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).

Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? I have everything to meet the specs and then some. CPU 3950, GPU 3080, Ram 128GB, EVO 970 pro & corsair MT600, liquid cooling on both the CPU & GPU.
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: I have all kinds of hardware. the list is too long. I'm an avid gamer and rig miner.
Why do you want to be a node? To be a part of something special and contribute to the network. This thing needs to grow and the world awaits!
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?
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The simple fact of privacy, security & quantum tech.
    Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?
    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? No
      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 network all nodes are equal so to speak. Normally there are consensus protocols. Decentralized can't be controlled with every node contributing independently.
      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-Network would empower the individual to have controller of their own data and privacy.
      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? There is far too much controller by various sources. I dislike the amount of control we DO NOT have any longer. It is time for individuals to gain control of what is rightfully theirs DATA and to be kept private if one so choses.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Breaking encryption
