Application Authorization & Operator Registration

The following demonstrates how to authorize applications for tBTC v2 and how to register your operator address via the Threshold Dashboard.
One important step to get your node operating on the Threshold Network is proper application authorization as well as operator account registration. Applications need only be authorized once.
It is CRITICALLY important that both the tBTC application as well as the Random Beacon applications are authorized. A node cannot be deployed without both applications being properly authorized.
Please note: by authorizing these applications, an unbonding period of 45 days will go into effect on the T you stake for these applications. This cool-down period begins the day you submit an unstake request.

Application Authorization

To get started, visit the Threshold Dashboard and connect your wallet.
Threshold Dashboard
Click on "Configure Apps"
Authorizing Threshold Applications
Select BOTH tBTC and Random Beacon applications and enter your desired amount of T to stake per application. Note that the minimum is 40,000T.

Operator Registration

The operator account is the Ethereum account created on your node. In order for the network to associate your T stake with your node, you must register your Operator Address.
An Operator for the Provider registration can be submitted just once. The Operator address assignment cannot be updated.
Registering Operator Address
After both applications have been authorized, click on "Start Mapping" to begin the Operator Registration process.
Registering Operator Address
Enter your Operator Address in the field provided and click on "Map Address."
Once the steps above have been successfully completed, you are ready to move on to the next step in the node deployment process.
Don't forget: a tBTC v2 node will not be able to be deployed without successfully authorizing both the tBTC and Random Beacon applications, and registering the node's operator address FIRST.
