      Nice and good to have a non technical applicant. Could you provide some additional answers? For the rest you got my vote.

      Good application. Got my vote.

      HW specs look great, Bandwidth looks great. I’d sure appreciate more answers on the application but if you’re not a bot I’d be happy to give you the nod. We need more solid nodes,not datacenters.

      Nice specs, has my vote

      Definitely not a bot :slight_smile:

      I’m quite new to crypto/blockchain and just trying to learn a bit within my already busy life, hence the answers are a bit sparse.
      From my brief understanding, blockchain/cryptography is a great new technology, but the advent of quantum computing may put many at risk - xx network seems to be able to address this, along with the many other benefits of blockcahin - decentralised, privacy, etc

      Thanks for all the approvals everyone!

      Glad to see your so eager to learn. You picked the right one to learn from!

      Hardware specs look great, You have my vote, Good luck!

      Looking good!
