The final selection of the Orange Group BetaNet node operators can be found here.
As in our previous selections, applications remained open to a second period of public comment. This is a critical step in our process as it encourages the community to provide invaluable feedback while allowing us to ask for clarification on incomplete applications we found had potential, but were not included in the initial list.
Applicants were able to provide more detailed answers to their applications and upon additional consideration, we made the decision to accept 3 more nodes into the final list. Additionally, we have had to remove a node as they have indicated that although they have tried, they cannot meet the speed requirements.
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!
We are also happy to announce that the final Orange Group selection consists of 78 nodes in 24 countries around the world, distributed in 7 geographic bins: Americas, Western Europe, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Russia, and Asia.
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.
