For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Other (please specify): Near, Avalanche.
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? In the process of work, I will express my wishes on the forum
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? no
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 100
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 100
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 95
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 0,06 kw/h
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 100
In what type of environment would this server be located? Personal Home
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). ip-home
If your server is located in a Datacenter, please specify the name of the company hosting it.
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? No
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Ryzen 7 3700x, RTX 2080 super, 32 gb ram 3200 16-18-18, 1 tb ssd m2 samsung pro.
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: Radeon VII
Why do you want to be a node? I believe that Project XX is one of the most promising at the moment. It is for networks that can provide speed and privacy without sacrificing decentralization for the future. Equally strong development team such as David Chaum was ahead of his time. What could be better than being a part of it?
How did you originally hear about the xx network? youtube
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Telegram
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The idea of a quantum secure decentralized network
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? no, but I would like
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. I could allocate about 22 hours a month to create activity, on forum XX, twitter, discord. I am interested in developing this project.
    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 private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations
    • To promote quantum secure distributed systems
    • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? in a decentralized network, each participant makes his own decision in cooperation with other network participants. In a simply distributed network, there are control 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. Quanto is secure, decentralized, scalable.
    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? Information is the most valuable resource. And everyone has the right to be anonymous. Now with this problem.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? You can write here all evening). The advent of quantum computers could undermine how cryptography works, which underlies much of today's digital infrastructure.

    Looks fine. You have my support.

    Seems like a good application.I say yes.

    All good…yes.

    Has my support.

    Very interesting, people with weaker computers from my region were selected. But not me. Can I find out the reason for the refusal in order to fix it in the future.

    Looks fine. You have my support.
