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). Frinet

Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 SUPER 8192 Mb KIOXIA EXCERIA PLUS 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
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 want to be useful to the project. So far, I see that operating a node is the only thing I can do for the network. Maybe in the future I will gain more experience and contribute to the development in some other way.

  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Linear scalability. Ideas of decentralization, freedom, and democracy.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Moonbeam, Swarm Network, Spacemesh, Solana
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? The key feature of decentralized network is that it has no central point of control. All network members have equal rights and power is distributed equally. Everyone has access to data and can easily verify it.
    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. For me, the essential value is the first truly high-performance cryptocurrency. Xx coins have a structural uniqueness in comparison to all the other coins. They will be very similar to real money. And because the xx coin can only be used once, no member will be able to allocate token distributions. This coin will not only support network management and economics but also decentralization.
    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? The concept of the internet is that it must be safe and free. No one must be worried about their personal data being sold or disclosed. If this concept is not maintained, then this digital space cannot be called the Internet. Moreover, no one will want to be there
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I don't see such a threat in the near future. But I am glad that the project team is thinking ahead and trying to protect their network
