Since the "scam or Legit" thread is closed i have to post in this:
Today Fluidstack updated their terms about Dedicated servers and VPS to also include VM running in your private home.
That's okay, no biggie.
The problem is this:
I am emailing with regards to your Virtual Private Server / Virtual Machine Nodes.
We are do not support VPS nodes due to provider throttling concerns.
Many VPSs get throttled after a certain amount of usage which means that we are unable to use them for our clients and you aren’t going to be able to make more money than you are paying for them.
Virtual Machines prevent the proper functioning of the node by restricting access to certain features.
Your current VPS nodes will stop working, and new nodes set up on VPSs will not work either. You will not be paid for any VPS nodes, and the balance will be removed from your account. Repeat infractions will lead to a ban.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
No warning they removed my two nodes, the data collected AND 10$ referral bonus?!
Technically this is the "scam or legit" topic, just official one. Regarding the removal of your funds and VMs from their network, it's been a "public secret" for a while now that FluidStack doesn't accept VPSes/dedicated servers due to the fact that hosts / ISPs behind them could throttle or ban connection between the system and FluidStack. In case of VMs, due to the fact that VM is not an actual machine and is pretty much the same as a VPS, it could be mistaken for a VPS and because it's a virtual machine there could be driver / software issues which prevent FluidStack from functioning, thus they're forbidden.Beside that...
What does this even mean?
