    What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? Absolutely nothing.
    What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 900 - Telus
    What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 900 - Telus
    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. Estimated .09 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?` 15
    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). Telus
    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)? I do not However, if selected I have no issue purchasing the equipment thats is required to run the node as per specs. Would run full spec node.
    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? It’s all about the underlining technology, David Chaum being involved and the right to privacy.
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • Twitter
    • Telegram
    • Facebook
    Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Quantum computing resistance. The solution to this problem will be relevant in the coming years. Helping resolve our privacy issues.
    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. Review posts and anything else that might help the network and community.
      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? The difference between a decentralized network and a distributed network is in the equivalence of network participants. In a decentralized network, each participant makes his own decision together with other participants in the network. While in a distributed network, this is done by control nodes. Both approaches have their pros and cons. A distributed network has faster access to resources, but access to them is controlled by organizations that can dictate their terms. Decentralized network - more redundant, but all network members have control over resources.
      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. I think the main and main difference between xx network and the rest is the protection quantum future-proofing of the xxBFT consensus algorithm and the desire to solve a very difficult task in practice - to build a decentralized network
      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? Controlling your information means controlling your life. In the current reality, we do not own our information and outsiders and organizations use it for their own purposes and benefits, which may contradict our expectations. Therefore, it is primarily a matter of personal security
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? With the advent of quantum computers, current encryption methods will be meaningless. This means that in addition to threats of loss of personal information, strategic objects will also be unprotected. Therefore, the problem must be solved in advance, before it appears.
