For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Other (please specify): Agoric, Thorchain, Spacemesh, Moonbeam, Swarm, Solana, Radicle, Manta Network
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? Probably so that the selection of nodes is done more carefully. After all, we are all dependent on each other on the network.
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? I'm sure everything will go smoothly.
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 500
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 400
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 95
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 0.65 USD
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 85
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). Bit
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? No
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Seagate FireCuda 520 1TB, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, 64RAM, AMD Ryzen 5 3600x
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'm just interested in doing it. Besides, it brings a lot of value to the project.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Telegram
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Honestly, I'm most excited about the quantum secure consensus protocol. I don't know where it was before, but this technology will solve most of the problems of modern blockchains.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Agoric, Thorchain, Spacemesh, Moonbeam, Swarm, Solana, Radicle, Manta Network
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Not yet
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:
    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. No
    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 are more secure because they work on a "trust no one" basis and use a consensus mechanism where the rules are unbreakable and the data is encrypted. Distributed networks have a central point of control that you have to trust because there is no other choice. Such a system leads to many errors because responsibility is not shared evenly and rules can easily be broken.
    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 offers its users quantum secure hash-based cryptography, capable of scaling linearly, digital cash, complete privacy, the opportunity to participate directly in the governance of the network. Most significantly, the platform uses mechanisms that will never allow anyone to consolidate power by concentrated token distributions.
    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? Without privacy by default, there will be no internet of the future. It will remain at the old level of development. To ensure the development, it is necessary to change the whole system, not just one part. That is, you cannot, for example, provide decentralization without privacy and security. All components are interconnected and only work within the system.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I could assume the threat would appear. The computing power of a quantum computer knows no bounds.
