Hey, so for the last month I’ve been studying the possibility to create several NKN nodes on a physical format instead of using a VPS.
And in fact, what I found is profoundly dissapointing, as I basically understood that is de facto impossible to build a commercial scale NKN node project physically. Because each node need a public static IPv4, and you need your ISP to actually provide you one, but in most cases they wont or they would just tax you like 15$ per 1 ip which is just not profitable, in opposition to 5$ per VPS with 1GBps and a free static IPv4.
This scenario lets you with only the possibillity to use VPS on a commercial scale, which is frustrating because it just concentrates the grand majority of nodes in a few centralized providers. Instead of letting the community the power to build their own network infrastructure with a few hundred homemade servers.
Leave your thoughts below.
- I don’t really mind
