What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 100
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 0.0794 €/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? Personal Home
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). TELEFONICA DE ESPAÑA
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 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 want to be an active member of this community becouse I strongly support your ideas of privacy. I would like to help raise this network to fight against the centralization and control of companies and goverments. Those forces shouldnt be able to use our data to chain us like they are now.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Telegram
  • Discord
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The ideology behind it and what I believe it will become in the future.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? no
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. 5/10 hours
    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 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? In a decentralized network the control over the net is spread between all the nodes, meaning that theres not a major entity that owns all the power and influence over the network. In a distributed network the processing is spread across multiple nodes, but decision making can still be centralised.
    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. Since its beggining, the xx network has been designed to be quantum secure. It provides the most privacy and personal data/meta data security. It is also fast and easily scalable.
    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? Becouse our personal data can have a lot of influence and power if it gets collected, sold, and used for political or economic reasons like it's been done before.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? In a centralized network, if a quantum attack on the central unit is successful, it would affect the entire network. Taking that into account I think it would be easy to take down an entire centralized network with a single quantum atack.

    I have known this man for twenty years and I can say that he will undoubtedly be a great node runner :wink: :v:
