@jolan: What is the closing date for this? @jy-p: That's quite an elaborate setup. What do you consider the the minimum setup for a stake pool? 2 voting wallets on different root servers? Necessarily different physical locations? I don't quite understand what exactly you gain by separating dcrd from dcrwallet. You hide the IP of the voting wallet which makes it harder to hack and DoS the wallet server. But there is not much to gain on the wallet server anyway. Am I missing something? Do you consider such a setup necessary for a minimal stake pool? It doubles the number of necessary servers/VPSs.
