I am not a developer, but I managed to create a DarkNode using Digital Ocean and the very easy to follow instructions. Thanks for the great support.
As I have watched the system grow and develop, I’m thinking it might be worthwhile to invest in a second (or maybe even third) DarkNode. So, while the economics of this helps me with evaluating this thought, I am not really sure about the technical side and how it would work. For example:
Will I need to create a separate Digital Ocean account and pay an additional $5 per month or can I just use the one I have and use it for two or more DarkNodes? (The cost is not really relevant here, just knowing how to proceed).
Within the REN Command Center, after I set up the second Node are all of the rewards and fees consolidated or kept separate? For example, when I transfer earnings out can I use one transfer for all BTC or will I need separate transfers for each Node? Also, will the ETH in my current account be used for both Nodes or will I need to add ETH to both Nodes? If ETH is used for both Nodes, is there any cost savings for having two compared to only one?
If I need to keep the Nodes separate, does this mean I would need to create a separate EtherWallet to link to the Node as well?
I would really appreciate any insights I can get on this and hearing about any other caveats I need to be aware of, or benefits I could derive, from having multiple Nodes.
