What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? I hope that xxnetwork can really solve the problem of user privacy and security
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? Not at all
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 1000
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 1000
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 90
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 8 dollars
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 93
In what type of environment would this server be located? Personal Home
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. NO
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? I have invested in Ethereum mining machinery before, and the hardware deployment and construction are mostly completed by myself
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Modern High-End Consumer grade CPU (16 logical cores) 32GB RAM 1TB SSD storage Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 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? I have been in the coin circle for five years, and many projects have said that it can guarantee the user's privacy, but they have not. The goal of xxnetwork is to really guarantee the user's privacy, so I am very interested. Why do I want to be a node is because I want to know more about xxnetwork. If I can, I will be in my circle of publicity and promotion
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Telegram
  • Facebook
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Whether the future development of xxnetwork can really protect users' privacy
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? BZZ COFI NEST etc
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? I have attended many meetings, such as all the meetings of Shanghai blockchain week
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: tiktok
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. Update Twitter every two weeks
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 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 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? In a decentralized network, each participant has the same right to vote, while the right of a centralized network is controlled by an institution or organization. In contrast, I like to decentralize the network. After all, some rights are most reassuring only in my own hands
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 constructs a high performance and high security privacy network at the bottom, which is a decentralized infrastructure in the future.
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 controlled by everyone themselves according to the principle. This problem is contradictory in the centralized network, but the ability to decentralized network can solve the biggest problem in the data age
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? At the present stage, quantum computer will have a great influence on the decentralized system, because the decentralized system is not like the centralized system. The decentralized system is built on the encryption systems such as public key and private key, which makes the decentralized system easy to be cracked by quantum computer, but the centralized system can not be affected by it. So we need a blockchain that can resist quantum computing to protect our digital assets
