  • Other: Wrote some papers and discussed with my team members and our communities in Wechat group.
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. Five articles and two vedios
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 earn xx coins
  • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
  • 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? On a decentralized network, people have more privacy and power, and the ownership of their data is personal. The data of a centralized network is controlled and controlled by a centralized organization. Decentralized networks are more stable. I prefer a 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. For the first time, XX network has realized the privacy protection of users' metadata. XX network constructs a high-performance, high-security privacy network at the bottom, and realizes value transmission, smart contract, MPC, etc., which is the infrastructure of the future decentralized society. XX network is quantum-resistant blockchain. 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? The major networks are controlled by big companies, and it is almost impossible for them to forgot the financial benefits of self-policing to protect the privacy of their users' data. Privacy should be owned and controlled by everyone. This requirement is contradictory to the current structure of the centralized network and can only be realized on the decentralized network. XXNetwork is just for this purpose.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Decentralized systems are built on public-private-key crypto systems, and quantum computers can easily crack public-private-key crypto systems, all of which could destroy most of today's public chains like Bitcoin. We don't know when a quantum computer will come, but it will come, so be prepared for that day and find a decentralized system that can protect your digital assets from a quantum computer attack. Centralized systems don't all use public-private key encryption systems, so quantum computers won't have much impact on them, or centralized systems have more centralized solutions for anti-quantum computers.

Good application & location, you have my vote.

Please note that if you are selected to host a node you will be expected to have hardware that meets the minimum requirements.

Your CPU and memory is ok, but you need appropriate SSDs and your GPU (1060Ti) is not good enough. Current supported GPUs are [RTX 2070, RTX 2080, RTX 2080ti, RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2080 Super, RTX 3060ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3090].

Your HW is below spec. If you can meet min requirements you have my vote.

Why do you consider “Bandwidth” as a potential setback if you are considering a 1 GB for upload and download?

[/quote]---------------Please do so…

Your gpu isn’t supported. See the requirements list that Worthy submitted.

You need to meet all hardware requirements

Please respond before you get my vote.

Great location, please improve where necessary :slightly_smiling_face:
