    Motherboard with chipset b550
    Gpu gigabyte rtx 2070 super
    RAM 32gb HyperX
    SSD Samsung 970 PRO SSD 1TB – M.2 NVMe
    Hope it will be enough.

    Hi! Thank you for your response.
    Of course, I plan to place the node in the local data center TheHost (, bandwidth there can be from 100 Mbps to 10 Gbps. I am sure that in the data center it will work much more stable and reliable and it does not cost a lot of money.

    Can you put a custom computer AMD 2700x with dedicated graphic (nvidia 2070) card in this data center ? (Often refuse custom computer)

    Thank you for your reply

    Sure! Of course, we can place our assembled custom computers there, with required computer specifications since there is a colocation option there. And I have known this provider for a long time, they are proven guys. This is top service in Ukraine.

    Ok that’s good for me :+1:
    Thank you for your reply and sorry can’t found “english” on your website :rofl:
