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 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? As far as I understand, for our part, we all gathered here to help decentrolize this project and not use data centers. Ethereum and Bitcoin are a good example. this is the kind of decentralization that we need. A distributed system has both vulnerabilities and advantages over a decentralized system. really decentralized systems are pretty slow at the moment
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. you need a simple launch and a lot of interested people. if decentralization is sufficient and the speed does not fall, it will be the best project on the market. but it takes a lot of marketing work
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 is an integral part of human life. each person has the right not to show, for example, where he spends his personally earned money. but lately this has started to change towards digitalization and spying on every person. Including correspondence with other people should also be private. We must fight this with all the strength we have. I really believe in Chaum, as he knows a lot about it.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? it is a very difficult question, as long as I only know that quantum computers cannot work in the same way that ordinary silicon computers work. it seems to me that it will all work together in the future. Breaking the current device of networks and passwords is currently not beneficial to anyone, since the whole economy is tied to it, and this will be tantamount to the end of the world.

i am not 100% sure with datacentre but looks good, you have my vote if the hardware fits

Location is great and application is good.

If selected you will have to meet the minimum hardware requirements.

I think you should buy a good hardware before you run your node here.

Great location, application looks good, but please elaborate a bit on your hardware plans.
