|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?||Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to say. I am really looking forward to becoming a reliable and dependable node operator but alas, I'm inexperienced.|
|What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node?||Technical difficulty in setting it all up and maintaining but I will be making myself technically capable.|
|What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide?||1000mb/s|
|What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide?||1000mb/s|
|What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node?||97|
|Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running.||0.20 cents per kwh|

|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).||T-Mobile|
|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)?||No|
|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 look forward to contributing to the security and trustworthiness of the network. I have high values and work ethics and take those with me. For me, it would also be quite fun to be able to say I help run the xx network.|
|How did you originally hear about the xx network?||Word of Mouth|
|Which current xx network communities are you a member of?||
|Are you an active member of those communities?||Yes|
|What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform?||I like the way integrity and trustworthiness is placed in the forefront. Not only is it a cornerstone of the tech but you can also see this in the way xx network operates, e.g. making the node applications publicly available albeit anonymized.|
|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.||2|
|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||
|What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?||The main difference is that for distributed networks you can still have one point of failure, whereas for decentralized networks this is not the case. Somewhere in the middle, more to the decentralized side.|
|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.||Xx network uses teams for groups of nodes and along with precomputation achieves anonymity and trust The use of mixnet in this way and specifically the use of a return path which is also unique.|
|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 we do not obtain privacy by default, we will undoubtedly lose all privacy again. The premise should be privacy by default as it is the right of the individual. It is therefore also up to the individual's choice. Without this, we hamper innovation, progress, and also general individual well-being.|
|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?|
You have my vote! Do you really speak so many languages? I’m impressed
Thank you my man, highschool in the Netherlands sets you up pretty well to learn all those languages if you want to avoid learning about physics and all that
I support you!
solid application, has my vote!
You have my vote if you can clarify your hardware.
I was actually waiting to get approved and then purchasing the hardware. Was thinking about this list but am definitely willing to buy whatever gets the job done well
I was thinking a 2070 should do the job nicely. If you have a different suggestion it’s more than welcome my friend!
You have my vote .
More nodes running from the Netherlands would be great.
Good application.There are some already in The Netherlands. Got my vote!
Get the hardware you suggested and things will be fine and you will have my vote.
enough. you are aware of everything. with us
