Please also consider the following: The 23 USD per year is for a specific VPS in a few locations: “RackNerd’s KVM VPS solutions! KVM VPS in Los Angeles, San Jose, Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, New Jersey, New York, Ashburn, and Amsterdam Instantly Provisioned.”
If many provisioned in the racknerd datacenters it does not help presearch to be decentralized, the IP addresses included in the offering are probably all part of the same
/x network which will result in the
/x network being blocked (eventually).
On another note: Specs for this VPS: 512 MB RAM, 1 vCore, 15 GB, RAID-10 SSD Cached 500 GB, ,1Gbps 1, Free IP. are not very expensive on the grid. If someone (or a group) takes on the “provisioning” service effort and tokens are put in a single account for 36 months of presearch deployment Discount Levels
With the deployment being approx. 0.05 per hour -> 36 TFT per month -> 2160 TFT’s put in a single account you get 60% discount ( which makes it 36TFT * 12 months * 60% discount = 175 TFT per annum). If you buy the tokens now, the operational costs will be a lot lower than the 23USD of racknerd.
