What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 95
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 28 usd per month
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 80
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). Triolan
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)? AMD Ryzen 7 2700x, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, Samsung 883 DCT 240GB, 32GB DDR4
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? It seems to me that operating a node is the most useful thing I can do for the project. After all, by maintaining a node, you support the whole network.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
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? Most of all xx consensus. I feel like I'm already collecting them. First there was proof of work, then proof of stake. The last interesting discovery for me was proof of history. However, your consensus protocol seems to me much more awesome than all the others
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Solana, Swarm
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. No
    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 promote quantum secure distributed systems
    • 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
    • To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? The difference is that the distribution system may not always be decentralized. Yes, the distributed network is supported by different machines, but they can all be operated by the same person.
    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. At the heart of xx network is the concept of Web 3.0. It is the next and vital stage in the development of the internet. David Chaum proposes that users and society take control of their data and information through cryptography.
    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? Without this, the internet would lose all meaning at all. After all, its basic concept is freedom and openness. If someone controls your data, there is no reason to talk about freedom.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? If more projects like xx network appear in the future, we will have nothing to fear

    You have my support!

    Your ssd isn’t conform specs if you change this you would have my vote

    I will buy Kingston KC2500 1TB NVMe M.2

    This isn’t fast enough it’s only 300k/350k iops you need a minimum of 500k/500k iops.
