You can come back from disqualification. You have to set up a new node from scratch. That’s it. But its not efficient for SNO.
Yes buying storj would be much more efficient and that’s my plan for the future if I ever would be disqulified. I had some weeks ago offline time of 12 h. My ISP got offline. So i am a SNO since 3,5 years.
It’s just a matter of time the ISP goes for some hours offline for some reason and I think this can happen everywhere in the world, so in the long run I think storj goes offline on private SNO and then storj is hosted only by professional SNO.
I think this is the way storj wants to be or they find a better solution for disqualification and coming back on network again. They are always posting “just use your not used disk space and it’s done” but there so much more than only offer some disk space.
All in all a private SNO do all this just for fun and even when you use a professional and valide setup someday the ISP is fu… up all your work. When this happens i don’t configure a new node from scratch and lost for the network.
I think storj es getting much more centralized in the long run and only distributed but some big and valide SNO. Perhaps amazon distribute some of their space that is not used to storj in some years.
