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 work effort 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 it´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!
