Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. $4-9
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 89
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 Mobile
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 deployed Chia mining machine in data center before
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? We are in an era of Internet explosion, all kinds of software need to read the user's personal privacy information, which leads to our privacy to be exposed on the network. I hope to protect our privacy by becoming a node of XX network
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 very interested in XX network to protect user privacy
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? nest
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? All meetings of Shanghai blockchain week, Chengdu blockchain conference, etc
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. I will set up nodes every month, then review and so on. I need to be a node before I can arrange it
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 decentralized network, each node operates independently and maintains together, unlike centralized network, which is established and maintained by companies, institutions or organizations. So decentralized network can achieve privacy control and the same voting rights. So I'm optimistic about decentralized networks
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. I personally think XX network is a blockchain network that can fight against quantum computers, because XX network realizes the privacy protection of users' metadata for the first time, and constructs a privacy network integrating performance and security from the underlying network. I think XX network 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? Now the main networks are basically controlled by big Internet companies. Big data brings them huge profits. It is impossible for them to give up self-restraint of economic interests to protect users' privacy. In my opinion, privacy should be controlled by everyone. At present, this problem can only be realized on the decentralized network, so XX network is born.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? We don't know when quantum computer will come. We need to take measures before then. We need a decentralized system that can protect our digital assets from quantum computer attacks. Decentralized system is based on public key and private key encryption system, which is easy to be cracked by quantum computer. However, centralized system rarely uses public key and private key encryption system, so it is not affected by this.

Doubtful, but can try

Another with remarkably similar answers to a lot of the questions???
