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? I am interested in everything related to technology in IT, especially the idea of decentralization and cryptocurrency. I have been interested in blockchain projects since 2016. I would like to get a new experience in launching a node for XX, to become a part of your project.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Telegram
  • Discord
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Interesting experience of node deployment, decentralization, the possibility of passive earnings
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:
    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. yes, I'm ready, 1-2
    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
    • 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
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A decentralized network is a distributed network with the difference that the nodes must be located at large distances from each other and be independent. I want to be part of a decentralized network because I think that it's only due to the absence of centralization cool projects can live and grow.
    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. Excellent level of anonymity, resistance to quantum computing, privacy protection.
    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? confidentiality is essential to protect people from harmful corporate influences
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I think there is no particular threat, since such a quantum computer will be so expensive that it will simply not be economically efficient. Besides, as a rule, technologies develop in parallel. That is, with the advent of a quantum computer, encryption algorithms will already be resistant to it.

    The other day I decided to find out about the possibility of increasing the network bandwidth for my PC. To my delight, this turned out to be possible, so the data transfer speed will be raised to 500 Mbps (my ISP will prepare and configure the equipment tomorrow to increase the tariff).

    Hello comrades! Finally, I changed ISP to “domru.ru” - kazan.domru.ru/internet/mega-xl, increasing the network bandwidth to 500/500. The hardware is unchanged.
