What kind of improvements would you like to see in Elixxir nodes vs. previous the previous nodes you have supported? good linux compatible node application/packages
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an Elixxir node? high hardware requirements
What is a reasonable maximum connection speed on which you could operate a BetaNet node in your geographic region? (Where 0 = 10 Megabits/second, and 100 = 10 Gigabits/second) 50
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? (As a percentage) 99
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. . 0.116955 €/kWh
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator? (Where 0 = 1 hour/month, and 100 = 20 hours/month) 90
If you were selected to run a BetaNet node, would it run on your own hardware or be deployed to cloud-based servers? Cloud-Based Servers
In what type of environment would this server be located?
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter?
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published Elixxir BetaNet node specifications?
Yes (Please list specs)
Do you have hardware you would like to use but does not meet the stated BetaNet node specs? If so, please provide specs on that hardware below:
Do you have past experience deploying servers to cloud-based services? Yes (please specify)
Yes (please specify) for my previous nodes I've been deployed some servers on Amazon and Digital Ocean platforms
Why do you want to be a node? I would like to be one of the first Elixxir pioneers, I think is a good way to help to the project to grow up and at the same time I could have some benefits in the future
How did you originally hear about Elixxir? Telegram
Which current Elixxir communities are you a member of? Telegram, Reddit, Medium, Twitter
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the Elixxir platform? So I think David as one of the crypto fathers could build new great blockchain platform, it will push the blockchain world to one more step to decentralizing and make information and/or values more transparent an one side and secure and rustable on the other side
Outside of Elixxir communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? NKN, QuarkChain
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? No, unfortunately, but I would like to participate in Berlin Blockchain Conference this year
As part of growing the Elixxir community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an Elixxir BetaNet node? Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. No
If yes, how much content on a monthly basis?
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? So, in generally distributed networks are the networks which are located in the different locations and this can provide to the system stable work, at the same time decentralized networks are networks which don't have one center of control and its governance is carried out by different levels, points and geographically located endpoints. I think I could be one of the distributed point in the Europe
As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the Elixxir platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions. Elixxir would be speed and private scalable blockchain with hash-based ownership mechanism and its own The Elixxir protocol that based on using various of teams of nodes and has a distributed ledger to achieve to make and support confidential blockchain
Privacy by Default is a goal of the Elixxir Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? Nowadays when all your data is managed by IT giants like Alphabet, Facebook, etc., we can never be calm that our data will be stolen, photos, keys, documents, moneys. It's a quite comfortable to have your data stored in one "secure" place, but it's big mistake, deceptive opinion that our data is in reliable hands, there is still one (or some one) datacentre from where information can be stoled (or used by custodians without permission), so privacy should one of the main things persons will need and ask to the future blockchain leader companies
