    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)? Only the screen,keyboard and mouse. The rest I will buy according to the specifications as required, if selected of course.
    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? To be part of this project.It is amazing! And to earn also the coins as compensation.
    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?
      What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? That the data is protected. It is crazy that companies earn money with MY data!
      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:
      • Group messaging curation / management (telegram, whatsapp, etc): Just as a family group moderator or a group with friends
      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. 1 article or 2 for reviewing, also to talk with friends to join.
      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 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
      • Other (please specify): I have 1 daughter and would love to that she a choice with her digital avatar
      What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Distributed is at the end still centralized, and decentralized not at all. Obvious that decentralized is better for the people, so I like that a lot.
      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. That communication and payments are private. And that it runs on a mobile phone! Everybody has a phone! So that's great. And, correct me if I am wrong, but I think nobody offers that.
      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? I think people are afraid to post their ideas and that is only getting worse. When the XX network is live, I hope that people start using it, so they can express their feelings and ideas again.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I am sorry, I did not have read so much about it. But again, correct me if I am wrong, quantum computers can calculate everything much faster and if it falls into the wrong hands, they can do only more damage to our data and privacy and God knows what else.

      Thank you for the support! Very nice to hear that.

      Has my support. Just make sure if you are selected to meet all the HW specs please.

      Looks good but which HW?

      I made a list with the parts: AMD Ryzen 3600x processor, Corsair 32gb memory, Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1tb, graphic card the 2070super or a 3060TI.
