    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? 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 help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
    • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
    • To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A distributed system is a network of stand-alone computers connected by distribution middleware. A decentralized system requires several parties to make their own independent decisions "In such a decentralized system, there is no single centralized body making decisions on behalf of all parties. I'm more inclined towards the second category)
    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. I have not yet met in the world of cryptocurrencies, technologies that use quantum. This is the difference. Praxxis has developed a next generation quantum blockchain that uses a unique consensus mechanism called xxBFT, or xx consensus. After transactions are blended using Elixxir, payments are sent to independent nodes running the xx consensus protocol to be confirmed and added to the blockchain. xx network is the only blockchain-based quantum security solution that can combine the speed, scalability and security features required for mass adoption of blockchain technology.
    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? Existing social networks and payment platforms built their business on the monetization of personal data, which led to manipulation of elections, sale and leakage of personal data. The xx network deprives centralized organizations of the incentive and ability to abuse our data.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Public key cryptography is considered the most insecure and vulnerable to being hacked by a quantum computer. I hope we can avoid this with this network)

    Good performance. My voice is yours.

    No more datacenters pls.

    Ah man…another datacenter!

    Hi, I am planning to use the data center as a place to rent my equipment. I think these are different things.

    1. Machine and equipment of its own.
    2. Maintenance and replacement of equipment in case of breakdown.
    3. Internet 1Gbps, which your home provider does not provide.
    4. Data Center Tier 3

    I don’t understand your displeasure.

    Hi above, I explained how I plan to use the data center.

    Hi, the difference is that the car in the data center will be mine, not the provider’s.

    There are no datacenters that rent out the Turing card you need for this project 1080ti maybe but that’s not enough.
    2. Monthly cost are hughe

    You don’t seem to want to understand what I’m trying to tell you. After all, I said in sufficient detail that I am not going to rent equipment in a data center, but I want to rent a place for my computer with my components. If you think this is not possible, you can go to the source indicated above and see for yourself what services this data center provides.
