In keeping with the timeline we laid out in January, today we are publishing an initial selection of node applications for the Elixxir BetaNet, for public review and feedback. This is “Step 5” of the selection process.
This is not an authoritative list
This list is a “rough draft” of applicants we believe are strong candidates to run nodes on the BetaNet, although applications on this list are not guaranteed a slot in the BetaNet; Elixxir will announce the final list on June 21st. And some node applications not on this list will likely be added to the final list.
How should the Elixxir community respond to this list?
We want your feedback! Review this initial selection list, and post your comments and suggestions. If a worthy application is missing from the list, make your voice heard in the Forum to bring it to the community’s attention.
The Elixxir team will continue to closely monitor your feedback in the Node Forum up to the announcement of the final list of BetaNet nodes on June 21st. And big thanks to everyone who has already offered their time and attention.
Glad to see this list. Thank You! Very exciting to see the future taking formation. Feels a little like Christmas morning, lol.
Here’s a blog post that gives some context into the selection criteria we used for this list: https://elixxir.io/blog/initial-list-of-betanet-nodes-published
I am excited to see my application on this list! As always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions directly or check out my application, which you can find in the activity section of my profile.
Same here. I don’t like to self-promote my application, so the only thing that I’ll add without a direct question is that I’m also involved with one of the oldest crypto exchanges. It’s not so relevant for the betanet selection process, but it might be useful later.
Fair list. I am very pleased to be present.
Here to show my support of all applicants
Great selection! I’m also pleased to be a part of it Looking forward to the remaining selection process.
Nice List , Pls add asian part of Russia - Vladivostok or Khabarovsk
Proud to be part of the community and ready for hard work.
Feels great to be part of this community.
Proud to represent MI.
Proud and very happy to be shortlisted. I hope to go as far as I can with the Elixxir team and with all of us who can collaborate and be part of such an important project.
Hi Peter, how can I appellate the list of betanet applicants? I want to be a part of it.
How were the geographic bins delineated? Having one for just Western USA and Canada, whilst another covers the whole of Africa + Western Europe seems like it could be imbalanced.
Hopefully, you can consider another node for South East Asia in Malaysia
I am really surprised none of the Nordic countries made the list
Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark where are you?
According to all the rating agencies, the above countries are the wealthiest, happiest and longest living but …they don’t know about Elixxir?
These countries breath conservatism and security (remember Nokia, Volvo, IKEA … anyone?).
What am I missing here?
