New Monero node launching web service - XMR Node Cannon
I built a web service that allows you to send XMR to fund public seed and RPC Monero nodes:
It uses the Digital Ocean infrastructure (droplets) to power the node and some simple shell scripts to get them configured; uses my [docker-monero-node](https://github.com/lalanza808/docker-monero-node) project under the hood. You can connect to a frontend dashboard to see the blockchain stats/metrics.
I plan to open source this with instructions so that others may run their own. This could be a good alternative to earn XMR rather than buying it outright; pay for the compute and if others trust you enough, earn XMR to manage a node with their name on it. This is still in heavy development, so any feedback provided will help.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
