Good application hot my vote
Nice! You get my vote!
Great background and hardware, thanks! I think the validator will work well
please give an answer to the last questions and my vote is yours
Vote for you !!!
A yes from me.
Dear Artem, thank you for your interest. I believe that we should think and understand the severity of quantum computers as for centralized and decentralized systems. On the wrong hands, it can be similar to the nuclear bomb in the digital world. The government may use this power to shut down weak systems as well. I have chosen xx network because they understand the problem and implemented protection mechanisms.
What is your opinion for this case?
I support you
Very good application even though you intend to run in a datacenter.
Nice application. Has my support
Mmm not normally a fan of datacenter but this is a very good application.
Great application. Yes for me
Thank you for the support, guys!
You have my vote
Yea from me as well.
