Node Country China
For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • EOS
  • Ethereum (ETH, ETC, etc)
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? I hope XX can really solve the problem of data privacy, because many people in my circle have been hacked from digital assets
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? In my opinion, there is no problem for the time being
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? 86
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. Within $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?` 90
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 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 don't host servers in the data center
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? I am in the data center as the computer room operation and maintenance
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? I have configured the equipment strictly according to XX official requirements
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? With my ability and circle, I believe that after I become a node, I can maintain the node and publicize XX network in the circle
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Facebook
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Token of XX network and its influence on future decentralized network
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? BZZ
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? I have attended, such as encryption digital conference, Hangzhou blockchain summit, 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 can set up the node and maintain it in the middle of the operation. I can also do induction review when I have 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 allow everyone to vote, but fairly. Centralized networks cannot do that. I really like decentralized networks. Each node of decentralized network runs independently and maintains together. The central network node is initiated and maintained by the organization, which is more stable than that of the centralized network.
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. In order to fight against quantum computer, XX network has constructed a high-performance and high-security privacy network from the underlying network, which can realize value transmission, smart contract, MPC and so on. It is also the first time to realize the privacy protection of user's metadata.
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? Only in the underlying network to solve privacy protection is better than in other aspects. As the current network is controlled by Internet companies, it is basically impossible for us to protect data privacy. Privacy should be everyone's right, but this is just opposite to the centralized network, which can only be realized on the decentralized network, which is also the purpose of XX network
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computer will not have a great influence on the centralized system. After all, the centralized system does not use public key private key encryption system, so there are many solutions. But the decentralized system is not good, it is easy to be cracked by quantum computer, which may lead to the destruction of most of the existing public chain. Before the advent of quantum computers, we can only find a decentralized system that can protect our digital assets from attack.
