    Hello, Ozlem!

    I apologies for the lack of answers in my application from beginning. I would like to run a node in the xx network BetaNet. Please look to my answers below:

    1. In a decentralized networks, there are no authority that governs and handles the network. Control stays with the users itself. In a distributed system, all parties of network are located in different physical locations, but the processing is spread across multiple nodes, but decision-making can be centralized.
    2. I think xx network has the three main advantages - privacy (cMixer), security and scaling (quantum-secure consensus algorithm - xxBFT).
    3. At this moment we faced with lack of privacy in digital world, all information could be compromise by the centralized system/networks without permission of users such systems. The privacy of a sensitive information is critical for our future.
    4. If it happens, Owners of quantum computers could easy take control of the centralized systems, and dictated new rules of game for a society. I don’t mean some conspiracy theories, only aspects of the technological ability. There is one of reason that I like xx network, and want support from earlier stages of project.

    I appreciate if you find my application matching requirements.
    Look forward of your vote.

    With a home installation and the latest update on the answers I am happy to add my support.
    I don’t think you will need the 80GB RAM at this point through. I think 32GB was the high RAM recommendation :+1:
