    Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 25 cents/kwh
    On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 100
    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). Salt
    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)? No
    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: Not yet , planing to buy it
    Why do you want to be a node? To be part of an interesting project as XXX, i'm convinced XXX can have an important place in the next few years it could provide more safety as it is actually comparing to money
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • BetaNet Forum
    Are you an active member of those communities? No
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? the decentralization of the platform
    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? Yes
      Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
      • 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 help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
      • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
      • Other (please specify): To decrease the power of states
      What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Centralized network got a weakness , they are "easier" to control and survey. Decentralized networks allow a great redundancy and improves the safety of the network
      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 allows a safety for the future , it has counter-measurement against quantum cracking. And node attacks.
      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 is linked to freedom, with lack of privacy the freedom is not possible and that's very dangerouns because everything can be controlled by one entity. The principal goal is to make impossible the growth of such entity.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers are an issue , because exhaustives calculations can become easy , centralized node would be easier to "attack"

      Looks good :+1:

      I accept this application and it has my vote.

      The xxx network is for 18+ only :sweat_smile:
