        He has my vote

        I apologize for the incomplete form.
        I had i glitch while filling in the form (stuck with my laptop)

        Here, I’m filling the rest of the application.

        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 technology behind Elixxir catches my attention, especially the privacy part. Because of this I would like to apply

        How did you originally hear about the xx network?

        Word of Mouth

        Which current xx network communities are you a member of?

        Discord
        Twitter

        Are you an active member of those communities?

        No

        What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform?

        The capability of private messaging really interests me.

        Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?

        No

        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:

        No

        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.

        N/A

        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 private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations
        • To promote quantum secure distributed systems
        • To protect the privacy of political speech
        • To promote quantum secure distributed systems
        • To earn xx coins

        What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?

        Decentralized means that every node makes a decision for it’s own behaviour and the resulting system behaviour is the aggregate response
        Distributed means that the processing is shared across multiple nodes, but the decisions may still be centralized and use complete system.
        I stay on the more decentralized part

        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 platform has the focus on privacy, David Chaum known as pioneer in privacy preservation technologies and recognized as the inventor of digital cash

        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?

        Private data should be handled safely.
        If not, all data is in risk. Privacy by Deafult should preserve rights of private data
        .
        In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

        I think that quantum computers pose to threat the encryption in risk

        I’m going to build a node with new components (AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT, RTX 3060 Ti, 32GB DDR4, AORUS Gen 4 1TB SSD,)
