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?
  • Telegram
  • LinkedIn
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
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? 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
    • 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
    • Other (please specify): I believe in the XX Network's Vision to take Blockchain technology mainstream and participate in the development of the system in the future.
    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.
