Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Yes (Please list specs)
Specs CPU: intel core i9 - 9900k ; GPU - Nvidia RTX 2070 Super ; SSD: nvme 1TB Samsung pro ; RAM 32Gb DDR4 ; PSU: 800 Watt
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: GTX 2080ti 8Gb
Why do you want to be a node? To protect the privacy; To protect private personal communication from mass surveillance; To promote quantum secure decentralized systems.
How did you originally hear about the xx network?
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? Telegram, Discord, BetaNet Forum
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The democratic governance based on random sample voting, the functionality and experience improvements of the system (a communications platform with a digital currency integrated and the possibility of further applications being built upon it), and the technical improvements of the network (speed, scale, privacy and security). I think this network is game-changer.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Operating experience: Dash master node
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? no, but i find this very interesting
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. 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, I trust David.
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralized networks purely peer to peer, where as distributed networks use multiple servers each servicing multiple clients. In both cases, a single central entity does not rule the entire network. I very much welcome decentralization in all its forms!
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. First of all - very strong privacy as a part of quantum secured network ; Scalability potential.
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? All people should have the right to privacy, even in our digital age. Some people do not understand this or do not want to use it, but not me .=)
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers will break down any centralized defense systems in seconds. In well thought out decentralized networks it will be much more difficult.

Good application, you have my vote…
