Specs Ryzen 7 2700X, 16 GB RAM (can up to 32 if necessary), RTX 2070 Super, 1 TB Samsung 970 Pro 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:
Why do you want to be a node? This is a new, interesting project. I support privacy and independence + reward
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Reddit
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? BetaNet Forum
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? We need more privacy and security, I believe in David Chaum
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? No
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? No

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, To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? In distributed systems, each node makes its own decision. The final behavior of the system is the set of decisions of the individual nodes. There is no single entity that receives a request and responds to it.
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. Greater safety, high performance, quantum secure
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? Online privacy has opened up new opportunities for life and self-expression. Most governments are seeking way to take control of the Internet through de-anonymization. For example, in Russia, they are seriously discussing the introduction of a ban on the use of promising encryption protocols. It annoys and scares me!
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers (when created) threaten existing encryption algorithms and the security of centralized systems, which undermines the foundations of existing Internet privacy
