    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. I intend to buy brand new hardware according to the published specs.
    Why do you want to be a node? I want to be part of THIS net, that will change the balance of power, from the big corporations, to the people itself.
    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? Liberate from being monitored by the big eye. Keep your privacy. Become independent from being watch, evaluated and censored by the Big Corporations that rule the world today. My house , has its own solar electricity plant, and its own water supply. I love not to be depending from the companies that runs those services. Very excited in increasing my liberty , belonging to a peer network, that runs independent from the big IT Companies. Is the type of society I want to inherit my children.

      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. aprox 10 hours per month of dedication
        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
        • 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 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
        What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? The main difference in the decentralized network, is how and where the decisions are taken, and how that information is share between the system nodes. The decisions are taken by the community, not by a single head. I think that we have to go for as much as socialized decisions. As more nodes participate, stronger the idea, better results.
        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 is a philosophy. A way the world, the planet, our society, our families should be guided. Socialized decisions, discussion from the base. It differs from other blockchain solutions in the quantum secure hash-based cryptography. The classic computers use the bits , which can be in 1 or 0, but only in one combination at a time. Easily controled, easily observable, easily hacked. Quantum computing, uses cubits, a special combinations of ones and ceros, and they can be in 2 states at a time. Imposible to be hacked. Free from the Big Eye of the Abusive IT Corporations. On the other hand, it has the capacity of growing linearly, by adding new nodes but keeping the endorser group the same size.
        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? Because not everybody is actively protecting his privacy. Privacy should be the starting point, and one should share ones data only if one decides to do so, not the other way around. Privacy takes the power of our personal data out of the hands of the big IT, and it diminishes their power to control the internet.
        In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers are not a threat for decentralized systems. But they do are a real threat to centralized systems. Permits the people to express, not being heard or watch. Impossible for Big Corporations to control the system. Power from the people, to the people.

        Friggin great application with a much needed geo location. Would love to have you on board. Big YES for me.

        Thank you!
        Looking forward to be part of the

        Looks good. I have family in Peru but they are having a huge problem with providers which do port forwarding. Movistar Peru doesn’t support it.

        Do not have that problem at all, in Chile.

        great approach! high consciousness and competent equipment. If I had the authority, I would choose today. :slight_smile: stay with us.

        Thank you, Hilmi.
