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? Want to test, of course, the starting point is to try new technologies
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Introduction by my friend
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Telegram
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? I will have a more specific description when I finish the test
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? mina clover much
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)?
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:
  • Other forum management: wechat
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 decentralized network allows everyone to have the right to vote, and people have the same right to vote. On decentralized networks, people have more privacy and rights, and data ownership belongs to individuals. The data of the centralized network is mastered and controlled by the centralized organization. On a decentralized network, each node operates independently, and the centralized network is started and maintained by an institution or organization. The stability of the decentralized network is higher. I prefer decentralized networks
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. xx network is a quantum-resistant blockchain xx network realizes the privacy protection of user metadata for the first time The xx network constructs a high-performance, high-security privacy network at the bottom, and realizes value transmission, smart contracts, MPC, etc. on top of it, which is the infrastructure of the future decentralized society xx-messager is already available
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? Solving privacy protection on the underlying network is more efficient and safer than solving privacy protection on the application layer. The existing major networks are controlled by large companies. It is almost impossible for them to give up their economic interests and protect users' data privacy through self-discipline. Privacy should be owned and controlled by everyone. This requirement is inconsistent with the current structure of centralized networks. It can only be achieved on decentralized networks. This is the purpose of xxnetwork.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? The decentralized system is built on a public-private key encryption system. Quantum computers can easily crack the public-private key encryption system, and it is likely to destroy most of the current public chains such as Bitcoin. We don't know when the quantum computer will arrive, but it will definitely come, so we need to prepare for that day and find a decentralized system that can protect our digital assets from quantum computer attacks. Because not all centralized systems use public-private key encryption systems, quantum computers will not have a great impact on them, or centralized systems have more centralized solutions for anti-quantum computers.

Japan is a great location, nice to have more nodes in Asia. You have my vote as long as you can meet the requirements.

If you are selected there are a few things to take note of:

These are not high enough. You need a minimum of 100 Mbps / 12.5 MBs to host a node. Are you able to get a different connection with the expected bandwidth?

Again this is too low. The latest figure for this month is 80% and will increase each month. Is there a reason you can only commit to 68%?

What GPU do you plan on using?

The current supported GPUs are [RTX 2070, RTX 2080, RTX 2080ti, RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2080 Super, RTX 3060ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3090]


Love the geo but need to meet the min requirements.

What GPU do you have?

SoftBank Air’s max speed is 350Mbps, and it’s slower than those of fiber optic internet (max speeds are from 1 to 2Gbps) and WiMAX(the max speed is 440Mbps)
i think that you did’t write it correct
Specify which one do you have

Please improve your application sufficiently, then you will get my vote, great location!

Good application. Has my vote.

just can agree the comments before, take the right requiements and your chances are very good :wink:
