looks good and i think we need more chinese nodes, but i am not sure with the bandwith

A reasonable application and we need more nodes in Asia, you have my support.

However, if selected you will need to address the following:

  1. You bandwidth needs to be at least 100 Mbps Upload & Download

  2. You need a supported GPU (RTX 2070, RTX 2080, RTX 2080ti, RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2080 Super, RTX 3060ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3090) or a very powerful CPU.

Great geo location! Keep in mind though the min requirements of being able to run a node…

Need to meet min specs for my support.

Hi. You are too far from the required bandwidth to operate a node and the min storage is
1 TB SSD, not 500. As @Patty said, you need to meet the min specs to get my support.
