|Are you an individual or a group?||Individual|
|Node City||Saint Petersburg|
|For which networks Have you ever operated a node?||Ethereum (ETH, ETC, etc), Solana, Bluzelle, Regen etc.|
|What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported?||I like to see more fast and protected from the attacks blockchain|
|What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node?|
|What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node?||100|
|Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running.||29 cents|
|On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?`||100|
|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), I have runned nodes at the linux server with ubuntu before.|
|Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)?||Yes (Please list specs)|
|Specs||Ryzen 9 3900x CPU, 128 GB RAM, 2x1 TB NVMe, GeForce RTX 2060|
|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?||Want to invest in good project and earn rewards|
|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 know how xx network will protect privacy|
|Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?||I'm patricipant of cryptocommuties of other blockchains|
|Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)?|
|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 earn xx coins, To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world, To contribute to a promising project, 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?||The decentralized network are haven't any main nodes, distributed nodes are not depend on the other one and can perform the actions without others nodes.|
|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.||xx network platform is designed to protect privacy and using a quantum-safe algoritm to secure the data|
|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?||A privacy should be critical in the internet, today corporations and the world shadow governments are collecting data and dossier, no one could be trully anonimous and it must be stopped.|
|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||A privacy should be critical in the internet, today corporations and the world shadow governments are collecting data and dossier, no one could be trully anonimous and it must be stopped.|
So I think it is best to clarify on discord https://discord.gg/Y8pCkbK if 2060 is ok to run a node.
@Leo To quote the post you’re mentioning …
Before I get into too much detail, it is really important that everyone understand the hardware I’m using is not a final recommendation . Much testing needs to be done and some components may not meet the final requirements. So with that said, NONE OF THE FOLLOWING IS RECOMMENDED HARDWARE .
And the specifications were revised in the other post you mentioned. Final specs are in the Beta Node Handbook
Discord has a very short memory.
The requirements clearly state that the GPU has to be at least Nvidia Turing, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070. So, unless the configuration is upgraded, I cannot support this application.
You must meet the HW requirements in order to get my vote.
