On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 90
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). Gulfstream
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)? Intel Core i9-9980HK, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, RAM 63 GB, Samsung 883 DCT 240GB
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? I’m keen on the blockchain technology.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Telegram
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? In addition to the innovative technologies that the team is already using, I was interested in the idea of creating a truly secure and decentralized messenger. I now see how the government and others are putting pressure on the creators of other messengers. They once promised security too. I hope that xx network will succeed for sure
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Mina and Solana
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? I would compare a distributed network to parliamentarism in terms of governance. Because only some nodes can make decisions. While a decentralized network is anarchism, where control belongs to all network members without exception.
    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 will be able to overcome the major weaknesses of all blockchains like lack of speed, scalability and usable privacy. To ensure protected digital sphere xx network relies on two highly innovative protocols: Elixxir and Praxxis
    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? It is vital because I see the internet of the future as a very free and independent platform, independent above all of the government.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I think it is too early to talk about it, as the first quantum computer is still a long way off. But if it does, it will most likely be able to crack any blockchain.

    Has my vote!!!

    not bad, you have my support

    Nice request, has my vote

    If you would have a ssd which meets the requirements you would have my support please check the node handbook for specs

    You have my vote too.

    I have 64 RAM and am running out of memory I will take a bigger drive probably WD 1TB NVMe M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0

    Be sure that you have at least 500k/500k iops
    Most of the standard ssd nvme m.2 aren’t fast enough so you should use the pro variant in case of a Samsung drive

    Okay, I will choose the pro one
