I need at least 2 ip addresses for nameservers

As I understand it, the point of asking for 2 IPs for name-servers is redundancy - if the box behind one IP goes down, then the other is likely to be up (assuming they’re on different physical machines).
<br>Having two IPs assigned to the same box won’t give you this redundancy, so kinda defeats the purpose.
<br>Ideally, you’d launch two droplets, and set up a nameserver on each.
Forgot to mention, you can have 2 name servers on same IP, for short term I can say it worked fine…long term, I can’t guarantee you wouldn’t run into issues later on.
I’m pretty sure you can only have 1 IP per droplet right now. I went through the same mess with trying my own name servers, its way easier to use DO’s name servers and put a wildcard A record in for sub domains so you don’t have to create a new A record with every sub domain creation. If you want all the default DNS records I put in DO’s DNS manager for all my domains, let me know.
