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), hetzner, vultr
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? No
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:
Why do you want to be a node? to be part of the great project from the beginning
How did you originally hear about the xx network? xx collective
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? Discord
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The opportunity to participate in the project from the beginning
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Solana

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:
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. Depends on scope of work
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
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A distributed network is a network with multiple components typically maintained by one entity or by a small number of entities affiliated with each other. Decentralized, on the other hand, implies that the network is more open to participation

Fast transaction speed, scalability, quantum secure, metadata shreddimg, privacy, messaging, decentralized, open source
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? People should have the right to their confidentiality
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Nothing would be secure from them without a system that can counter and keep our information private and safe

Good answers! My vote!

Great experience, I think he has a good experience

My specs:
AX61 (Hetzner), AMD Ryzen 9 3900 12-Core, 128Gb DDR4 ECC, 2x1.92 TB NVMe SSD

does not meet the minimum HW specs… voting no

Without the GPU that is required in the minimum spec I will have to vote ‘No’ as well.

voting no, missing GPU

Note that CPU-only nodes running in over-represented datacenters (such as Hetzner) are now being disabled and asked to make changes to continue operating, see here.

Could you please reconsider and confirm that you will run a node with the required GPU?
If you don’t reply or are unable to run a GPU then I would vote “No”.

yes, i confirm it

Thanks to the team for all the comments.
I decided to organize a home server with suitable requirements.
Name of my ISP: Beeline


Voted yes
