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.

To be hones I’m a bit confused, on one hand I see 2060 mentioned in here How We Build Test Nodes but on other hand Revised BetaNet Node Hardware Requirements

So I think it is best to clarify on discord 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.
