should we be encouraging masternode hosting services or not?

    Hey guys.

    I use masternodecould.com for a few of my nodes and also self host 1 on a VPS. I use a masternode hosting service because it is super easy and cost effective.

    I am wondering if this is going to turn out to be a problem for us if many MN's are hosted using these services. eg. node40, masternodecloud etc. (Im guilty here as well! )

    im speaking about the centralisation issue. I wonder if we should be working on a dash masternode image file anyone can spin up on any VPS or home machine to run the daemon. I have set up a MN on my own VPS using Taos guide. ( very helpful tao thank you !) but there is still a reasonability high entry point for many people. and once your node is set up the upgrades etc are a bit of a mission.

    Its just a suggestion but im wondering if we were to spend a bit of time trying to make a custom distro that simplifies the masternode setup process. it would definitely help distribute mn nodes.

    what do you guys think? is this an issue?
