– So what we are seeing here
are the first three prototypes and nodes of the Cardano on the Rocks, running on the Linux
system, operating system. And the Jormungandr and
Cardano network on top of it. We created project files that everyone can 3D
print these enclosures. In terms of energy costs, these devices are very energy efficient. And so the cost per year is less than $30. At the moment we see here
three devices connected with just around, a little
bit less than 12 watts. So one node consumes four watts. And this allows you to run
these nodes 24 hours a day. This allows the whole device to run with the passive cooling only. So it’s a passive cooling on the bottom. And no moving parts. For the device itself,
there’s a ARM-based CPU, a six core CPU, a four gigabyte of RAM. And it allows, not only
the little SD cards that are a little bit unstable when they should run over a long time, but we can also use the
so-called, eMMC cards, or even NVME modules for the
storage of the blockchain and the operating system itself. The device itself can be ordered
on different online stores in China, in Europe, in America. It requires a little bit of experience to assemble it together. But the published guidelines with the step-by-step
descriptions should help that everyone who wants can create his own little Cardano on
the Rocks stake pool node.
