    From Kazakhstan and node in The Netherlands??

    Clarification of the above question would be helpful.

    Mmm I have to say no.

    Hello everyone. Thanks for the questions in my thread. I live in Kazakhstan, now there are rented dedicated servers in the Netherlands, but there is also a home server, but not configured yet, as I am waiting for a decision from the community about my participation. If they give me the opportunity to become a member of the community, then I will raise the server in Kazakhstan.

    At the moment I am a node operator for the following projects: Aleo, Nym, Desmos, Solana, IronFish

    Hi. When I signed up for in May, I had very little idea what difficulties I would face in the process of installing the nodes. Since May, I am a validator in Solana, I have already installed more than 10 nodes for this project (to friends and acquaintances), and now I am an administrator in the telegram sandbox (I help newbies install a node and solve monitoring issues). Now I think I’m ready to try my hand at validation on the Ahead of the question regarding server location. Due to the unrealistically high price of hosting a server in data centers in Kazakhstan (1000 euros per month for a 500 Mbps channel), I plan to order a server either in the OVX data center or in another, where centralization is at a low level (I remember that hetsner is already prohibited) … Will you give me a second chance and take me on your team?

    Hi. Could you look at the post where I replied to Robbie84. Perhaps you will reconsider your answer?

    Hi. I answered the guys’ question, I hope I can join your team.
