I created a Digital Ocean account today to deploy an NKN node. I followed the guide I found here. The Ubuntu node came up fast and without issue. I checked NKN status and it was waiting for 10 tokens. I transferred 10 token from beneficiary wallet and waited …
All of a sudden I was kicked off the terminal and Digital Ocean website. Upon re-authentication to the website, my account was “locked” due to “atypical activity”. Literally all I did was deploy the droplet, terminal into it, backup wallet/pswd and check the log.
4 hours later, Digital Ocean replied with the following:
Thank you for following up in regards to the lock on your account. To be sure, I just conducted a manual review of your account and have confirmed that we are unable to override this decision.
I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this. Additionally, please note that we’re unable to share details regarding what led to this decision as this is critical to maintaining our security systems.
At least I got the damn wallet/pswd so I don’t lose another 10 NKN … if I decide to keep going down this rabbit hole. The AWS node I deployed yesterday is still syncing and relay rate is <40K/hour. My windows node at home relays >354K/hour.
Not sure what I did to get banned from Digital Ocean? I was a customer for 16 whole minutes. Took my $5 pre-authorization and kicked me to the curb like trash.
