voting no, because applicants country different from hosting country. Looks just like a Hetzner hosting.

Agreed. 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.

Could you please confirm here that you’d run a node with the required GPU? I’d consider that a necessary requirement to be selected.

No
