    Why do you want to be a node? am passionate about the elixxir prospects and would like to contribute to its development
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • BetaNet Forum
    Are you an active member of those communities? No
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The ability to handle transactions fast and anonymous. Am planning to eventually build a payments platform and am curious of how to integrate xx technology it its operations: for payments, asset tracking and contracts
    Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?
    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. would aim to document the nodes operations in medium, hopefully would write an article every 2 months
      Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? Yes
      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? the difference is in 'control', in distributed networks the control still stays with one party but due to being distributed, the control is performed more efficiently, scalable and resilient, whereas in decentralized network each party can function as a standalone unit
      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. it can run transactions with unprecedented privacy, security, speed, and low cost. Although existing networks provide some of these features but none provides all of them simultaneously
      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? in this day and age, governments are increasing their attempts and controlling citizens' communication; companies exploit the users data for their commercial goals often to the detriment of the users. This leads to continuous errorsion of privacy.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? in simple terms: quantum computers could compromise a single node in a decentralized system, which limits the damage, whereas if it compromises a centralized system, all nodes are affected and the whole system can no longer be trusted

      Bandwith can be a problem longterm, if mainnet will req. higher speeds

      I agree with Eyez. Bandwidth is the only red flag I can see. Can you upgrade your service? If so you have my support.

      Won’t work without a higher bandwidth

      Have to have higher bandwidth.

      If you can have a higher bandwidth, then I can support this application

      Please upgrade and let us know. Thanks
