|For which networks have you ever operated a node?||
|What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported?||N/A|
|What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node?||None|
|What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide?||750 Mbps|
|What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide?||1 Gbps|
|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.||10 cents per 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?`||53|
|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).||Bell|
|If your server is located in a Datacenter, please specify the name of the company hosting it. Nodes will not be allowed to run on Hetzner. If you do, you will not receive compensation.|
|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)?||CPU Ryzen 9 3950XT , Cooler Thermal Take Floe DX360 , GPU RTX 2080Ti Memory 32GB Ram , 2T Samsung EVO plus|
|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:||N/A|
|Why do you want to be a node?||I believe in the XX Network's Vision to take Blockchain technology mainstream and participate in the development of the system in the future.|
|How did you originally hear about the xx network?||Word of Mouth|
|Which current xx network communities are you a member of?||
|Are you an active member of those communities?||Yes|
|What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform?||The Quantum Resistance of this platform seems to offer far better payments , messaging privacy and transaction speed than the currently popular mainstream crypto currencies . Now , more than ever , we have to work as a global community.|
|Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?||No|

|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.||2 Posts a month|
|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?||ecentralized networks cannot be controlled by a single supervisory authority and the outcome of the system is an aggregate of the decisions of the individual nodes. Distributed networks follow consensus protocols to agree on same values / commands / transactions /etc and the computations are spread across multiple nodes.I support an equilibrium of decentralized distributed newtworks.|
|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.||The XX Network Platform handles the throughput and scalability while maintaining a high level of privacy and transaction speed.|
|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?||Privacy are the stated goals of many messaging and blockchain solutions and fail miserably . XX Network is the only network with true decentralization and uses Metadata shredding and Quantum Resistant secure cryptography.|
|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||It's hard to say with the rapidly increasing power and speed of quantum computing , but of all the blockchains , XX seems to offer the most Quantum resistant network.|
