You have my support.
Would have liked to see your thoughts on the last few questions but the specs look good. You have my support
Sure thing Steve,
Privacy means democracy, while generally the true democracy is the thing we all try to seek.
We all want to express ourselves freely and only in case of privacy this is possible.
Centralized systems are dead since they have born, they are only supported by class which wants full control. Not sure that quantum computers could have full control over decentralized systems.
Tbtw this is not my first experience with decentralized projects. There is Pirate (ARRR ticker) that I mined several years ago and was some kind of pioneer there, while it was a very young project.
P.S. small update if it is necessary, I will use GeForce RTX 3090 24G for the node if I would be eligible, as there are some issues having video card that I mentioned before, other spec will be the same.
P.P.S. Forum mail system works not properly, I guess, as I dont have any confirmation mails with password
