Target: 5700.0 WOW ➞ 2593.61 USD
Noobs don't want to download a daemon and wait an hour for the blockchain to sync, they just want to download a wallet and forget about the creeptocurrency magic. We need a reliable network of remote nodes so that people can get started quickly without having to join IRC/Telescam to ask what "cannot reach node try again later" means.
Using the current price (which is also the all time high...) of Wownero which is currently 1 WOW = $0.06, the total is 5182 WOW. Add WFS 10% to cover volatility, bribes, etc. and it comes to 5700 WOW.
Geo-distributed remote nodes for people to connect their wallets to. One on the US west coast, one in central Europe, and another in Austr-alien-a. GeoDNS server will direct users to the nearest node so that they can have the lowest latency and fastest sync times, wow! such modern! Stupid simple for users to use, and also suitable to use as a default in any light wallet softwares.
100% to be paid after all nodes are up and running, and after any tools used for deployment (like Ansible playbooks) are posted to WowGit! so that the setup can be repeated.
i like servers
