    Wondering how are you are going to deploy it in a datacenter when you state that you are non technical and have no past experience in deploying servers in a dc?

    Hi @Robbie84 , thanks for your question. I am not alone when setting up my new computer and use colocation in DC.
    Already my friend is a node runner that who suggest me make a search about xxnetwork and David Chaum in early days.
    So, you re right, i am non technical but actually i know about how system works or what to do for running a node. Because i strongly believe project and invest money so i improve myself everyday , I also learned a little bit about linux. And hope to be a node runner soon as you. Have a good day. Thanks
