For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Other (please specify): Clover, KIRA, Casperlabs
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? To make the nodes exchange information with each other faster
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? I have already bought the necessary hardware. It was the only thing I was worried about, so I have no doubts.
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 750
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 630
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 90
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. about 0.1 Usd dollar 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). MegaNet
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)? Ryzen 5 3800X, RTX 2080 Ti, RAM64, Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB, Samsung 860 QVO
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: nope
Why do you want to be a node? I'm crazy about this kind of technology. I always want to try how they work in practice.
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? As a technician, I am most interested in the technologies, namely Quantum Secure Hash-based cryptography, Quantum secure consensus protocol, and cMix technology. I would love to see them implemented.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? KIRA
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? Decentralized networks have their advantages. Firstly, the decisions are made across different nodes. Secondly, a decentralized network has more control over users. Besides, they are more secure and reliable. Distributed networks are similar, but can be complicated and difficult to handle. Decentralized networks are more accessible.
    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. The main value propositions are high performance, robust and unique cryptocurrency, quantum resistance, inability to consolidate power, linear scaling, good security and privacy by default.
    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 an inalienable right of every human being. Privacy by default gives people a kind of freedom, which is the engine of progress today. That's why I think it's so crucial.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? It seems to me that this could become pretty big of a problem in the future. All platforms that use cryptography should think about this and improve their level of protection.

    Nice application.
