    Why do you want to run a node in the xx network

    • To contribute to a promising project
    • 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? decentralized systems is a system in which components work on local information to achieve goals, rather than as a result of the influence of a Central order (this concerns the locality of decisions ) distributed systems is a system where computing is distributed across components that transmit messages and coordinate their actions. Components interact with each other to achieve a common goal. (this is about communication and message passing)
    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 is a new type of platform, a secure digital sphere that allows users to share ideas and values in a secure and private way. Elixir will solve the main problems of digital currencies: low transaction speed, insufficient level of privacy and scalability.
    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? Because everyone has the right to do so. Governments and large large companies trade in data about people, I think this is illegal and immoral!
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I believe that at the moment decentralized systems are not threatened by a quantum computer, but very centralized ones!

    I support you!

    Thank you bro

    If you are thinking about to place it in a DC, then think about the following:

    A datacentre is fine but you NEED a GPU.
    If you proceed without GPU , you will not comply with the contract and thus eliminated as noderunner.

    So think twice please.

    Hello, I plan to run the node at home on my hardware and I have a GPU

    If selected and when the stats will show that you have a GPU than it’s oke.
    But if and when online, and it shows that you don’t have a GPU, you will be disqualified.
    That’s why I say that, just to spare you a headache

    OK thanks
