    It is very costly to provide the required connection speeds in Turkey. That’s why I chose Ukraine. My friend lives there. I had a separate internet line connected to his house. My friend will provide support for the physical state of the Node, I hope to handle the rest with SSH.

    The previous application was approved and I purchased the hardware. But I made irreversible mistakes during installation. Because of this, I had to renew the application. My hardware is ready and waiting for approval.
