You have my support. Good luck

Plus for Influencer, Minus for hosting at Hetzner Finland… Therefore my vote would be no if hosted at Hetzner.

If you can confirm that a GPU can and will be added then I would say yes. Without it, I would have to say No.

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 confirm that you are ready to run a GPU-node? In my view that should be a necessary requirement to be selected.

You need a GPU to have my vote.
