|Did you purchase xx coins in the xx coin sale?||No|
|Are you an individual or a group?||Individual|
|For which networks have you ever operated a node?||
|What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported?||Easy install and more important easy monitoring and alert system. I would like to understand if something is going south and fix it.|
|What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node?||I need time to buy the proper hardware. If i get accepted i get to it. I would still love a powerful GPU for my Deep RL experiments|
|What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide?||200mb|
|What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide?||200mb|
|What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node?||98|
|Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running.||49 Euro|
|On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?`||58|
|In what type of environment would this server be located?||Personal Home|
|If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).||Pyur|
|If your server is located in a Datacenter, please specify the name of the company hosting it. Nodes will not be allowed to run on Hetzner. If you do, you will not receive compensation.|
|Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter?||No|
|Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)?||No|
|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:||I will buy what i need|
|Why do you want to be a node?||I am interested in this project. It is a pity i came to it too late|
|How did you originally hear about the xx network?||Telegram|
|Which current xx network communities are you a member of?||
|Are you an active member of those communities?||Yes|
|What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform?||Just the word quantum computing is driving me towards the project.|
|Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?||Yes. Near Joystream Desmos Agoric I have other in ready to go|
|Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)?||Not yet|
|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|
|Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community?||No|
|Why do you want to run a node in the xx network||
|What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?||A distributed network is a network where the systems cooperate. A decentralized network is a system where the info is not owned by one but by many. I would be 1 of the many|
|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.||the fact the hashing is protected against quantum technology is very intriguing. I have to admit i would require to sit down and do the math by myself to understand but it looks super cool and definitely different|
|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?||Privacy IS important. And if u share is because you want. And if people can take what they want they can easily control u|
|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||Well normal hashing functions would be easy to break|
Happy to support
Bandwidth is good, if you know your hardware requirement, it’s okay. It’s never too late
Would like to see hardware specs. Otherwise, great application.
HW specs would be great.
Yes from me
Please answer the questions asked about the HW
@Robbie84 sorry for the delay. I did not receive notifications about my application until i was selected.
As written in the application i do not have yet the hw and i can simply buy what i need.
Strong application… the guy sounds like a brainiac! You have my approval as well!
With Hardware requirements met, a yes from me.
