How to Find a Squad

With the upcoming 7-Week Techne Credential wave starting soon, we’re inviting you to find a Squad!

Squads are groups of 4 or more Obol community members who are interested in working together to deploy a distributed validator (DV) cluster. These will often include at least one Squad Leader, who has previous staking experience and can help others in the squad. With that said, a formal Squad Leader is not required to form a Squad!

Squad Leaders are looking for members like you to join their squad! Please fill in the template below and posting it within an existing Squad Leader volunteer thread and work together to discuss potentially teaming up in a squad during the 7-Week Techne Credential Program!

i think you should better call out Squad leaders here or create a thread where leader should advertise that they are looking for New members. @Anthony

Thanks for the input Jack!

The current option of scanning for Squad Leaders here doesn’t work well?
