|Why do you want to be a node?||to earn xx coins and assist the community in further development as it progresses|
|How did you originally hear about the xx network?||Word of Mouth|
|Which current xx network communities are you a member of?||
|Are you an active member of those communities?||Yes|
|What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform?||From what i have researched on xx thus far, it seems to handle transactions smoothly while also dealing with the quantum issue. Security within the network appears to be concrete and at that forefront of importance, which gives users good peace of mind when trading.|
|Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?||I was actively involved in some Bitcoin and Ethereum communities, however no longer am as I am devoted to this.|

|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.||I would be willing to aid with node setups and instructional videos on how to do so if necessary|
|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||
|What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?||When i think decentralized, i think more independent/privately operated. When i think distributed, i think of a group of interconnected systems that influence each other and work more closely off one another.|

|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||quantum computers can bypass encryption and steal private information on both systems, centralized or decentralized. Needless to say this is a very serious threat to both systems.|
