The final selection of the Orange Group II BetaNet node operators can be found here.
We are also happy to announce that the final Orange Group II selection consists of 46 nodes in 23 countries around the world, distributed in 7 geographic bins: Americas, Western Europe, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, Russia, and Asia.
As in our previous selections, applications remained open to a second period of public comment, a critical step in our process that encourages the community to provide invaluable feedback. This also allowed us to ask for clarification on incomplete applications we found had potential, but were not included in the initial list. A number of applicants provided further detail to their application and upon additional consideration of their answers we made the decision to add 3 more nodes into the final list.
You can read details about how the initial decision was made here, which carries over to the final decision.
As always, we want to thank everyone who commented and helped us with this process!
For those of you who did not make it, or for those who want to participate and join our BetaNet, we want to remind you that applications are still open!
xx node team.
