In what type of environment would this server be located? Datacenter
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
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.

Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Processor AMD Ryzen™ 9 3900x, Number of core - 12 Number of threads - 24, Base frequency - 3.8 GHz, Max Turbo Frequency- 4,6 GHz, RAM - 64 GB DDR4, Storage - 1 TB SSD NVMe, Graphics card Nvidia - GeForce GT710 1 GB GDDR5/192 Cores
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? First of all, gaining experience in network validation. Desire to help the community and development team achieve their goals. Become part of the network ecosystem.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? I learned from friends who validate solana
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Telegram
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform?
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? no
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? We are regular participants of the conference BlockchainUA. This year was no exception.
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. 3-5
    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 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 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? Distributed network all nodes are equal so to speak. Normally there are consensus protocols. Decentralized can't be controlled with every node contributing independently.
    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. The use of quantum computing it will be more secure and faster, with our info and transactions.
    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? Everyone should be able to control the level of their metadata on the web. Ideally, all user data should be kept private. The user must understand and be able to manage the information track that was sent to the network,
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? The ability to disrupt the structure of decentralized networks

    Good application, you have my support.

    Please note that you GPU (GeForce GT710) is NOT SUPPORTED for hosting a node.

    If you are selected it will need to be replaced with one of the following: [RTX 2070, RTX 2080, RTX 2080ti, RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2080 Super, RTX 3060ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3090].


    Please no datacenter
