For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Bitcoin (BTC, BCH, etc)
  • Ethereum (ETH, ETC, etc)
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? I hope xx network can become a true privacy network
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? I still don’t know the requirements of xx network on the network, I see in the community that the network may be a big problem
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 200M/s
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 500M/s
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 63
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 20usd
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 77
In what type of environment would this server be located? Self-built computer room
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). China Telecom
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. ok
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? No
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Node: CPU: High core count modern CPU with Hyperthreading Capable of meeting Multithreaded PassMark score of 15,500 or Cinebench R5 Multi Score score of 1750 Examples: AMD Ryzen 7 2700x, AMD Ryzen 5 3600x, Intel Core i9-9980HK GPU: Nvidia Turing or Tesla GPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 or greater RAM: 16GB DDR4 or more (an upgrade path to 32GB is recommended) Storage: 1TB High Speed Enterprise NVME (PCI) SSD Recommended speed: 500,000 /500,000 IOPS Recommended Reliability: 1.5 million hours MTBF Example: Samsung 970 PRO SSD 1TB - M.2 NVMe Note: SSD reliability is not as important for the BetaNet when there will not be a large number of transitions. It is likely that lower endurance SSDs will be fine but will need to be replaced when it comes time for MainNet. If an SSD fails, it could take substantial time before a node is able to get back online. Bandwidth: 100mbit up / 100mbit down
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: No
Why do you want to be a node? Because I'm curious what xx network is
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • LinkedIn
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Anti-quantum computing technology
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? I don't participate in community activities
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? I have participated, but I forgot my name
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: I have no community 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. No
Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? No
Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
  • To earn xx coins
  • 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 decentralized networks, people have more privacy and rights, and data leads to individuals. The data of the centralized network is mastered and controlled by the centralized organization.
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
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.
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.

What hardware are you planning to use? I can only see the spec list copied from the handbook.
