Registering an Operator

For information on how to set up and run an SSV Node, please visit the dedicated page.

After successfully running an SSV node, an operator must register it to the SSV Network in order to be discoverable by validators.

You can register your operator through the SSV network web app or via a transaction directly to the smart contract

While registering your operator you will need to provide the following parameters:

The wallet address used to register the operator is the only address that will hold management permissions for it.

Registering an Operator on the WebApp

Make sure to connect your Web3 wallet with the WebApp, and that the address corresponds with the one you want to manage your Operators with.

Note: Your account is associated with your Web3 wallet.

If you are connecting for the first time, you should see a screen like the image below:

In the following screen, select Register Operator (just make sure that you followed the guide on Node setup and that your SSV Node is running).

The next screen will ask you to input the Operator's public key (refer to the Node setup guide for key generation) and provide a confirmation of the Operator owner address.

Please verify once more that the owner address correspond to the wallet address you want to manage your operators with.

Click Next when ready.

In the following screen, shown below, you are being asked to set the Operator Fee.

Enter a number and click Next when ready.

This confirmation screen presents a recap of the information input so far. Double check everything and click Register Operator when ready.

The WebApp will generate a blockchain transaction, make sure to open your Web3 wallet, if it does not automatically and confirm the transaction.

The WebApp will update, waiting for the transaction to be confirmed by the network.

Congratulations, your Operator is successfully registered, and stakers could now choose it to operate their validators.
