How to join Polygon as a Validator

Hey there,
I am struggling to find detailed information how new validators can join the Polygon network.
Is the auction mechanism still active and why would a Validator drop off?
Any plans to extend the validator set?

Feel free to send some links or discuss here is the chat.

Hey @DanielSchrdr,
Thanks for your message!

At present there is a waitlist for Validators on POS mainnet, and we are not currently taking expressions of interest.

As mentioned in PIP4 we are currently moving to phase 2 of Part C.
Where the community will approve the evaluation params for onboarding.

We are working on a formalised admissions and applications process. Once this is complete and tested, it will be shared publicly.

Please also feel free to join our discord. It is our secondary place for updates and conversation.
