Are You Running Crypto Masternodes on DigitalOcean Droplets?

Just curious how many of y'all are running crypto masternodes on DigitalOcean Droplets.

If so, what OS and hardware specs are you running, and for which coin/token/project?

I’m specifically interested in what Droplet specs are needed are for some of the most popular masternodes, including: Dash, Pivx. Energi, Stakenet, Wagerr, Zcoin, SmartCash, Lux, etc.

Cheers!

I’ve run masternodes on both DigitalOcean & AWS. ElastiCache was a PITA on AWS, DO worked straight out of the box, no caching or IP issues with the MN.

I run a LUX MN; use Ubuntu v16.04, not v18.04.
The standard shared DO CPU droplet with 1GB RAM, 1 vCPU, 25GB SSD is all you need, however I run on the 2GB/1vCPU/50GB tier as its a bit faster for setup & management. These MN don’t require much beyond basic specs for install, then just 24/7/365 100% uptime is key.

Let’s hope this long bear market turns around & we can enjoy the residual returns as we support our favorite crypto projects!
