For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Other (please specify): Mina, Swarm Bee, Solana testnet, Agoric
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? The most common problem is that transactions are very slow to be sent. So I would like to see a high speed of sending transactions.
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? No setbacks at all.
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 800
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 700
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. 0.11 USD per 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?` 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). StarNet
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. I don't use a Datacenter
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)? 64RAM, Intel Core i9-9980HK, SSD WD AN1500 1TB, RTX 2080
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 am madly inspired by the concept of blockchain. I want decentralized networks to continue to evolve. My technical experience allows me to contribute to these systems, so I want to be a node.
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? The desire of its developers to build a genuinely decentralized network, taking into account all the risks and problems that could arise. I think this is the first network that will be able to deal with the weaknesses of many blockchains.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Mina, Solana testnet, Agoric
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? Distributed networks are not good for me because the participants are not on an equal footing. For instance, the main data is stored in the central computer, so it is more vulnerable than decentralized ones.
    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. As I understand it, David Chaum and his team are trying to create one of the most secure networks at the moment. The xx Network is a platform where every user will feel secure. xx Network is ahead of other blockchains and networks in this aspect.
    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 by default protects us from abuses of power, even if they do nothing wrong.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I think quantum computers pose quite a threat to decentralized systems. Their computing power is enough to hack into any of them.
