Hardware requirements of running a Witnet node

Witnet mining uses a probabilistic BFT-alike consensus algorithm, so no Proof-of-Work is necessary. In addition, witnet-rust is written in Rust, one of the most performance-focussed and secure programming languages available. 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 therefore incredibly low. Obviously, the more resources you spare when provisioning your machine, the better it will perform and the less likely you are to face problems.

This is a quick checklist on what to look for:
