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 attach great importance to XX network. Since I know XX network, I have been studying and learning about XX network. If I can become one of the nodes, I think I can understand XX network more deeply and maintain the nodes well

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: micro-blog, tiktok, etc.
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. I am willing to spend my spare time to maintain the operation of nodes and promote XX network
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? I only value the development of decentralized network. I personally think that decentralized network is the future of Internet, because only in decentralized network can people really control their rights. The right of centralized network is only in the hands of a few people, which cannot be fair and just
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. As far as I know, XX network is to build a privacy network with high performance and high security at the bottom, and realize value transmission on it. XX network realizes the privacy protection of user metadata for the first time
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? Now the network is mainly controlled by internet giants. It is not advisable for them to give up self-restraint of economic interests to protect users' data privacy. The real purpose of XX network is to realize that everyone has the right to own and control privacy
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? At present, quantum computer can easily crack the decentralized system, thinking that this system is based on the public key private key encryption system, which can lead to the destruction of most public chains. But centralization is not a public key private key encryption system, so quantum computer has little influence on centralization system
