Should I forward port 8444 to reach 60 max peer connections?

Hello guys,

I’m starting to make plots and setting up everything, i haven’t opened the 8444 port cause it isnt safe for the network im doing it in, yet i sync relatively fast (like 1-2 min) after a reboot, and i’m connected to arround 10 full nodes in the peer section.

Is that fair enough or should i aim to forward the 8444 port to be able to reach the 60 max connections ?

Will that affect my chances of earning a coin?

Thanks in advance!

If you are syncing ok you should be fine! Forwarding the port just makes syncing much faster. It is not required.
