My vote for this guy

Thank you for your support

Sorry. No vote from me. A datacentre is hugely slowing the network. Gpu is obligatory

Thank you for your attention. I’m building a full-fledged server. There will certainly be a GPU. But I haven’t decided yet whether to put 2070 or 3070.

You say that you will deploy it in a datacentre(hetzner). So how much is that in euro?

Hetzner is only for testing the installation. Later, I will install my personal server in a data center in my hometown.

Testing? Expensive place to test

I run nodes for different projects. I’m comfortable using hetzner for testing. But to each his own.

Allright, so long you keep your word, it’s okay with me.
