    No to datacenter. please reconsider…then I will vote.

    Ah not datacenter please.

    Hello may I know what the issue with using data center is ? It guarantees uptime . I will be moving to my own hardware when/if I am selected for the mainnet.

    Willing to discuss it further

    What is the India and Ukraine connection?
    To many red flags…sorry…no vote

    I am from India and will be running the node in a data center in Lithuania. Is there a problem because of it ? Should I consider moving it to a data center in India ?

    are you from india but live in lithuania? Will you run the knot with your own hardware in your own urban role?

    I live outside India now so I chose a data center which is in Lithuania.
