For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Ethereum (ETH, ETC, etc)
  • Other (please specify): Mina protocol, Hopr
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? Scalability performance while no penalty for decentralisation
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? If the project will be not enough technologically advanced
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 900 mbps
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 900 mbps
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 99
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 0.07 cent kwh
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 100
In what type of environment would this server be located? Datacenter
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
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. colocation
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? Dell 730xd with supermicro jbod for Chia ( forget to notify this project in previous paragraph about my experience)
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Need few day to collect together
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 like this technology area, it’s excites me, I believe in web3.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter documenting Btc, post about Finney and David Chaum, then go to David Twitter and to here, and heard intelegram community and comment about this project in my video from youtube
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Telegram
  • Discord
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Privacy protecting, quantum secure platform, fast secure payments, store of value
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Chia blockchain, hopr node, eth node, plan to graph node soon. My activity is node operating, not developing yet
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Bangkok Eth conference with Vitalik :)
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. No
    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 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? Distributed is most decentralized network as I know, I’m sit on so much decentralisation that needed to achieve goal of the project
    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. Scalability problem in all block chain today, and privacy problem
    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 centralization organization put their power in private life more and more
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? They can destroy nowdays decentralise system. If central system have this power, they can take more private from anybody

    I am against your application because of that you are going to run the node in a datacenter

    It’s a temporary no for me, until I know you can get the right hardware. I am fine with you running the node in a datacenter, as long as it’s colocation and you meet the minimum specs.

    Please let us know the hardware specs of the computer you will be co-locating.
