Wooooaaaah man that’s a can of worms there.
There’s a difference between “one farmer” and “one vault”
IMO if one farmer has 15 smaller vaults in order to maximize his profit, that’s just good vault administration. Running one petabyte vault would be stupid and not return much profit.
I’m getting a VPS for personal reasons with Gbit ethernet and will be running a vault (or vaults) in the free space once the community has access to the Network to run vaults.
As for what “will matter most”…well let’s do ourselves a favor and list what certainly won’t matter most:
RAM, HDD space/retrieval speed, and bandwidth speed/cap all factor into the equation quite heavily.
If you look at what I just said from a certain point of view, you’ll see that industry growth in size and speed are all in the areas that I said matter, while processor speed growth seems to have stagnated. This is good as the network will continue to be accessible to many - unlike bitcoin mining.
Welcome! Enjoy the ride. If you thought bitcoin was a roller coaster…
