Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 0.089kwh
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 88
In what type of environment would this server be located? University / Academic Institution
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). China Unicom
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'm not going to do that
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? Before I was engaged in fund investment, I worked in data service center, familiar with server deployment and maintenance
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Yes, I have prepared the configuration required in the XX network white paper. If the hardware requirements change, I can also configure it in the fastest personal leave
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 think XX network node is a very important infrastructure for future Internet users' privacy protection. I need to be a node to personally verify this matter in the operation area, so as to enhance my understanding of the future and improve how to better protect users' privacy
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Facebook
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 how to protect the privacy and security of XX network users
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? NEST,BZZ
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Shenzhen blockchain summit conference, Sichuan 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, microblog, 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'll set up the nodes, update twitter and have a mid-term review of the running nodes
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 the centralized network, all the data are controlled by the centralized organization, while in the decentralized network, they can own their own data. Centralized network nodes are maintained and managed by institutions or organizations. Decentralized network nodes operate independently, so decentralized network is more stable.
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 will realize high-performance and secure privacy network, and realize value transmission, smart contract and so on. As the infrastructure of the future decentralized society, XX network is the first time to protect the privacy of user metadata, and now XX message can be used.
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? Since the birth of the Internet, private data has been controlled by large Internet companies, but it is difficult for individuals to control their own private data. This is the drawback of centralized network. We can't control our own private data freely. The only way to achieve this goal is on the decentralized network, which is also the real goal of XX network. It is more efficient and secure to solve the problem from the bottom network than in the application level.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? The reason why quantum computer can easily crack the decentralized system is that the decentralized system uses the public key private key encryption system, so if quantum computer breaks the decentralized system, it may lead to the destruction of most public chains. The centralized system is not a public key private key encryption system, so quantum computer has little influence on the centralized system. If we want to protect our digital assets from quantum computer attacks, we have to find a decentralized system that can resist quantum computer attacks.
