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 just hope XX network can really achieve what the white paper says
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? There is nothing 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? 87
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. Within $8
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 91
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'm not going to do that
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? When I invested in the Chia project, I deployed the server in the data service center myself
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? I prepare hardware equipment according to the highest official standard of XX network
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? Because I want to protect user data privacy, not just talk about it, but there are real applications or people working hard for it and can achieve it. So I want to know the specific direction of XX network through nodes, so that I can fight for this better
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? XX network can really solve the problem of user data privacy
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? BZZ node
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Shanghai blockchain conference, 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: micro-blog
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 am willing to create content for XX network and nodes and actively participate in it, and also set up and maintain 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? Decentralized networks give each participant a truly fair vote, and privacy and data are basically owned by individuals, unlike centralized networks, which are controlled by institutions. The nodes of decentralized network operate independently, and the centralized network is started and maintained by the organization. So decentralized networks are more stable. So I'm more 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. According to the official statement of XX network, XX network is an anti quantum computer blockchain. XX network is also the first time to protect the user's metadata privacy. XX network is the infrastructure of the future decentralized society
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 by solving the problem of privacy protection from the root can we really protect privacy, which XX network should be able to do well. Privacy should be owned and controlled by individuals, which is just in contradiction with the centralized network. To achieve this, it is only on the decentralized network
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computer attacks by cracking the public key private key encryption system, so the decentralized network using the public key private key encryption system is very vulnerable, so if attacked, most of the existing public chains may be destroyed. Most centralized networks do not use this encryption system, so the impact will not be great, and there are many solutions for centralized systems. We have to find a decentralized system that can protect our assets from attack before quantum computers come out.

When you provide proof of equipment, you will receive a vote.
