My error - i have read the question like “What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating a network node?” (without xx) and was answering about “some abstract network”. So yes - i’m not interested in joining networks who’s team lacks vision which is obviously not the case here.

Thanks for kind words!

Will answer any questions!


As long as your server specs can meet the recommended specs, then you have my support :+1:
