Why do you want to be a node? Very interested in the project and what the community is doing. The XX opportunity is limitless and would love to be apart of the team moving forward.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Telegram
  • Facebook
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? It’s potential as the future of crypto.
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:
    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. Medium review of on going node operational process
    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
    • 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 contribute to a promising project
    • Other (please specify): To protect others from poor management of assets and capital by governments and banks, alternative forms of safe, firm investment
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralized networks essentially operate in a more private, authoritative manner and influence functions independently within the network, whereas distributed networks are extremely dependent upon one another in order for the network to function properly (one action effects entire platform; there are no nodes more unique than others) Personally, I much prefer a decentralized platform as it protects freedom and potential of each individual to do well within the system. However, both have their fare share of pros and cons.
    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. Xx network aims to solve problems that other networks cannot, and provides a unique opportunity that others currently do not.
    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? Everything is essentially controlled by government now with an iron fist, and we have no say. I believe individuals should be able to operate safely and securely a node where they can help build a better life for themselves, as well as build a better future for the network that has such great potential.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I do not have sufficient information on quantum computers to answer this other than security issues, which from what I have researched, XXnetwork is dealing with.

    Very good application. Please specify what HW you intend to use if selected to run a node.
