Why do you want to be a node? I would like to participate in the growth of the xx network. Being part of the cutting edge in privacy and blockchain technology is something that is very exciting to me.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Bitcointalk
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? Twitter, Telegram, Discord
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The privacy aspect of the network (along with the high TPS) is the most interesting part.

Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Blockchain Life 2018
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 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 undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Distribution refers to shared processing across multiple systems, locations or nodes. The control across a distributed network can still be centrally exercised. In a decentralised network, however, every node is in control of it's own "universe" and decides independently. The behaviour of the overall network is a sum of all the individual nodes.
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. To the best of my knowledge, the xx network platform will offer greater privacy and greater security than possibly any other blockchain solution currently available.
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? Only a privacy by default network can provide the privacy required to protect the network from analysis.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers threaten essentially all forms of current cryptography, in centralized but encrypted clouds or in decentralized systems which require strong crypto to survive.

Would you be able to upgrade the connection speed to meet those in the Revised BetaNet Node Hardware Requirements.
I also assume you’d be sourcing the hardware to meet the specs above too?

I trust those who bought XX coins!
