    What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? Other than waiting fo hardware, nothing.
    What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 900 gb
    What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 900 gb
    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. 9 cents
    On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 19
    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 have most everything except I would have to upgrade from RTX 2060 to 2070 super or higher and change my memory. None of which would be an issue if selected to run a 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: No
    Why do you want to be a node? The simple fact that there was an attempted identity theft towards myself recently. Was not a pleasant thing to have to go through. Fortunately everything worked out. Additionally, I simply love the underlining technology that the xx network has to offer and really would like to be part of this community.

    • Twitter
    • Telegram
    • Facebook
    Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Decentralization and protection from quantum computers, I think this project is very modern and advanced.
    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)? No
    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. Ongoing reviews and any other area that I’m suitable to help and contribute.
      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? In distributed systems, each node makes its own decision, and this is important to understand. The final behavior of the system is a set of decisions of individual nodes. So it turns out that there Is no single object that receives the request and responds to it.
      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. quantum security, enhanced security, high performance,
      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? Online privacy has opened up new opportunities for life and self-expression. Most governments are looking for a way to control the Internet through deanonymization. I am concerned about this, we should live in a free world and be free people and be allowed to control our own choices.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers threaten existing encryption algorithms and the security of centralized systems, which undermines the foundations of existing Internet privacy. what kind of free society can you talk about if everything can become globally centralized . we must not allow this to happen and we must make a contribution to the future of us and our children
