        Empty application

        If you do not have the investment to set up a computer node, why the application? It is important to know that going forward separate setups are required for Node and Gateway.

        Upload speed does not meet the minimum requirement.

        Not supported

        With a bandwidth spec well below the recommended spec and a mostly empty application I have to say ‘No’ to this one.

        Nothing here…

        This doesn’t meet the requirements. No vote.

        No.

        No response= not serious
