    might need to upgrade GPU eventually, but looks good, vote yes

    bare min system specs, will need to upgrade once MainNet , but application is good vote yes

    I’m lukewarm about this application. It doesn’t seem like the candidate put a lot of effort in the application in that they didn’t answer all the questions. The candidate has bare minimum specs, but that’s ok since the minimum specs are chosen to be sufficient for the operation of the node.

    The evo 970 isn’t fast enough you will need the evo 970 pro otherwise you would have my vote

    Hi, thanks for the votes, comments are accepted. updated, M2 nvme 980 pro 1T.

    I will be glad to take part in the testnet

    I bought two for raid I hope this speed will be enough :upside_down_face:

    Clearly experienced in the field, but definitely would be good to see a bit more put into some of the answers. Willingness to upgrade HW. Also in a country I’ve never heard of… so good for spreading the network, haha. Overall has my vote.

    thanks for the vote :+1:
