Multiple Tribler instances

Hi, new to the forum, been using Tribler for about three months.

It can be very hard for people in punitive jurisdictions to earn tokens. Hypothetically, there are ways around that. For example, there are server hosting companies in locations that are less reactionary.

So, hypothetically, you could rent a cheap virtual server and run a Tribler exit node, but the question then is how you get that credit on your home node? Do you run the same identity? Is it as simple as copying the .pem files? Or is the only option to download to the virtual machine and then SFTP it home?
