Hello,

I have been reading this post recently:

And it states that one of the multiple things that are factors on a node reputation is:

Proof of Work- The amount of CPU on average required to generate a node identity that Satellites will approve for receiving data. Proof of work is a mathematical challenge that must be solved by a storage node prior to joining the network. When proof of work is complete, the result of the proof is hashed and a NodeID is generated.The NodeID includes proof of the degree of difficulty of the proof of workeffort in the NodeID generation.

So that makes me think: is the minimum difficulty set on the identity generation important regarding the reputation of a new node (and potentially speeding up itÂ´s vetting and filling)?

Also, on the official documentation of identity creation it says that:

This can take several hours or days, depending on your machines processing power and luck.

Plan to run your Node on a NAS, Raspberry Pi or similar? Create your identity on a more powerful machine and transfer it over.

So, does it make sense to use PoW as part of node reputation, when it is not mandadtory to be a PoW done on the node itself?

Thanks in advance!
