|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:||No|
|Why do you want to be a node?||Because this is a new experience related to a technical requirement including GPU. Also, the project itself is of technical interest.|
|How did you originally hear about the xx network?||Telegram|
|Which current xx network communities are you a member of?||
|Are you an active member of those communities?||Yes|

|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||
|What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?||The difference between a decentralized network and a distributed network is in the equivalence of network participants. In a decentralized network, each participant makes his own decision together with other participants in the network. While in a distributed network, this is done by control nodes. Both approaches have their pros and cons. A distributed network has faster access to resources, but access to them is controlled by organizations that can dictate their terms. Decentralized network - more redundant, but all network members have control over resources.|
|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 think the main and main difference between xx network and the rest is the protection quantum future-proofing of the xxBFT consensus algorithm and the desire to solve a very difficult task in practice - to build a decentralized network|
|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?||Controlling your information means controlling your life. In the current reality, we do not own our information and outsiders and organizations use it for their own purposes and benefits, which may contradict our expectations. Therefore, it is primarily a matter of personal security|
|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||With the advent of quantum computers, current encryption methods will be meaningless. This means that in addition to threats of loss of personal information, strategic objects will also be unprotected. Therefore, the problem must be solved in advance, before it appears.|
I like it I support it.
I like it. Very well spoken and clear application. Stay active in the community, follow through with the Hardware deployment and you have my vote. It’s nice to see legit applications from Russia! Be blessed!
Yes it is nice to finally see something from Russian that isn’t trying to do…well you know. It’s good and like your involvement. Has my vote.
Thank you for your trust!
I will try my best!
Thank you for your support!
Hi, I wanted to ask why the model of the video card was chosen specifically RTX 3070? You could save a lot by buying from miners 2-3 times cheaper than 1080 TI, or something from the 2xxx generation.
Great answers. You have my vote.
I’m not sure buying a supported graphics card is a good idea
Firstly, it is still not cheap, and secondly, it seems to me that there is no point in taking the old model
Therefore, when buying, I decided to take a new line from the 3000 series (yes, of course I would like the 3080, but it is expensive for me and it is almost impossible to buy it, it is not available anywhere)
After reading the telegram chats of the project and discord chanel, I realized that people use 3070 in this project quite successfully.
This purchase is a reserve for the launch of the miner and the subsequent growth of the network
After the application was approved, I put together a complete updated configuration of my server!
CPU - AMD Ryzen 9 3900X OEM
RAM - Kingston HyperX FURY Black 64Gb (2 x 32Gb)
GPU - MSI GeForce RTX 3070 GAMING X TRIO [RTX 3070 GAMING X TRIO]
BOX - be quiet! PURE BASE 500DX BLACK [BGW37]
Motherboard - MSI MPG B550 GAMING CARBON WIFI
Fan for CPU - DARK ROCK PRO 4 [BK022]
Memory - 1Tb Samsung 980 PRO [MZ-V8P1T0BW]
Power Supply - Seasonic PRIME TX-750 (SSR-750TR) 750W TITANIUM
If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer!
Thats a awesome setup.
nice setup, nice answer, got my vote also
I forgot to add it
Since ubuntu server 20.04 does not have built-in drivers for the b550 motherboard network adapter, I bought a separate TP-LINK TG-3468 PCI Express network adapter.
Аfter installing a separate network adapter, there were no problems with installing the network.
