Running a Coda Testnet Node on a budget

Hi all,

I wrote a review of the VPS provider I have selected to run my node on for the year. Being that the major providers are charging a high premium for a spec-ed out instance, I was able to find one with 6 cores and 16 GB of RAM for just over $100/year. Check out my review at I hope it helps get more folks on the testnet!


Virtual private server does not imply continuous utilization of the processor at 100%. Such a constant load may not be pleasant for the provider and you may be asked to purchase a dedicated server. There are no miracles (unfortunately)

I’m curious what others think of running a staking node on a VPS with regards to security. Do you feel that a VPS compromises this?
