Is it possible to migrate a running solo chain to a parachain in order to gain decentralized proofs of validity? I don't know if there's any material related to this topic available (I haven't found any), but I was wondering if it is possible to do so.

The idea is to develop a private network where only certain people will have access, but later on, I would like the chain to be integrated as a parachain, or at least get access to decentralized validation for blocks.

UPDATE: Can we develop a solo chain and a parachain using the same runtime and node? Using the parachain-template I'm not able to produce blocks the same way I could with the node-template using the --dev flag (I guess it is because there's no GRANDPA pallet included)

I believe this guide describes how to do this.
