What are the community's thoughts on a service like TorServers.net but for Monero nodes?
Codewise I think I could get it up and running within a week. Users who aren't technically capable of running and maintaining their own node could sponsor a node for a monthly fee or donate to a general fund. 100% of funds would go to server fees with full transparency.
I still haven't come to a conclusion on a few points like what the monthly fee would be for node sponsors (VPS fees will vary if nodes are spread over many ASs), and whether to give node sponsors SSH access to their respective servers (I'm open to the idea but I think it'd be best not to). I would appreciate the community's input on this.
Would such a service be beneficial to the Monero network and community?
