    Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? DDR4 RAM, HDD, GHz, Intel i7 Processor, etc.
    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:
    Why do you want to be a node? I have heard, as well as researched, that xxcoins are the next biggest crypto coming up, and would absolutely love to join the xxnetwork and see it for myself.
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
      Are you an active member of those communities? No
      What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Difficult to say specifically, as I am interested in many aspects
      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:

        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 contribute to a promising project
        • Other (please specify): To be a part of the next big thing
        What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralized means nodes operate alone and do not influence each other, distributes means they operate connectedly. As a person who values individuality and independence greatly, I prefer a decentralized system.
        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. Xxnetwork brings a fresh outlook to the concepts of privacy, security, quantum, and secure payment.
        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? Privacy is our right no matter where you operate. If we cannot operate these networks without our freedom of privacy intact, then the network itself is compromised and therefore useless.
        In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? The biggest threat that quantum computers pose to block chains is breaking their encryption, but with such vast technological improvements in such encryption, I do not see the quantum threat remaining permanent. I also believe xxnetwork will ensure this as well. Same goes for centralized systems.

        Can you be more specific with the hardware.

        Whilst the rest of the application looks good the HW spec doesn’t. If that can improve then you would get my vote, but until then it would have to be a ‘No’

        please specify hardware, if specified, has my vote.

        With more info on hardware, a yes from me.

        Hi all, thrilled to have my application up. Sorry for the delayed response, i will be running Ryzen 10900 with RAM 32 GB for my potential node.
