Creators and Node Operators: Where do you fit?

Figuring out what role is best for you on the Render Network
Render Network's system can be broken down into 2 main roles: Creators and Node Operators. Here's a handy guide to figure out where you might fit in on the Render Network:
Node Operators
Whether you're a graphics artist, mechanical engineer, AR/VR/XR visionary, architect or studio modeler, if you make digital visuals, you're a Creator.
Creators are those whose vision is only limited by the power at their disposal, which is where Render Network provides a solution. Through the Render Network, Creators can tap into GPU power beyond their doorstep, rendering final images at higher speeds and lower costs than previously available.

Maybe you're a hardware enthusiast with GPUs to spare, or maybe you're a cryptocurrency guru with a passing interest in VFX. If you've got GPUs that are sitting idle at any time, you're a potential Node Operator who can use that GPU downtime to earn RNDR.
Node Operators register their GPUs to the Render Network to be "rented out" by Creators in need of additional power, and get paid RNDR tokens for time spent rendering.
