2. Optimized transaction and block processing performance.
This is an important upgrade and in order to meet the needs of on-chain business development and block processing performance, it is recommended that the node configuration meet the following requirements:
1. CPU: 4 cores
2. Memory: 8G
3. Hard disk: 100G
Currently, the 12 CRC Supernodes in DPoS are managed by the Elastos Blockchain (Gelaxy) Team. However, according to the CRC white paper, the 12 CRC Supernodes should be operated by CR Council members. To ensure a smooth transition to a fully functional CRC, the 12 CRC Supernodes will continue to be maintained by the Gelaxy Team until the end of August 2020. After this brief period, CR council member will maintain their own nodes as they see fit.
