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? for ordinary people - ease of setup and launch. of course we all want more decentralization, as many projects that appear have problems with decentralization. stability of the nodes in the network and optimized p2p connection
    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? 500 and above if needed
    What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 500 and above if needed.
    What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 90
    Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 10 per kw
    On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 20
    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).
    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)? I9 9980, RTX 2089Ti, 64GB ram and MT600 2tb
    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:
    Why do you want to be a node? I really want to become a part of a developing project, especially since cryptographer David Chaum is involved. I hope I to have time to get into the test groups and work in the future on the mainnet. I also want to get into testnet to increase my skills and abilities. it is an exceptional project,
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • Twitter
    • Telegram
    • Discord
    • Facebook
    • BetaNet Forum
    Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? safety and secure confidential data transmission. Quantum technology
    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. Reviews of blogs, post, etc.
      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? As far as I understand, for our part, we all gathered here to help decentrolize this project and not use data centers. Ethereum and Bitcoin are a good example. this is the kind of decentralization that we need. A distributed system has both vulnerabilities and advantages over a decentralized system. really decentralized systems are pretty slow at the moment
      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. You need a simple launch and a lot of interested people. if decentralization is sufficient and the speed does not fall, it will be the best project on the market. but it takes a lot of marketing work
      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 an integral part of human life. each person has the right not to show, for example, where he spends his personally earned money. but lately this has started to change towards digitalization and spying on every person. Including correspondence with other people should also be private. We must fight this with all the strength we have. I really believe in Chaum, as he knows a lot about it.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?
