I’ve been a node operator since early alpha, but my original machine broke and I never got around to rebuilding. Now that I have a proper UnRAID server for other purposes, and 44TB worth of drives (not all for storj, i’m afraid) I thought I better get back into it and earn me some storj.
I love the updated dashboard, so much better! But I noticed that there are satellites for Europe & America, but none for Australia (where I am), or even Asia. So my question is, will my distance from the nodes affect my earnings? I know it’s about uptime, but if I’m not responding as fast as those in the countries where the satellite is, I have a feeling it’s going to hurt me. If that’s the case, will there be a satellite for Asia-Pacific (or preferably in Sydney) in the future?
