    Vote for you!

    I approve this application! :slight_smile:

    Could you please specify which ssd drive you want to use? make, model, characteristics?

    I would love to see the answers to the last couple of questions. Other than that - great application!

    You have my vote and nice to see someone from that geo location.

    Hi it’s intel SSD

    Thanks . Crypto is slowly but surely on the rise in India

    I think there is just a few corporates controlling the data which are our right. It’s one thing if you consent to it and get some benefits for it but right now we get nothing . Our data is our right and we should be in control of it .

    Since quantum computing might be a danger to cryptography we must be prepared enough for the future although I don’t see any danger in the immediate future

    If selected, please be aware to run it with gpu. If you don’t than no compensation. Look at the website…For the rest good geo location (if true)

    Nice to see someone from your location! Has my vote. Hopefully you can attract others!

    Good application :+1:
