So I currently have 3 unique physical locations each with a different IP address and I was thinking about buying 1-3 of BitSeed's Bitcoin nodes to place 1 at each location to keep the bitcoin network healthy.

The product is here: https://bitseed.org/product/blockchain-node-developer-version/

If you'd like to help contribute to the bitcoin network by adding additional nodes (but can't host them at your specific location) I will be taking donations here: 15L58tNwXissWBYtV9KSCGE98uT3hHn2yC

If the crowdfunding is successful I will post images of the purchase confirmation along with the actual product when its hooked up for verification that your donations were spent to purchase the nodes. These nodes will be online 24/7 for years, are not subject to VPS shut downs/closures, and I will personally increase their storage capacity as the blockchain size grows myself.


Best Regards,
Lyth

Why would you buy Bitseed devices, when you can just run the software on computers you already own -- or ones you can buy really cheap? I guess I'm at a loss to imagine this being a venture anyone would give you money for.  Maybe you'll want folks to help you pay for the electricity to run the nodes with, too?

My main PC uses 400 watts/hour, heats up my room and I have 1 of them. Bitseeds only use 10w/h with minimal heat and minimal space impact. Old PC's have very inefficient PSU's and create a lot of heat, so I won't buy those cheap old pc's off ebay. If you're not interested that's okay.

Funny that you say that, I eneded up buying a RPi 2 and will be setting up my first dedicated node on that device. Hopefully it will arrive this week.
