I started reaching out to influencers in the privacy community and I know how much concern they have against non open-source stuff. They really like the idea of decentralization through home-run nodes, but totally against unknown commercial devices. Is it possible to publish the pNode as an open-source hardware?
A pNode is just a standalone version of a vNode. If wanted anyone can market their own pNode.
There is already some conversation on this topic here here
The foundation is giving away free nodes to influencers, but We cannot contact privacy advocates with a gift which could be malicious hardware, or they just simply not allowed to know what is inside.
I know this is not interesting to average crypto users, but if we want to see a wider adoption in the privacy community as well, the hardware must be open-source, just like Incognito.
I like how fast this decision was.
