For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • EOS
  • 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? What I pay great attention to is the governance of online communities. A lot of governance of online communities is basically the things that are still managed in the front, and almost no one manages the community in the back. So I hope XX network can improve on this point
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? No, I can't give an answer before there is no actual operation. Some problems can only be found in practice
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? 94
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 7-9 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?` 95
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. I won't do that
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? When I was in a business position, a client asked us to help operate the data center server
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, I prepared them according to the official requirements
Why do you want to be a node? I like to try new things, and I can succeed every time I try. I hope to be one of the nodes. I also believe that I have the ability to operate and maintain the node well
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? I am interested in everything, and I am interested in all aspects of XX network
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? No, I've only seen my colleagues and friends do it before
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Yes, I can answer this question precisely, because we have held blockchain conferences ourselves, and I have participated in most of the domestic conferences
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, 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. Set up nodes, social software, 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 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 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 a decentralized network, and I've been moving towards a decentralized network. Because the decentralized network can make the participants truly achieve autonomy and fairness, rather than let the power concentrate in the hands of an institution or an organization. And compared with the centralized network, it has higher stability
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 has realized metadata privacy protection for users for the first time, and now XX messenger can be used. It is unprecedented to build a performance and security privacy network from the bottom of the network
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? It is more efficient and secure to solve the problem of user privacy in the underlying network than in the application layer. Because the network is almost controlled by institutions or organizations, it is almost impossible to protect privacy. Only in the decentralized network can we control our own privacy. XX network can just solve this problem
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Decentralized system is easy to be attacked by quantum computer, but centralized system is not easy to be attacked. The main difference between the two systems is whether they are built with public private key system. If we want to develop decentralized network, we have to solve this problem before quantum computer arrives, so as to protect our digital assets
