They could make the mNode more user-friendly. Now you need to configure and add nodes by CLI and it’s not really easy to manage. If they created a web interface to do the management of the mNode, that would be great!.This solution would be improved if it were made to be more compatible with other products.I think there is room for improvement needed with its storage capability. A bigger node is needed.
