Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? Yes (please describe), Ran Feathercoin Core Node, configure it manually to fit specific set of circumstances, which proved to be a challenge as I'm new to blockchain technology. Once completed then joined a mining pool to maximize profits. It was a while ago I must admit.

Why do you want to be a node? To promote the network, market the Blockchain and be paid a passive income while maintain privacy& security for the network.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? Telegram
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Privacy
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Eos
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? No
Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience: Instructional video content: Fairly comfortable, Forum management for Reddit: Comfortable, Forum management for Discord: Comfortable, Other forum management: Comfortable, Meetup group management: Comfortable, Community Management Other: Comfortable
As part of growing the xx network community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an xx network 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. All of the above on a monthly basis.
Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? Yes
Why do you want to run a node in the xx network? To protect the privacy of political speech, To protect private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations, To promote quantum secure distributed systems, To earn xx coins, To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world, To contribute to a promising project, To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies, To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? My understanding is that a blockchain is inherently distributed ie. many parties hold copies of it but it is not inherently decentralized. Whether a blockchain is centralized or decentralized simply refers to the rights of participants on the ledger, and is therefore a question of design.
As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the xx network platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions. Xx team of nodes randomly selecting and shuffling the batch of messages using secretly arranged tubes without delay, as well as doing all the work in advance before destroying the path of the meta data, making it full distributed and quantum resistant.
Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? Privacy is a fundamental right. Protection of confidentiality is vital for the Internet for building trust, protecting sensitive meta data like, hospital records, legal interactions and information. An attack on the individual privacy also hurts the privacy for the collective. Privacy by Default. 👍
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? If any it's to far away that it is to real quantum to what hydrogen bombs are to nuclear fusion. Centralized system have a single point of failure. Not good.

Good application if applicant can meet the equipment requirements.
