This is so good. It helps us think through how we are contributing to diversity. Also, helps us factor in what internal tasks we would need to prioritize to strengthen Lido and Ethereum.

We’ve been late in getting these reports out, but have now caught up thanks to the hard work by @sabrychiaa . In the meantime we’re working on an alternative mechanism to deliver this data and insights that will both be simpler to update / maintain and give readers more interactive options to compare and contrast data over time.

Thank you for these reports and the transparency @sabrychiaa @Izzy !

Do you think it would be possible to have the name of the different Node Operators (if they are public/regulated entities) and the breakdown of how many validators each of them are running in this alternative mechanism?

Sure, although this information is all public and on-chain (see https://operators.lido.fi/ as an example) and in the Lido Operators Database of our Operator Portal.

Thank you for sharing, I didn’t know about operators.lido.fi !

@satBalwyn also shared RatedV0 which gives a lot of information as well.

Hello, we have recently considered cooperation with lido ethereum, and now we want to join goerli
test network node operator first. How can we apply to be a node operator in goerli? Your opertor portal is not useful now.

Currently the testnet is only used as a testing bed for operators whose applications have been accepted by the DAO so that they can get familiar with the mechanism of the node operator registry and deposit functionality. You can contact the node operator management workstream via [email protected] for additional info.

The OP has been updated to include a link to the VaNOM app which contains all quarterly reports in one interactive app. Details about it can be found on the Lido blog!

Can you share the dataset? I’d like to know which operators are geographically located where, for server and jurisdiction.

Not currently, no, as not all NOs are currently comfortable with this information being shared, for a variety of reasons (and obviously sharing it for some makes it easier to deduce the rest).
