  • Ethereum (ETH, ETC, etc)
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? So good so far, JSON API for node status would be nice
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? Video card shortage, but seems manageable
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 1gb
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 1gb
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. 0.059 USD/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?` 10
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). Tenet
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)? No
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: I'll buy what's recommended, the only deficit is the video card, but it's manageable
Why do you want to be a node? I wish to support the project, increase its decentralization and earn more XX coins.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Tip from friend
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Telegram
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Privacy focus, useful products, solid team, quantum security, helpful community.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Aragon
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 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 contribute to a promising project
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
    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. Quantum secure, privacy-oriented products for communication, collaboration, and exchange.
    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 is important for security and personal safety, especially in crypto where everything is based on knowledge of private keys.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

    Solid application…
    Please answer on this two questions :
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

    Please give some spec of your hardware.

    Hi! It’s my application, thanks for reading! Attached my preorder, but will replace video card to 2070 super or 3060ti.


    Decentralized systems doesn’t have a specific owner and are distributed. So decentralized is superset of distributed, which mean it has traits like resilience, high availability etc but also not owned by someone.

    Quantum calculation use three dimensions instead of usual 2 (for binary calculus) so potentially can solve math tasks which would took millions of years with conventional computation. In theory it can make possible to calculate private keys form public keys and public keys from hashes. It’s a threat for both decentralized and centralized systems which rely on quantum insecure cryptography. Xx network plan to solve this with random hash functions and other geeky crypto tricks from Chaum.

    Looks good, have my vote :+1:

    Yep, it would be good to replace video card.
    Advice : buy one more storage for gateway :
    240 GB High Speed Enterprise SSD
    Recommended speed: 100,000/10,000 IOPS
    Recommended reliability: 1.5 million hours MTBF.
    You have my vote :+1:

    Will do, thanks!

    +1 Cool name for an internet provider, No friends at dusk, huh? :slight_smile: If I’m not mistaken this scene is filmed in Ukraine, good luck with the rest of the application process

    Its one of the oldest providers in Odessa, was funny when the film just released :slight_smile:

    Thanks for the wishes!

    I can confirm that all my hardware is assembled an ready to run the node! Got RTX 2070, but improved CPU to Ryzen 7 5800x 3.8gz (got a good discount on it :-))
