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? i havent supported previous nodes, this is my first one
    What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? the requirements for hardware after the mainnet, this is just for the betanet, it would be nice if the ones who are selected for the betanet can easily be transferred to the future nodes after the mainnet, of course by adjusting the hardware that is needed after the mainnet
    What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 1000
    What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 1000
    What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 100
    Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 100
    On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 49
    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)? GTX 3070, AMD 7 3700x, 32GB RAM, 1TB M.2 SSD SAMSUNG EVO PLUS (planning on upgrading to AMD 9 5900x)
    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? privacy is very important, i want to be a part of a decentralized system and of course earn money with the tokens we receive
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • Twitter
    • Telegram
    • Discord
    Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? the founder david chaum, who is well known as the man of the privacy. i really think xx network, with the speed and decentralized network can be a good solution for the threat of quantum computing.
    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:
    • Group messaging curation / management (telegram, whatsapp, etc): volunteering for a charities, organizing events
    • Other: im a volunteer for a foundation dedicated to youth and education
    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. 5hrs
    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 promote quantum secure distributed systems
    • To earn xx coins
    • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? a decentralized network is a network where every individual is connected to each other, but if one falls away, the entire network does not have to fall apart immediately. highest privacy, least risk. the nodes are not on one place together, the risk is very high with a centralized netword. if im selected i will be a part of the decentralized network.
    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. it is a unique project where privacy is at a very high priority, this can be achieved by organizing the network in a decentralized manner by having nodes all over the world that must meet strict hardware requirements. the speed with which the transactions take place and the technology that removes the danger of quantom computers
    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? to protect your identity and all your personal information from hackers. it is very important to protect this information, like your personal financial situation, you dont want people to know this, its your privacy. i think privacy is the biggest threat for the future of internet.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? quantum computers are only a threat towards centralized systems. they can be easily encrypted. Its not a threat to decentralized encrypted systems, its too complex for those quantum computers to encrypt the data which is hidden in the blockchain world.

    Good application, has my support! :+1:t5:

    Good luck, seems like a solid candidate

    Approved! (*The upgrade to 5900x is not needed, optional)

    Looks good to me, although like @fierydev says, the upgrade of the CPU isn’t required :+1:

    Looks good! Got my support

    Strong application. I say YES. Best of luck

    Good application, has my vote!

    To the operator of this node:

    $ grep FATAL /opt/xxnetwork/node-logs/node.log

    You will likely see…

    FATAL 2021/04/21 20:45:01 Failed to start server: Unable to run instance: unable to contact local address:

    Edit the node.yaml file …
    $ nano /opt/xxnetwork/node.yaml

    Find, uncomment and change the IP of the overrideInternalIP flag like so …

    overrideInternalIP: “”

    Save, exit and restart the node and gateway processes.
