No to datacenter.please reconsider

Doesn’t comply with hardware specs… No from me unless you meet the specs for hardware which you can find on this forum.

It’s a no for me.

Hello all,
I am the owner of this application.

Ok so I guess I need to report some fixes I have made regarding hardware. Let me start with the best place: I no longer use datacenter. The features of the hardware that is currently working in my home are as follows:

CPU: Ryzen 9 3900X 4.6 Ghz 12 Core
Ram: 64 GB 4000 MHz DDR4 CL18
Storage: 1 TB NVMe
GPU: GeForce GT 710 2GB
Port: 100 Mbit / s

Please keep adding your comments on my application.

What a high spec. cpu. And memory…
No graphic card?

Actually there is, but I don’t know if it will be enough. GeForce GT 710 2GB

please make the hardware integrity sufficient. Make sure your node is running with sufficient GPUs under your control and stay with us;)

That is not good enough. Need minimum rtx 2070 8gb
