Run Waterfall Node Testnet8 in Native App

Disclaimer

We have already updated the terminology in the documentation as follows: "Worker" has been renamed to "Validator" "Validator" has been renamed to "Verifier". We will implement these changes in the Node App and Docker version soon.

You can still continue using the current Docker version. In the next release, we will introduce a feature 'update from Docker'.

We are currently in the process of obtaining a Code Signing Certificate from Apple and another trusted certificate authority. Once we have obtained the certificates, you will no longer need to manually authorize the installation of the Waterfall Node app on your operating system. We will make an announcement when the certificates have been obtained.
