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 learned about the project at a distribution conference in San Francisco in July 2018 and have been following it for two years. Privacy protection is one of my biggest concerns. It is a great honor to be one of the earliest nodes in China.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? My friends at the San Francisco conference on Newachemy and Distribute (David Chaum speaking, but the project is not yet named)
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? More secure messaging and transactions, and hidden metadata
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? polkadot and filecoin
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Wanxiang conferences every year in Shanghai, Distribute conferences in 2018/2019, Web3 conferences in 2019/2020
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: Many contents in Chinese communities, such as wechat, blogs
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. 3-4 in Chinese
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? On a decentralized network, people have more privacy and rights, and data is owned by individuals. The data of the centralized network is controlled and controlled by the centralized organization.
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. The xx network constructs a high-performance, high-security privacy network on the bottom layer, and realizes value transmission, intelligent contract, MPC, etc. It 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? Privacy protection on the underlying network is more efficient and secure than privacy protection on the application layer.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Since not all central systems use public-private key cryptosystems, quantum computers do not have much influence on them, or central systems have more central solutions for anti-quantum computers.

It is doubtful, but it is possible to consider
