    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? It is innovative how works, the implementation against quantum computing attack, the speed of transaction with a efficient network and the security of the metadata
    Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? No
    Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? No
    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:
    • Other: Writing articules in linkedin about CRISP-DM and ML
    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. Yes, about my experence of the setup and troubleshooting

    • To promote quantum secure distributed systems
    • To earn xx coins
    • To contribute to a promising project
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
    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. Security over quantum computer attack, speed transaction, efficient network for the TPS capacity, low consumption of energy and privacy of the metadata.
    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? It Is crucial the privacy, nowday the companies and government are using the private information to manipulate the social opinion, track everything that we dofor their benefits. This project is a great help to maintain our security as a citizens
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Decentralized systems have a better chance of avoiding security problems in front of quantum computer systems, but the level of danger for blockchain systems currently in use depends on the development of this technology. Centralized system have more probability to have security problems with this technology

    Good application and from South America. You have my vote!

    If you meet the hardware specs you have my vote

    Of course, I 'll follow the specs and it will be better, my intention is contribute to the network in capacity and stability. So it will be the best in the crypto market.


    Thank you very much

    Hardware looks good. Good application. Bandwidth seems low. Can you obtain better speeds? If so then I’d support you.

    Yes, I 'll contract a better plan and I m choosing Movistar, because they have a node in Miami, so the latency is low has better uptime, so I 'll be success to accomplish with the uptime goal, probable better.

    Sorry, I said hardware looks good but you don’t have hardware listed. Mixed up my comment with another application. What is your hardware specs? Good that you can upgrade bandwidth!

    If I have the approval of the community, I 'll buy a:

    • CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3800X
    • RAM 32 GB
    • SSD 1 TB High speed
    • GPU 3080 10 GB GDDR 6X
    • Cooling by water
    • Gateway Intel 5, RAM 4GB, SSD 500 GB and Ethernet TG-3468 wired with CAT6 or higher
      It’s depend of the stock but this is what I want to my node.

    I realize that I did answer the question about the difference of the distributed network and the decentralize network. The decentralize network differs of the distributed in:

    • The decision making is taken in each node, it is the administrator of the node who decided the best of the node considering the consensus rules of the network.
    • The node doesn’t know the status of the entire network, but take the decision that is the best for the node, to accomplish the goal for the network.

    In distributed network there is a unique point where the decision are taken and the way that work each node.

    In my case I like the decentralize network, this is more democratic . Always there are pros and cons
