    • To earn xx coins
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? 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.
    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 builds a high-performance, high-security privacy network at the bottom, and realizes value transmission, smart contracts, MPC, etc. on it, which is the infrastructure of the future decentralized society
    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 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? Since centralized systems do not all 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.

    Hi! Really glad to see another application for a node in Singapore!

    You have my support, but could you please clarify what hardware you are going to use if selected? Will the node be hosted at home or in a datacentre in Singapore?

    Please see the expected hardware:

    The uptime estimate is below the threshold. Can you do something about that? It is a great location btw!

    Kindly respond to the above questions. Thx

    Thank you very much for your support. I didn’t pay attention to the mailbox recently for some reasons. It is very accurate! 1. The hardware is: AMD Ryzen 7542, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, 2*8TB INTEL NVMe 2. I will mention Singapore’s data center to facilitate management;
    Thank you very much!

    hey! again it’s a bit confusing. are you going to co-locate your node hardware at the datacentre in Singapore or are you going to host the node hardware at home?

    please join xx network and look out for me @worthy then I can discuss with you more easily. I am in Singapore too.

    your application has not made the initial selection for this month. you need to clarify these details and get support from the community, otherwise it is more likely to be next month.

    This is a mistake, thank you for your reminder. I will provide more time for attention, thank you

    Hello, my upcoming plan for the data center in Singapore is a suggestion given to me by my good friend.

    a datacentre is not recommended for the node but could be used for the gateway

    Yes, I am going to prepare the gateway data center and the node in the company computer room

    OK,Thx :wink:

    ok that is a better explanation thanks. i have posted the hardware requirements above so please make sure you reference them to make sure your kit (including the expected nvme iop speeds) meets or exceeds them.

    this is too low, it needs to be over 90%. note if you don’t meet the performance figures set for each month you will not be compensated.

    finally i am in singapore and i run a node. feel free to reach out to me if you need help. i would also recommend joining the xx network discord channel and contributing to the community.

    Thank you for your patience. In fact, I will use a higher hardware configuration to run xx network nodes. I think the running time will exceed 90%. Yes, this is my promise. I will contact you in the community, hope you can help me, thanks
