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:
Why do you want to be a node? I believe in an idea of freedom, decentralization and reducing the role of the state in controlling people's lives. The opportunity to contribute to the development of the crypto industry makes my life more interesting and useful for society.

Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)?
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:
  • Other: Participating in the curatorial program the Graph wrote articles and made memes.
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. 4
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 earn xx coins
  • To contribute to a promising project
  • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
  • 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? The decentralized network is based on a decentralized consensus mechanism. A distributed network can be managed centrally. I try to become part of this decentralized mechanism and take responsibility into my own hands without shifting it to different institutions.
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 platform offers protection against attack by quantum computing and the highest level of transaction anonymity and message confidentiality.
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? Confidentiality means that there is no possibility for third parties to access private information. This greatly complicates the ability of large companies, governments and supranational structures to influence society and exploit people for their own benefit.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? The principle of operation of a quantum computer is very different from the operation of a computer on conventional chips. As its complexity increases with the addition of more qubits, its computing power grows exponentially. Ultimately, this will lead to a loss of efficiency of modern encryption algorithms based on the decomposition of a number into simple factors. As a result, the operation of decentralized and centralized systems will be compromised.
