    Can you please explain the Ukraine - Malaysia relation regarding reasons, setup, management, etc?

    Please explain how you live in Kiev but you said the node will be in Malaysia and yet it is a home set-up. If you can clear this matter up for us then you will likely get my vote.

    Hmmmm a bit strange to me

    have mining and node experience. and the hardware is sufficient. There are several ways to operate a remote node. I think it’s okay. stay with us. :+1:

    I’m a citizen of Ukraine but I’m located in Malaysia now. And it will be home setup. Sorry for late reply.

    I have already replied to the message. I’m a citizen of Ukraine but now located in Malaysia. And it will be home setup.

    I’ve already replied to the question. Now it must be clear. I’m sorry for some confusion.

    Thank you for explaining. You have my support.
