I think it’s important to first find out if it’s financially feasible for you to build the hardware before we can support your application.

I’d like to see an answer to you describing the distinctives of xxnetwork since I believe there’s some confusion based on your concern about Chinese miners.

If you take a look at the Revised BetaNet Node Hardware Requirements you can price up the cost of a node.
I built my own and it cost about $1800 with new components. I hope this helps with your calculations.

Thank you guys for your answers to my application. This helped me a lot to make calculations of the cost of the hardware that I’d use to run a betanet node. Financially I will be able to use even better hardware than you recommend. Thus I’m not anymore concerned about Chinese dominating xx network :slight_smile:
