So you need 4212 Loki appox to setup a node, min. and upto 3 other contributors can fill the rest to activate the node. And all share the rewards. The Op can setup a fee like 10~15% of fee.. to cover VPS costs etc.
Is there a way to turn off lokinet hops to improve latency? right now i'm using lokinet to SSH into a raspberrypi thats behind a router at home. i find this useful... but i know there is latency issues vs clearnet... i dont really care for the anonymization but like to use lokinet to access boxes behind a firewall.
