Daniel, what does this require?  If it's about bearing trust, I'm happy to step up.  If it's about being able to monitor technically and maintain upkeep I am probably not a good candidate.

Happy to participate if it makes sense.
Excellent question.  I don't have extensive amounts of time for technical details however If it's something I can throw a few hours a week at then I am a technical user and have my own VPS and would love to help where I can.

My current host is US based.

Also any idea, ballpark, how much disk space this will take up?


Edit: On second thought count me in whatever it takes.

I would like to be one please!

I am in Northern California. Amazon EC2, softlayer depending on what is needed is most likely is what I would use for a VPS.

I am thinking that, depending on what is generated for running a node that I would return a majority of profits back to the community. That is of course after any cost to run the node has been filled. I will consider weekly "drawings" if a way to prove fair, charity, or kick backs would be in line. I will let the users who vote decide what they would like. And by no means would any one idea have to be "set in stone" should the voters change their minds. I am of course open to any suggestion should I be fortunate enough to be granted a delegate position.

For helping the testnet then I'm up for it, also for the initial phase of getting the system up and running I'd also be happy to help out until enough people show up who want to do this as their jobs.

So I also raise my hand, vps located in the Netherlands.

We are looking for volunteers to be one of the initial delegates... we will be providing instructions on how to sign up in this thread.     If you are interested, post here and explain what you will be doing.

  1) Participate on the test network with each new revision. 
  2) Run full nodes on the test network and enable your delegate.

Things to post:
  1) Geographic Region where you will be hosting.

The server only requires a basic VPS right now, but you should be prepared to grow with the DAC.

I am sure others will have some feedback for you.

Instructions for how to be an initial delegate are here:

You must participate in the next test network to be an initial delegate.
