POST /lighthouse/validators/

Create any number of new validators, all of which will share a common mnemonic generated by the server.

A BIP-39 mnemonic will be randomly generated and returned with the response. This mnemonic can be used to recover all keys returned in the response. Validators are generated from the mnemonic according to EIP-2334, starting at index 0.

POST /lighthouse/validators/mnemonic

Create any number of new validators, all of which will share a common mnemonic.

The supplied BIP-39 mnemonic will be used to generate the validator keys according to EIP-2334, starting at the supplied key_derivation_path_offset. For example, if key_derivation_path_offset = 42, then the first validator voting key will be generated with the path m/12381/3600/i/42.
