    Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
    • 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 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? Difference refers to differences in location, where parts of the system exist in different locations. As a user or operator, I can be a link in this network.
    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. At the moment I have to find out, so far I am familiar with xx superficially and I can say that privacy plays an important role.
    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? Because the freedom of a person ends where the freedom of another begins. This expression can be interpolated to any processes and systems that affect society. In our world, any value is expressed through money, this also applies to a person. Therefore, any restriction in the field of personal finance is regarded as an encroachment on human freedom. XX brings us closer to the moment of true freedom.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? At the moment, this problem is more philosophical. And when the time comes to worry about old technologies, they will already be replaced by developing technologies based on new physical principles.

    Can you confirm that you can meet the GPU requirement?
    If so, then you have my support.

    Hello, in what form you want to get it?

    I am currently using the Ryzen 5 3400G because I am in the process of assembling the right components.
    Planned configuration: Ryzen 9 5000 series and RTX 2070 graphics or higher.
    I think by the middle of the month I’ll have everything I need.

    Take my voice :+1:t2:. Dont forget ssd.

    Why you assemble a node if your statement is a datacenter?
    Im seeing the same structure in other 20 applications

    The datacenter provides a stable uptime, so I try to keep all the servers there.
    But since my current server does not meet the minimum requirements, I decided that I needed to purchase a more powerful one. If the communication channel is stable, I will leave it at home, otherwise I will place it in the data center as well.

    I can’t say anything about the other 20 :slight_smile:
    If it is necessary to keep the node at home, then this is not a problem for me.

    The motherboard was delivered yesterday, I expect other components.

    how is the bild going?

    The 5000 series processors have not yet appeared in our sales, so I’m waiting.
    I choose and order the rest of the complete set.
    Within a couple of days I will add photos :slight_smile:

    New addition :slight_smile:
    Power supply and RAM should be delivered soon. I will buy the processor as soon as it appears, but as a last resort I will take something from the 3000 series.
    The video card will be the last to buy because I still hope the 3070 will fit.

    has my vote, nice one
