Empty application, User located in France and Hosting in Germany… sounds more like another Hetzner user…

Yes, weak application, rather empty and Hetzner VPS likely.

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 indicate that you could run a node with the required GPU? I’d consider that a necessary requirement to be preselected.

Well we need to see a more filled application.
