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. i have a expirience of administration linux servers, so glad to help less expirienced users of community to deploy a node/ solve setup issue
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 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 network is more fault tolerance, but have a criical bug - goverment by one person/organization. decentralized network - is future of internet without this critical bug. Lets build new secure web with respect to each person confident.
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. quantum security, new vision of private and secure internet that give to us David Chaum..
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? goverment and big corporation rn take rights to decide, what to do with my private life, what i must read, what i must say, what i must buy, if my opinion is differ from their vision - immideately silenced. vision of Chaum give to us hope that we can decide what to do with our digital lives.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? quantum computers can break algorythms that not quantum resistant, so not quantum resistant crypto will be eliminated in few years IMO. also will be broken cypher algo like sha512 - cant even imagine this collaps. We must be prepared for this...

Good condidat, I support you

I like my voice

Looks good. I’m not sure that the 120GB RAM is necessary but, if it is over the recommended spec, its a personal choice :+1:


I like your application, but try to find 3070+ in the future to be future-proof :slight_smile: . You also need 120Gb SSD NVMe as per recent HW spec upgrade. Otherwise you have my vote.

Thanx for support guys! Hope that I’ll be useful for such a brilliant project…

Not bad. Has my vote

Thank you for choosing me in your initial selection! I hope that my efforts will be useful to the community and I am doing my best to help XXnetwork take its place and become the number one in the cryptographic crown. Be sure, that my node will be rock solid and stable part of the network with proper specs.

Guys, Im change the processor to AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Eight-Core Processor and my node fully meets and exceeds all other requirements of mainnet.
