Get involved in Eth2 πŸ‘‹
Here's all the ways you can help with Ethereum and future Eth2-related efforts.

How do you want to get involved?

The Ethereum community will always benefit from more folks running clients, staking, and bug hunting.

πŸ’»

Run a client

Running a client means you'll be an active participant in Ethereum. Your client will help keep track of transactions and check new blocks.

πŸ’°

Stake your ETH

If you have ETH, you can stake it to become a validator and help secure the network. As a validator you can earn ETH rewards.

Run beacon chain clients

Key to Ethereum's long term security is a strong distribution of clients. A client is software that runs the blockchain, checking transactions and the creation of new blocks. Each client has its own features, so choose one based on what you're comfortable with.

Go bug hunting

Find and report bugs in Eth2 upgrade specifications or the clients themselves. You can earn up to $50,000 USD and earn a place on the leaderboard.

A bug might be:

  • specification non-compliance issues
  • finality breaking bugs
  • denial of service (DOS) vectors
  • and more...

Join the research

Like most things with Ethereum, a lot of the research is public. This means you can take part in the discussions or just read through what the Ethereum researchers have to say. ethresear.ch covers more than just the Eth2 upgrades, but there's a large Eth2 focus.
