Become a validator

This page explains how to register as a validator on Ronin. After following the steps in this guide, you'll become a Validator Candidate and have a chance to be selected as a Standard Validator on the next day.

Validator roles

There are three validator roles:

  • Validator Candidate. The role you get after following the steps in this guide.
  • Standard Validator. Every day, at least 10 Validator Candidates with the highest stakes are selected as Standard Validators. The system records your total staking amount at 00:00 UTC every day for the selection process.
  • Governing Validator. The validators chosen by the community and Sky Mavis to ensure network security. Governing Validators are validators by default, and they account for more than half of the total validator set.


  • Prepare at least 250,000 RON for the initial stake.
  • Prepare 100 RON as a starting balance to maintain the bridge.


  1. Go to Validator Dashboard > Become a Validator.

  2. Familiarize yourself with the requirements and slashing rules. It's also highly recommended that you read the white paper.

  3. Set up your validator and bridge operator nodes.

  4. Fill in your addresses and specify the commission rate.

  5. Deposit 100 RON into the bridge operator address. This address is used to automatically sign transactions on the bridge every epoch, and having a starting balance there will help you avoid slashing if you end up being selected as a validator.

  6. Provide the initial stake of RON.

Congratulations, you're now a Validator Candidate.
