    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? I am very excited about the technology. i would really like to be involved in the xx network and help make xx network great and to earn xx network tokens.
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • Twitter
    • Telegram
    • BetaNet Forum
    Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? what interests me most is the combination of high performance, privacy and the high speed at which volume can be processed. it could be a game changer
    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:
    • Instructional video content: i edit short videos to post on social media
    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
    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 earn xx coins
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • 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? Decentralized network means that there is no single point where the decision is made. Every node makes a decision for it’s own behaviour and the outcome of the system is decided by individual nodes. Distributed networks means there is a distributed network system in which program components and data depend on multiple sources. I'm on the side of decentralization.
    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 combines quantum security with privacy-protecting and high speed mix technology. that makes xx network unique and different from other blockchain solutions
    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? Privacy by default requires that the default settings always be as privacy friendly as possible. For example, care should be taken that personal data is never publicly visible by default. And that is very important to protect data.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

    Looks good. You have my vote.
    P.s. Dont worry about the set up. The manual is actually quite easy to follow, just give it a try. Did it myself also without any technical knowledge.

    You have a great community here to help you set everything up. Don’t worry.
    You have my vote!

    There’s plenty of help here to get you through it. You have my vote, all the best!

    Good luck fellow believer!

    Thank you all for your support. I really appreciate it!
