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. 5 euro
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). SERVERION
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. DİGİTAL OCEAN , VULTR maybe i can use them.
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)? I can use vps but i already have powerful hardware
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 believe that technology is now tending towards coins and the world will revolve around this technology, so I want to be involved with this technology.
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 technology it offers, its potential in the future, its value to its participants.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? NYM , SPACEMESH , CASPER , KIRA , ALEO etc.
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? not yet.
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. We currently have a telegram group of over 400 people and we are preparing and sharing the introduction of other projects in this group, the Turkish guide and video narratives, as well as managing the turkey community of some projects.
    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 earn xx coins
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • Other (please specify): As I mentioned before, I want to be intertwined with this technology because I realized early that the world is keeping up with this technology.
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralized means that there is no single point where the decision is made. Every node makes a decision for it’s own behaviour and the resulting system behaviour is the aggregate response.
    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. he xx coin is a secure, denominated digital currency that can be traded among users and businesses while incentivizing operations on the xx network. The xx coin is used to incentivize governance that enforces transparent operation of the network and empowers users to participate in the ecosystem.
    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? Online privacy is important for numerous reasons. You don't want to share details of your personal life with strangers and it's hard to be sure what personal information is gathered and by whom: information collected by one company might be shared with another.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computing poses a threat to blockchain technology because it upends the basic security assumption of elliptic curve cryptography, namely, that computers cannot factor large numbers effectively


    A decent application, but before I give my support could you please clarify where the node will be hosted (Netherlands or Turkey) and what the specifications are of your hardware?

    You need a supported GPU (RTX 2070, RTX 2080, RTX 2080ti, RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2080 Super, RTX 3060ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3090) or a very powerful CPU.

    Agree with worthy.

    Serverion servers are in Amsterdam/New York.

    Please specify which one will you will use.

    Please give some specs. for home hardware.
    Here are requirements for node/gateway and node and gateway on same computer
