    Thanks for posting my application. Im so thankful about that. I had a chance to join the initial sale, now I hope my application will be approved and I can contribute more for the community. With 10+ years experiences in software development and devops, I believe that I can deliver a quality and quantity(uptime) node for community. For a success xx network.

    Hello Daniel, Could you confirm that you are going to use a GPU 2070 or up and meet the hardware requirments for running a node? I think that maybe your bandwidth will be an issue. Try to get at least 100/100 or better. Cheers!

    Hi @rene,

    Thanks for your comment. I confirm that Im going to setup a new server to run the node. We are currently have some sever running already but we planned to build a new one, so yes, we gonna buy a new RTX 2070. Regarding the network, that is our current speed, we are looking at a new plan or an additional line for the node. (we are having two lines already for our servers).
    Thank you.

    Looks fine except for internet speed issue. If you keep your word, my vote is yours.
    Good luck

    Looking good and your bought xxcoins at the sale so your a believer in the the project.
    I have 2 points
    Internet speed
    And your going to run in a DC is this with a GPU otherwise you slow the network down.
    Other than that you got my vote

    Thanks all for comments.

    Here is the hardware that we are going to build for our own node:

    1. AMD Ryzen 5 3600
    2. MSI MPG X570
    3. Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4
    5. Samsung 970 PRO MZ-V7S1T0BW

    Regarding the network, we are upgrading the line, but btw, is there any tool to test the speed for our nodes (other than speed test and online tools)? bc I have seen some issue regarding the network on Discord, there will be some timeout/latency/uptime issues even the network is 100/100 megabits per second.

    If you can get beter internet speed you have my vote.

    Thank you all for your kind words.
    Regarding the network. I got some advice from a node operator who also running a node in Vietnam. I will use the same network plan with his node. So I think network wont be an issue with my node.

    Love that you have responded so quickly and are eager to be involved. You have my vote.

    Thank you @Bulldog . Yes, the incentives will be locked for more than one year, so it is not my only purpose. But I really want to be the first nodes joining the network.

    Good application got my
