We are happy to announce that the initial selection for Orange Group XIII BetaNet node operators can be found here!
As with our previous selections, our goal is to accept the most complete applications that indicate they could meet the hardware and bandwidth requirements while also maintaining the decentralization of the network. We also value the comments and support the applicants receive in the BetaNet forum and their willingness to respond to any questions or provide additional information.
In this initial selection, we have rejected nodes that have not indicated they can meet the previously announced minimum requirements. We have also reached out to a number of nodes to ask for further clarification and are offering them the opportunity to provide some missing information before we publish the final decision. As always, if no response is received, these nodes will not be added to the list.
In this selection we noticed that there is a significant number of applications within the Eastern Europe bin. As a result, we have had to be highly selective with this group of applicants and have had to make some tough decisions in order to preserve the decentralization of the network.
For other nodes that were not selected, please keep in mind that this is an initial selection and is subject to change. We strongly encourage participation in the forum and welcome your responses so please let us know why we should reconsider your application!
