Run a validator
Once your beacon node is running and synced, the next step is to set up a validator.
No validator client needed
Unlike other beacon chain clients, Nimbus does not require setting up a separate validator client process - the beacon node can itself perform validator duties.
This is a simple, safe and efficient way to get started.
Advanced users may want to use a separate validator client process instead.
Make a deposit for your validator
Import your validator keys into Nimbus
Start performing duties by restarting the node
