      I take it that you live in Turkey, your node runs in Ukraine but you also state that the nbode will run from a personal home. Can you explain this? Who will manage the node?

      Hi. Two of us live in Turkey, but one of us lives in Ukraine. He is going to run the system from his home.
      He is going to control the hardware part and we are going to control the software one with SSH.
      This 3-Node system will function with 3 different internet connections.
      I’m planning to go to Ukraine myself when the system is set to make sure that everything works properly.

      After a while we are planning to move there.

      Thank you for your support

      Thank you for your understanding and support. I appreciate that.
