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: yes, but i think i9-9900k, rtx2070 super, 32Gb RAM, m2 nvme 1Tb pro samsung 970 will be ok=)
Why do you want to be a node? New experience / quantum tech., promising project, great team.
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? alles =)
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? - may be

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? This is probably a question for beginners. I am a strong supporter of decentralization. Privacy by default (c)
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. Quantum hash mixing, node scalability (if you dont make a mistake in deployment process in main-net) I mean the node+gateway setup process for the average statistical home user with his (not always fast and best) internet connection...
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? Almost everyone in his/her life, early or late, has situations when guaranteed privacy is needed. I really hope that xx.netwrk will be able to give people in need these guarantees!
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Now we can only guess what kind of good and evil quantum computers can bring to our world... Buut we can safely assume that decentralized networks / systems will be more resistant to many types of hacks.
