What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an Elixxir node? Cost vs roi for long term operation
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) 100

Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. . 1c per 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) 53
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? Datacenter
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? Yes (please describe)
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published Elixxir BetaNet node specifications? No
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) Aws, Azure, Google cloud
Why do you want to be a node? Interested in Elixir project and looking to help its adoption
How did you originally hear about Elixxir? Word of Mouth
Which current Elixxir communities are you a member of? Telegram, Discord, Medium
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the Elixxir platform? I like the functional language aspect and that it allows writing stable smart contracts
Outside of Elixxir communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Wings, Idex, Orbs, Beam
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Yes, too many of them, including devcon and consensus
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? Decentralized networks are the ones where you can have a trust less operation, which is not possible with plain distributed ones. We strong believers in decentralization, and Wings was designed to be 100% decentralized.
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. From what I followed, Elixir enables building real world applications thanks to it functional language, scalability, OTP and true randomness
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? Because the one who owns the data, owns the power, and the power should return back to the people
