Please state what HW you will use if selected.

Something is not right here. Applicant states he is from Mali, but runs the node in China? I understand the possibility to run the node in a data centre everywhere in the world, but applicant indicates that he will run the node in a university, suggesting in-country locality.

In addition, what makes me suspicious is that some of the statements in this application resemble the statements 1:1 from another application I just reviewed.

I’m not supporting this application until applicant clarifies his/her relation to the above application.

Sharp observation by Marc and agree with him: Applicant(s?) must provide full clarity…
No support until then.

I still don’t understand the Mali - China mixup, but ok we all make typos :laughing:.

Being transparent is the only way you can join the project. Don’t get me wrong: I would like to see you join but you must meet the requirements. My questions:

  1. You have a blocking issue with the upload speed. You need at least 100 mbit/s. Can you upgrade?

  2. Please specify the HW you are expecting to use.

  3. Are we talking about dedicated private owned HW, Colocation or Hosting?
