How different is setting up a pool for the testnet vs the mainnet?
Will pool operators for the testnet simply transition their pools to the mainnet?
If I would like to create a pool for the testnet, must it be ready when the testnet launches, or can I participate at a later date once my testnet pool is up and running?
Thanks!

Hello,
You can now update the link for ‘Genesis Hash + node-config.yaml’

To the following which automatically redirects to latest versions:

Quick question…What is the difference between the Beta and nightly testnet? Do you need to run both?

Both are different chains, like different universes. It depends on your needs, knowing that the nightly network is used for the latest developments just entering the testing phase, while the beta network is used for more refined instances of the development of a piece of code.
