Quantum computers are not a threat at this time and are unlikely to be anytime soon. They solve too narrow specific tasks, not related to decentralized or centralized systems.

    Beltelecom accept custom hardware inside their datacenter with required hardware for run your node ?

    No I’m going to use 3u server case Procase EB306

    Thank you for the reply :slight_smile:
    For me it’s fine :+1:

    Has my vote.

    Thanks guys for your votes, but unfortunately I was not chosen.
    Perhaps they prefer home servers with slow unreliable internet or dedicated servers in Hetzner than physically placing the node in a reliable data center, I don’t know but I’ve fallen interest in this project.
    Good luck

    @yucher We have only posted the initial selection and in the meantime, the team has reached out to you with further questions. We always strongly encourage nodes to provide more information and let us know why we should reconsider their applications. You can still be included in the final decision (which will be posted next week) if you provide clarification on the questions that the community and the team have asked.
