What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 64
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 8dollars
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 72
In what type of environment would this server be located? University / Academic Institution
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. I won't do that
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? Bitcoin miner and Ethereum miner
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Modern High-End Consumer grade CPU (8 physical/16 logical cores) ● 32GB RAM ●1TB SSD storage ● Mid-Range modern GPU with 32-bit Mul Units (Example: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 or RTX 3060Ti) ●100Mbps internet connection
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 xxnetwork can build a new generation network that can protect users' privacy and security, and can resist the threat of quantum computing. If I am lucky to be a node of XX network, I will have a deeper understanding of xxnetwork, and I will also publicize it
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Facebook
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Facebook
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? It can protect the privacy and security of users
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)? Domestic blockchain conferences are basically attended
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: Wechat community
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. would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc
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 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 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? I prefer decentralized network, because decentralized network is not in the hands of a company or an organization, but all people participate in it. Only decentralized network can achieve real fairness and justice. However, centralization can not be achieved. After all, it is in the hands of an institution or 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. Xxnetwork is a blockchain born to fight against the future quantum computer network. It constructs a privacy network with performance and security at the bottom, which can realize the privacy protection of user metadata
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? For example, a friend of mine likes to log in to the wireless network with his laptop very much, so he needs to encrypt the routing communication, otherwise the password is easy to be stolen when trading on the Internet - because a public router may record a lot of information including the password, even if SSL secure link is used when visiting the website, Attackers can perform man in the middle attacks to circumvent, which is a piece of cake for network hackers. Understanding these potential dangers, my friends strongly demand to know about the security risks of other Internet applications, such as government policies (Telecommunication communication records), device security (such as iPhone), websites that deliberately disclose privacy (such as Facebook), etc.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? The biggest difference between the decentralized system and the centralized system is that the decentralized system is based on the public key private key encryption system, but the centralized system is not. Therefore, the decentralized system is easily affected by the quantum computer. We have to make a decentralized system that can protect our own assets before the quantum computer comes
