Hardware requirements of running a Witnet node

Witnet mining uses a probabilistic BFT-alike consensus algorithm — long story short: no Proof-of-Work is needed. In addition, witnet-rust is written in Rust, one of the most performant and secure programming languages. When compiled, the resulting binary is tailored to each specific platform, which guarantees near-zero overhead.

The hardware requirements for running a full node are thus incredibly low. Obviously, the more resources you spare when provisioning your machine, the better it will perform and the better it will stand the test of time.

This is a quick checklist on what to look for:
