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). Bell Fibre
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 already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? I’m big time gamer and 2 gaming computers that are fully loaded. Ryzen 3950, 2080Ti, 64GB ram, 2tb of memory.
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: No
Why do you want to be a node? I am interested in working on projects that develop blockchain technology. To be part of a team that is working with incredible technology.
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
  • LinkedIn
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? I am interested about innovative xx network consensus algorithm and its implementation, which bring great energy savings. I would like to learn more about technical part of this project.
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? I'm pro decentralization, centralized one lead to authoritarian regimes. Decentralized means that there is no single point where the decision is made.
    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. The obvious value of xx network is its privacy, decentralization and quantum resistance but the real value comes from smart and skilled community leaded by David Chaum who is probably the most experienced person in the industry.
    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? Internet is slowly and steadily monopolized and Privacy by Default would give us a fighting chance to level the playing field
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers is a breakthrough that will affect whole Internet when they become enough powerful. Quantum computers can solve certain problems exponentially faster than normal ones. Especially it put in the risk everything which takes advantage of RSA encryption (quantum algorithms allow to find private key in relatively short time).
