Guildeline for Namada crew members in SE (delegation/staking/withdrawal)

Hi dear Namada CREW members! I know that may hurt when you don’t know what to do so feel free to use this guide to operate as CREW member in Namada shielded expedition.

We are working on hosting our RPC for you right now so you won’t need to synchronize directly with Namada SE chain, until that — please use VPS providers such as Hetzner, Vultr or anything else you like.
