Hello! This is specification of my home devices, i wrote them for an example. But I’d like to run node by google cloud or hetzner.

Hi , Google cloud only offers Tesla cards in the cloud server which wouldn’t work for the XX network.
The GPU needs to be a Turing card (20x0) or Ampere in the near future (30x0).


Thanks, ok, may be i’l run node in the hetzner or by my home devices.

you have my support!

Vote for you. Good luck!

You seem a little confused as to what you will do. Figure it out and get back to us. Until then NO!

Hi! I undestand your opinion! But as I wrote above, I will run the node at home devices. It was a mistake to write in the cheklist about datacenter…
