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 have already ordered all required components that meet requirements. Graphic card is even better than required 😊 . 2080 RTX SUPER! GV-N208SGAMINGOC WB-8GDSO
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: Nope
Why do you want to be a node? To have some fun 😊 , to get more experience with new tech, to earn some coins that could be very valuable in the future.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Referred by the friend.
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? I like exploring how everything works. What are possible applications? How it could be used in my daily live? Can it be applied in my auditor job? I am just learning and trying to imagine its application possibilities.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? I am not active participant. I think I need to learn more and only after I can start sharing or participate in fruitful discussions.
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Nope
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. Yes I am willing but first I need to learn more about this tech.
    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 earn xx coins
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? If we have more equal nodes in the network, more fair rules and decisions could be supported by the network. I like when all need to agree for the one thing with equal rights.
    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. In the xx network it is very hard to centralize power because node operators are randomly selected from random places involving all community members and developers of the network. And for sure as everyone states privacy, security and speed are superior compare to current blockchain solutions.
    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? If you are losing privacy you are losing control of your life. You start living not your life. You are giving control to other people and they can make bad things to your life.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? They can easily decode encrypted information. If not today in near future more governments, corporations, syndicates will be able to do this. Decentralized systems can create more robust quantum resistant solutions.
