missing most answers…

First of all,sorry that I missed some questions.
Hereby some additional information.

-The node,if selected, will be located in my home.The ISP is KPN.
-Electricity cost: 0,21 cent per Kwh
-I worked more than 12 years in various locations servicing datacentres.
-About the hardware: most is already in place.Just need a other cpu and gpu.That will be a GTX 2070 and a Ryzen 7 cpu.
-I want to be a node because of the passive income and to support this project which will hopefully succeed.
-It has always been important but at this current enviroment it is more than ever necesarry to have and MAINTAIN privacy. That can be accomplished with the succes of the XX network. And hopefully there will be companies which will use Elixxir and Praxxis.
