so you mean co-location? because hetzner does not offer RTX based GPU’s

Can you give full answers? the equipment is important so that otherwise all the work will be built clumsily if no one follows the rules

I am ready to provide a server with the stated requirements and good Internet, but I need to test everything, so I wrote about hetzner. I am not an expert in installing and maintaining nodes but I will try to do my best

That’s a better way to go, because note that CPU-only nodes running in over-represented datacenters (such as Hetzner) are now being disabled and asked to make changes to continue operating, see here.
