    Why do you want to be a node? It is extremely necesarry to have a different approach of dealing with other people through media since it is known they abuse all of your information. The reward of supporting this project is great of course as well. Those are the main reasons.

      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. 1 article
      Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? No
      Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
      • 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 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? I am not that technical but I think decentralized is way way better
      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. That it eliminates your metadata and that it is protected against quantum computing which can ,but I think it will, be used to know all your information.
      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? It is not only critical for the future of the internet it is critical for the entire future of the human kind. Why do people use a password on their mobile phone? They do that to protect their information. So privacy by default would be the best thing since a long long time.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I read a piece about it and it is, if abused and they will abuse(like history learns us), very dangerous. For decentralized and centralized systems.

      Hey girl! Good for you that you listened to apply for a node. Good luck!

      You will have to upgrade your HW. Other than that you have my vote.

      Application looks legit :+1: HW and bandwidth seem good. Got my vote!

      Yes, my video card is not great. But I will buy the right one if I am selected. Thanks

      Looks good. You have my vote.

      Good application
      Videocard update when choicen

      Hai Amina,

      With Ryzen 5 you mean a Ryzen 5 3600x right? Also the new Ryzen 5 5600x is a beast! I recommend that one. Problem is that the 450 motherboard series do not support Ryzen 5000 series out of the box. So ask the vendor to update the bios beforehand. Costs like 5 euros or something.

      If you have any questions about hardware contact me on discord. Or ask questions in the node channel.

      You have my vote. Have fun!

      This application has my support too
