New Node Provider Proposals

Hey @SvenF we got our proposal voted on negative by Dfinity, is there a reason of this? did we do something wrong?

Hi @stollmar there’s nothing wrong with the wiki submission and documentation, but the link to the identity document as well as the hash needs to be added to the proposal. The proposal now only has the link and hash of the self-declaration document. If you resubmit the same proposal and add the link and hash to the identity document, you’re proposal should be okay to be voted in.

New proposal

Dear All,

After numerous shipment delays and other challenges, it is with great excitement and enthusiasm to announce that we have successfully onboarded (3) nodes in the dr1 data center. Please review and vote on Proposal 127677 here:

This proposal will update our node provider reward configuration and fully meets the new Dec 1. purchase deadline requirement. The proof of hardware order and contract commitment dated 10/30/2023 can be found on our node provider wiki page here:

In particular, thanks and recognition to @SvenF, @icarus and the devs for helping us along the way.

Looking forward to contributing in the months and years ahead. Wishing you all the best!

Kind Regards,

Alex

Hi @SvenF The 7 Nodes that were approved by Proposal 124524 have now been onboarded. As per the changed procedures introduced late last year I have attached proof that the machines were ordered before 1 December 2023. I have also included the emails that communicate updating the node_pipeline.csv file to include these nodes.

Thank you

Thanks for your reply, that explains a lot. What is still a bit vague on my part is how to go about setting up the node machine after purchase. As you mentioned and as I’ve seen on other pages, datacenters have been mentioned a couple of times. I am interested in purchasing a node machine, but if my understanding is correct, this is not something I can setup just anywhere.

Same for the node operator record, if one purchases a node machine strictly for setting it up for IC, then it wouldn’t have any record. Sorry if there’s any silly questions there, but ive only been on investing side of the coin thus far and im willing to also do it by providing the node.

Thanks for your patience

Hi @CodeLancasterX you are correct on the node machine location and data center location. The reasoning behind the IC Target Topology is to decentralise the network across several different dimensions, i.e. node providers, data centers, and location. This means that per subnet (we have 37 subnets currently), there can be only one node machine for each node provider in the subnet, one node machine for each data center in the subnet, and two node machines for each country in the subnet. So yes, the location of the Data Center, and the number of node machines you want to onboard as a Node Provider are important for the decentralisation of the IC. There is a optimization tool available on the wiki where you can validate whether new node machines would actually help the decentralization.

Not sure what your question regarding node operator record refers to. A new node machine, once onboarded, is “ready to join a subnet”. Depending on whether additional nodes are needed in a subnet, for example if another node is unhealthy or dead due to hardware issues, that new node machine will be “swapped” for the unhealthy/dead node machine, and hence joins the subnet. Another reasons for swapping a new node machine for another node machine in a subnet might be to improve the decentralization in that subnet.

Hope this clarifies.

Thanks @Anypoint, is it possible to add this document to the wikipage for Anypoint as well?

Hi Sven,

I have done this and it said it is in Moderation … hasn’t popped out the other side …

Attached are the 2 pdf’s … FYI

Greg

Apologies have added the links to the Anypoint Page - page now in Moderation. Here are the links to the documents,

Hello all
I hope this message finds you all in good health. I am writing to formally register as a Node Provider under Natalia Kulesha . I understand that there are currently no vacant slots in the topology. I will wait until they become available.

You can find my new proposal to join the network by clicking on this link: Proposal Number 127688

My self-declaration documents are also uploaded to the Internet Computer Wiki under Natalia Kulesha Internet Computer Wiki

Should you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am grateful for your support and votes in favor of accepting my proposal. Thank you.

Best Regards

Greetings, My name is Celso Legra Martinez, currently working in Tampa as a field engineer for Sitetech Services. But as an entrepreneur and lover of cryptography I decided to start my company Legra-Neurons. Last year in November I began acquiring the hardware to provide services as a node operator to help ICP grow and achieve the decentralization milestone.

Not only my investment is with the community providing decentralization, but also in ICP as an investor. Here my Neuron ID “11376630100357207701” where I reinvested part of the hardware that did not meet the December 1st limit to enter as a Node Operator.

Thanks for the opportunity to be par of this great community and project.

Hi everyone,

My name is Gael Chloe, I’m an independent investor and part of the IC community since 2022.

I’m writing to formally register as a Node Provider under the entity NODAL CAPITAL. I would like to start by adding 6 nodes in Brazil.
I plan to increase the number of nodes in Brazil in the future and extend to Uruguay and Colombia. My vision is to see IC nodes all over the world, and it would be a privilege to be the first node provider in South America.

My self-declaration documents, the Company Certificate, and my Proof of Identity are uploaded to the Internet Computer Wiki under NODAL CAPITAL.

Note: My post and the .pdf files uploaded to the website are still under review by the moderation team. I will attach some screenshots; maybe they will be useful.

Could someone kindly tell me if it is necessary to wait for the review of the publication of the documents on the wiki.internetcomputer.org before submitting the proposal for voting?

Should you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am grateful for your support and votes in favor of accepting my proposal!

It’s a pleasure to be part of the IC community.

Hi community,
I’ve submitted a Node Provider Proposal under Nodal Capital, starting with 6 nodes in Brazil and plans for expansion.
See my full proposal at the link below and vote to support!

I kindly ask for your votes in favor of approving. Please consider approving the Nodal Capital Node Provider.
Feel free to ask any questions below.
Thank you!

Hi all, I need to update the node operator record. I want to relocate my node from Espacio Rack to IPCore Datacenter because Espacio Rack DC cannot provide me with IPv6. The link.

Hi @gaelchloe, thanks for submitting the NP proposal. Please note that currently, the IC has reached target topology, see this forum post. It means that no new node machines will be accepted to the IC network for the time being. Once the subnets are reaching capacity and more subnets are required to run all applications, the community can decide to increase the target topology again and allow additional node machines to the network.

So for now, it is not possible to onboard any new node machines unless these machines were already bought before the 1st December when the target topology and optimization tooling was approved by the community. You can already submit your node proposal proposal so you are prepared to submit a data center proposal and node operator proposal once it is decided that more nodes machines are allowed.

Thank you for the update and clarification. I understand that currently no new node machine will be accepted on the IC network. I will keep an eye on new decisions in the Forum about the addition of new node machines to the network.
