How did you originally hear about the xx network? Forum
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Facebook
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The way that it is secured from quantum computer that all other cryptos may face a problem in the near future.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Pi Network
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:
    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. No
    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
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Distributed is a system that a small group of people decides the overall strategy and the next move. Decentralized is a system where different groups of people can create new things based on the main system and take their own decision according to their project.
    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. First thing the xx network is secured from quantum computers that may critically affect all other cryptos. Second anonimity and privacy is just a thing that most of the world take for granted eventhough it doesnt exist and xx coin will change.
    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? Because every people must have the right to share his personal life with the people he wants and not with every company that wants to increase his profits in that way.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quabtum computers may be able to destroy every blockchain that currently increase and steal a lot of money since huge continents create their own quantum computers in secret labs and most of the people will learn it when it will be to late for their cryptos. Or in a worst case scenario they may be able to constantly steal money without even anyone notice.

    I would like to support you but your HW / bandwidth does not meet the minimum requirements (Revised BetaNet Node Hardware Requirements).

    Your under spec for both bandwidth and hardware.

    I reject this application. Your internet connection and hardware are not good enough to run a node.

    I would want to give my support but can you upgrade your internet and your gpu? I like the geo location
