  • 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 improve how to protect user privacy
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? NO
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? 85
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. Within $6
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 87
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. I'm sure I won't do that
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? When I invested in bitcoin miner and Ethereum miner, most of the servers were deployed, debugged and installed by me in the data center
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? No
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? As a node, I can have a better chance to understand XX network, and I also have the ability to ensure the normal operation of the node
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
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? The ultimate goal of XX network and the contribution of XX network to the future decentralization
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)? Beijing 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 am able to maintain the node, issue documents for the node, entry review, etc
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 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? The real right of centralized network is in the hands of institutions or organizations, while decentralized network is controlled by everyone and can achieve fair and equal voting rights. As for data privacy, the data privacy of centralized network can not be regulated in the hands of institutions or organizations, while the data privacy of decentralized network is controlled by the participants themselves. I'm more in favor of 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. XX network is a blockchain network which constructs a high performance and high security privacy network from the bottom to fight against quantum computer. Moreover, it will realize value transmission and contract only on the network, which can be regarded as the future decentralized infrastructure, and now XX messenger 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? Now the network is controlled by institutions, and the privacy data is in their hands, and the privacy should be owned and controlled by everyone. It is impossible for organizations to give up the economic benefits brought by private data and self-discipline well. This problem can be realized on the decentralized network, and the purpose of XX network is this
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Because the decentralized system uses the public key private key encryption system, the quantum computer can be easily cracked. Once cracked, the existing public chain will be almost destroyed. We have to find a decentralized system that can resist the attack of quantum computer before quantum computer comes. Most of the centralized systems do not use this system, all the impact is relatively small, and there will be many solutions
