A total of 130,000 nodes run by 48,000 individual IP addresses spanning 85 different countries participated in the three Brubeck Testnet rounds, making it one of the largest P2P Testnets in computing history. With so many nodes, there was bound to be an interesting variety of setups, which is why we launched a contest to find them―and you didn’t disappoint!
Below are our favourites from each category. Thank you to all who participated!
Worst-looking (but still functioning) node
Node running on oldest hardware
Most green node
Node in the most unexpected location
Best node name
Thank you to everyone who entered. It was great to see all of your varied Testnet node setups. The winners have been contacted to receive their prize. We hope to run similar contests in the future after the launch of the Brubeck mainnet, scheduled for later this year. Join the Streamr community in Discord to follow the latest updates.
