Why do you want to be a node?
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? Telegram, Facebook
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Super fast transactions, high volume, privacy and resistance to quantum computing. These properties make it perfect for a wide adaptation.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Not really.
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: Instructional video content: Yes, Forum management for Bitcointalk: No, Forum management for Reddit: No, Forum management for Discord: No, Other forum management: Private forum, Meetup group management: No
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. A few tutorials a month
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 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 help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy, Privacy in general
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Distributed means many different nodes and decentralized means nodes are operating individual and are owned by many different individuals. This way nobody is in control and the system is democratic. I think that is very important to guarantee privacy and prevent manipulation.
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. Decentralization, high privacy and resistant to quantum computing. And able to process high volumes of transactions very fast.
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 means true freedom and trust in a system because you can depend on it without fear of manipulation or involvement of government or corporations.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Many existing systems rely on digital signatures and cryptography to protect transactions. Quantum computing threatens this because it is able to compute possible outcomes at an unprecedented speed. Making it possible to break digital signatures.

Looks good to me :+1:


Thanks! Would be great to be an active part of this, after joining the initial coin sale.

I’ve built an Ethereum mining rig a couple of years back which was really fun. Loved this blog post which seems like an affordable option for running a server in a data center:

But for now, my home setup will do. :slight_smile:


Looks good to me as well.
