Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? In 2016, I was engaged in server deployment and maintenance in a data center
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, I prepared them according to the configuration requirements in the white paper
Why do you want to be a node? I feel like I exist for this node

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? I am very interested in the currency, node, communication and governance of XX network
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? BOS GUCS etc
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? How can I answer this question? Well, I have attended most blockchain meetings in China, sometimes guests and sometimes audiences
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. Well, I haven't thought about this problem for a while. If I become a node, I will definitely be willing to arrange time
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? Decentralized networks give everyone the same right to vote Each node of decentralized network runs independently and maintains together. But the centralized network is operated and maintained by a large organization. In contrast, centralized network is more stable In terms of privacy, centralized network belongs to large institutions or organizations. Decentralization is the opposite
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 an anti quantum blockchain, so it constructs a high-performance and high security privacy network at the bottom, and realizes value transmission, contract, MPC and so on, which is the future decentralized infrastructure
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? XX network is to solve the problem of privacy protection at the bottom layer, which is more efficient and secure than that at the application layer. As the network is basically controlled by large companies, we have to find ways to change this situation, so XX network was born
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? In my opinion, the decentralized system is built on the public key and private key encryption system, which is easy to be cracked by quantum computer, so it can also lead to the destruction of most of the current public chains. We have to be prepared before that, and the centralized system is just the opposite of the decentralized system, so it won't be greatly affected

hardware copied from requirements, again

Very, very similar answers to the last 4 questions to many other applications from China. The same phrases with the same wording?!?!?!
