|What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported?||Not tested xx nodes, can't answer atm|
|What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node?||Nothing|
|What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node?||99|
|Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running.||0.0785 euros per 1 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?`||50|
|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), 3+ years experience with deploying crypto related services. From bitcoin full node, mining pools to hogh-performance validators (like TON, NEAR) with servers stats and alert with my personal bots.|
|Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)?||Yes (Please list specs)|
|Specs||atm I've few servers, but all of them are w/o gpu, if gpu is a mandatory, I can upgrade. Best one is on AMD Ryzen9 3900x with 64gb ram and 540k+ iops nvme|
|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:||I've different servers and vps's, so it depends on current node and network load and can be adjust easilly.|
|Why do you want to be a node?||Crypto is my passion and I'm a full-time node operator atm already, so want to increase my experience and support new projects.|
|How did you originally hear about the xx network?||Telegram|
|Which current xx network communities are you a member of?||Telegram, Discord|
|What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform?||I want to deep in new projects to know them better, so can't make a clear asnwer atm|
|Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?||Nodes - TON, NEAR, CODA, STAFI, PHALA, DFINANCE,SENT|
|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:||Community Management Other: No, I'm personally more techincal.|
|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.||I can create some readme about nodes, server stats, alerts and other useful things for nodes. But not much.|
|Why do you want to run a node in the xx network?||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?||I'm a full-time all-in crypto passinate.|
|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.||Privacy for sure, as a human right.|
|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?||It's a human right to keep his personal information save and outside mega corps.|
|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||They are not a threat, there will always be more advanced encryption technologies when new technologies appear, so they only encourage the development of cryptographic encryption.|
If you upgrade one of your servers to a RTX 2070 GPU you have my ok…
I’m confused, is this for an individual or a network team?
is it matter? atm I’m the only who work on xx.
My final HW setup for XX network is:
CPU: Ryzen 9 3900
RAM: 64GB DDR4 3600Mhz
NVME: 1TB AORUS NVMe Pci-e 4.0 750k/700k Random R/W IOPS
GPU: Palit RTX 2070 Super
Server is ready and will be installed to it’s final location in a next few days.
Node is finally online, co-located in small data-center in Moscow, in the heart of Russian internet - Kurchatov Institute, directly on MSK-IX.
Did you deploy the graphics card now? I’m asking, because your stats are not very good right now and suggest that your server either runs without a GPU or that there is something wrong with your configuration.
server is with 2070 super, there were issue with drivers, fixed already.
