I live in Europe and will start this in the coming days. I already upgraded my Internet from 10Mbit/s download and 1Mbit/s upload to 60 Mbit/s download 20 Mbit/s upload (11 EUR/month to 14 EUR/month).
I spent 120 EUR in the raspberry 4, the micro SD card and a 2TB external hard disk. I am not planning to get rich with this, of course, but will be happy if I can get back my investment within one year maybe In general, I think this is a great idea and I am happy to be part of it! So a few questions:
- i know we are currently get paid in STORJ based on the current USD rate. any plans to select the payment method in the future? e.g. ETH, DAI etc.
- are there any plans to make this more accessible to everyone? I know some tech stuff, but for most people following the instructions to participate in this project must sound like chinese
- is my internet performance going to be affected due me sharing data etc?
- is there any place where I can see a geographical location of the nodes?
- is there anyone there with similar specs who can share feedback on how they are doing with STORJ?
