For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Other (please specify): Swarm, Spacemesh, Solana, Mina protocol
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? Pay more attention to the experiences of network members, conduct surveys to better and faster correct bugs.
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? Now any setbacks. But if they arise, I can deal with them.
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 500
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 400
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 95
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. The cost is 0.7 USD, so I will pay 37 USD per month
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 80
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). Pautina
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. isn't located
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)? I9 9900k, Z390 chipset, RTX2070, DDR4 64GB, Samsung 980 PRO 1TB NVMe
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: No
Why do you want to be a node? For me, being a node means being a full part of a project. Nodes are the backbone of the whole network. Obviously, it's good to have some kind of community activity, but I think the technical part still comes first.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Influencer Vlog
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? I think it’s cMix technology. I would like to understand more about it.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Swarm, Spacemesh, Solana, Mina protocol
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. 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
    • 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 promote quantum secure distributed systems
    • To earn xx coins
    • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
    • 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? Distributed networks are in a way, a conglomeration of small centralized networks. It consists of multiple Nodes which themselves are miniature versions of centralized networks. Decentralized networks consist of individual nodes and every one of these Nodes are capable of independent decision making.
    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 offers privacy, full decentralization, and quantum resistance to its users. These are the basic and most essential values.
    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? All users deserve to feel safe and secure. Personal data is personal. So only we should own it, not the corporations and organizations that use it for their benefit.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I think I need to study this question better to answer it accurately. For now, I think there may be such a threat. And it seems to me that this is the only way to break into a decentralized system. I won't say anything about centralized one, you can do without quantum computers there)
