Good day, I ask you to consider my application, I really want to be a node operator, I studied the handbook and started buying equipment. My Internet provider (https://www.flex.ru/) tariff 200 Mbps download and 200 Mbps download with the possibility of increasing the speed, if necessary, up to 1 Gbps.
The equipment that I started buying:
- Video card ASUS nVidia GeForce RTX 2070SUPER, DUAL-RTX2070S-8G-EVO, 8GB, GDDR6
- Processor AMD Ryzen 7 2700X BOX
- Motherboard ASRock A320M-HDV R4.0
- 1024 ГБ GB SSD M.2 drive Samsung 970 PRO [MZ-V7P1T0BW]
- 240 GB SSD Samsung 883 DCT [MZ-7LH240NE]
- RAM Kingston HyperX FURY Black [HX432C16FB3 / 16] 16 GB
The video card has already been purchased, all other equipment is in the process. Sorry for not answering all the questions in the questionnaire, if I answer anything here, ask. I really want to be part of the team!
Hi cosmos, if you are committed to the Hardware purchases and your bandwidth is upgraded then I would certainly give you my vote
I did find that most of the relevant questions were sufficiently answered. One thing I was wondering is whether the amount of hours per month you think you can commit would actually be 100hrs. That seems like a lot so I wanted to mention it. Was that a typo?
The main thing is to try and be active in community as best you can once you join. Have a great day!
I think that you need to run the node exclusively on new equipment, so I buy everything new. Until December 29, the server will be on 24/7. From December 29 to January 15, I will not be around, and I can only manage the server via SSH. Thank you and all the best.
Dear Cosmos, it is great that you are enthusiastic. Advice don’t buy all the hardware yet,since it is not sure that you will be selected as a node. If and when selected, please look for a other hard disk. 240gb is not sufficient.
Some important questions, which are optional, are open. Please give a bit more answers.
240 GB for the gateway, and for the 1024 GB node Samsung 970 PRO. What questions need answers?
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
Unlike distributed systems, decentralized systems do not have a middle tier responsible for delivering messages or storing them. I am for decentralization.
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.
Other blockchain networks have slow payment approval times, high energy consumption, and lack of built-in security. The xx network is the first blockchain capable of providing decentralization, speed, privacy at the same time, all with the help of quantum security technology. Instead of using PoS or PoW, xx network uses xxBFT, it is made so that people use it, and not pay for electricity, unlike the bitcoin blockchain.
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?
leading technology companies have proven that they are unwilling or unable to protect user privacy, preferring to profit from advertising.
You have my vote.
The network definitely needs nodes between Europe and Asia.
Thanks a lot, have a nice day.
You hav my vote and I like that you are engaging.
Thank you very much!
Good application. Has my vote.
thanks, i’m very happy.
