      I use Linode and Vultr right now for some of my zclassic and dash nodes. I’ve heard Digital Ocean is good also.

        Thanks for your reply, so you confirm they allow mining ? Have you heard of Time4VPS ?

          no, I don’t mine on vps. I run them as nodes. I’ve never heard of Time4VPS

            Alright, make sense to run just a node on a VPS, less CPU intensive. Thank for your fast reply.

    It seems 4GB is needed to run a node. Is that right ? In that case how do you get a 10$/month figure with either Linode, Digital Ocean or Vultr ?

    Are you using swapping ? It that still efficient enought to run a node ?
    Thank you for your help.

        How much zen rewards do you make with your set up in Linode?

          well, none yet. The secure nodes are not enabled yet for Zen. But 3.5% of mining rewards will be allocated among all secure nodes when they are going.

    […] https://blockoperations.com/three-ways-make-money-zen-secure-currency/ A second way to earn Zen, which is slightly more difficult, is to run a Zen node. This involves operating a virtual private server (VPS) and running the Zen node software. Because Zen is going to be optimized for encryption and security and resiliency I would recommend staying away from putting your VPS on a Raspberry Pi or similar device and instead go rent an actual VPS at a hosting provider. You should be able to find one that meets your specifications for $10/month. […]

    I’m running 10 Zen nodes on VPS hosted on http://www.cyberhour.com
    What I like with them is that they are using latest XEON CPUs , coming with fast bandwidth and 500GBPS DDOS protection.
