Building an Ethereum Node for Staking w/ Rocket Pool – Part 2: Software & Syncing

Build a local Ethereum node for validating and staking using popular software/hardware components. This second video covers getting the latest software, choosing ETH 1.0 and 2.0 clients and syncing your nodes clients with the Ethereum blockchain.

00:05:47 – Up next… Part 3: Ethereum Node Security & SSH

The Ethereum merge is upon us, where the current Ethereum Mainnet will “merge” with the beacon chain proof-of-stake system. Kiln, the latest merge testnet, has launched meaning the proof-of-stake transition is underway. Additional shadowforks are currently being used to test the additional testnets. Prepare for this event on the mainnet by setting up a local, decentralized Ethereum validation node. The multipart series will cover an end-to-end build, setup, deployment, and maintenance of an Ethereum node using the Rocket Pool CLI. Rocket Pool is a first of its kind ETH2 Proof of Stake Protocol, designed to be community owned, decentralized and trustless. Stake your Ether without the need for centralized services.
