What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? Fast TPS, fast support, excellent Node software, low Node hardware requirement
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? Low quality software for Node. If the software is of good quality and there is good documentation, the community can solve everything

Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 0.0473 USD
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
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). DOMRU, Megafone, Rostelecom
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. WebDC Moscow, OVH
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? Yes, experience in server deployment, software, remote administration. I had a lot of experience with FreeTon, Solana. I installed my servers when I worked as an encryption engineer
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Now i have at home server too, and Server on my DC too. 16 cores, 128 RAM, 1 TB NVME drives
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? It is mine! I am an engineer and more I like to work where I understand what I do and what I control. This is the future. Blockchain is the future. I want to process payments, monitor servers and help for decentralization
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Telegram
  • Discord
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? future of blockchain
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? SOLANA, FREETON, SOTA, NFT
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? REALTIME CONFERENCE AND AMA SOLANA, FREETON
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. 2
    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 the privacy of political speech
    • To protect private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations
    • To earn xx coins
    • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
    • To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A distributed system is when there is middleware A plus: resource sharing scalability high availability. A decentralized system is when each party makes local autonomous decisions regarding their individual goals
    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. 10000TPS very very fast decentralized and has an Elixxir privacy mix.
    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? Many companies cash in on user data and sell it. Governments can easily figure out the opposition user from the tags, the corrupt authorities can find the person thanks to the tags. Children suffer, whose habits are already being collected in a large database for identification, Any money transfer is controlled thanks to tags, and this is very dangerous
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers can only in theory interfere with decentralized systems. Decentralized systems can quickly adapt to a threat. Centralized systems are initially vulnerable and easily attacked, but this is also still a theory. Yes, the encryption keys of the master will be easier to damage than a system that can accept tasks without the master. The node that is attacked can be quickly excluded and the system will continue to work, and the centralized one in this case will be paralyzed

    I will be glad to help for with my node. I have a good fiber-optic internet, LINUX knowledge, top hardware. Vote for me. Peace and kindness to everyone

    Could you please specify the complete hardware specs for the node in datacenter including type of GPU. Thanks.


    I would like to hear that also.

    Good day! Your work background looks good, but could you please explain what kind of hardware exactly you plan to use in the end (and at home or in the DC?) And especially the GPU, since does successful validation depend a lot on it? After that I will be ready to support you.

    yes. of couse i have GPU. GIGABYTE nVidia GeForce RTX 2070. I think enough for server. low consumption and good performance.

    Hello. Yes, maybe not everything was said in promo. I have a server that is located at the telecom operator and a home station with 1 gigabit Internet channel too. GPU on board.

    Hello. Of course I have CUDA kernels. Thank you for your questions.

    Ok, this enough. You have my vote, thank you for fast answers. Hopefully, you will also be quick to respond to potential issues when they do occur. :+1: :pray:
