Does cloud provider digitalocean allow users to run crypto full nodes?

I was just wondering what are the ramifications around running a crypto full node on the cloud providers ? ( I am okay to bear the huge bill )

Are there any restrictions ? Something like only people from europe are allowed to do so ? And only they need to setup nodes in EU datacentres something like that ?

Can i use digital oceans vm’s to run any crypto full node ?

Any inputs are much appreciated.

Hi there,

Yes, it looks like that mining any cryptocurrency, including but not limited to BitCoin or any similar currency, without explicit written permission.
