Big Cardano fan and I have a random question and thought this would be the place to ask it. I looked into making a stake pool but I don’t think I could get enough staked to make it really functional / worth others time. From what I understand you need a fair amount to be staked, but I could be wrong. I’m still a bit new. Could I simply donate processing power to the network without setting up a stake pool? (I ran miners for years but this is my first time looking into nodes)
I have an old Dell tower and a bunch of laptops sitting around. I could simply switch them to Ubuntu and hook them up to the network but I’m not sure if that is even helpful to the network / worth the time without a stake pool attached. Any thoughts or ideas on how I could donate this small amount of processing power to the network would be much appreciated!
