    Free electricity is a bonus - are you mining anything? Could you clarify the bandwidth please? You said upload is 100/100 but download only 12.

    Yes if you provide download bandwidth specs, can you increase the speed?

    With free electricity I suspect you are already mining ALT’s ?
    Post and vlogs are a plus …

    How is this even possible?

    Maybe with solar panels or a connection BEFORE the kwh meter.

    Friendly reminder: keep your word please and run your node at home.If you are planning to place it in a datacentre without GPU, it won’t work. So think about it.

    For example, they can run it at their job, where their employer pays for electricity.
