Would you be able to upgrade the connection speed to meet those in the Revised BetaNet Node Hardware Requirements. I also assume you’d be sourcing the hardware to meet the specs above too?

Would like to hear that you can meet the hardware and bandwidth specs.

That is correct Steve.

I can increase bandwidth to up to 300/250 if requested.

Forgot to mention. Hardware will be suitable too.

Your node is in Nuremberg Germany. So the price of the electricity is in euro and not Russian rubble. Mistake maybe? For BetaNet 100mb is okay but for mainnet not. So a upgrade is needed. Spread the word about the XX NETWORK!

Hey Robbie84,

too bad I din’t get an invite, but I am more than ready to start with the 350 mbps, if that is the only reason, why I got declined.
As for hardware, I do not see any problem – I can surely meet all the required specs.

Have a great weekend.
