On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 89
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 won't put it in the data center
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? No
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? ●Modern High-End Consumer grade CPU (8 physical/16 logical cores)● 32GB RAM●1TB SSD storage● Mid-Range modern GPU with 32-bit Mul Units (Example: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 or RTX 3060Ti)●100Mbps internet connection ● Modern Medium/Low-End Consumer grade CPU (2 physical/4 logical cores)● 4GB RAM● 256 GB SSD storage● 100Mbps internet connection
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 far as I know, XX network aims to build a new generation network that can protect the privacy and security of users and resist the threat of quantum computers in the future. I want to be a node to better understand the specific operation mode of XX network and evaluate whether it can really protect the privacy and security of users
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Telegram
Are you an active member of those communities?
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? How to protect user privacy
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? NEST、DOT
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? China blockchain conference is attended every year
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: I own my WeChat community and WeChat official account. My community has 1000+ fans.
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 think I can update twitter or Facebook regularly, build and maintain nodes, and I can promote XX network nodes 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? I firmly support decentralized networks. Now although the centralized network is the mainstream, the disadvantages of the centralized network are more and more obvious, such as the user privacy can not be guaranteed, people can not vote fairly and so on And decentralized network is the trend of future development, although it is not perfect now. But now some functions have been realized, and the decentralized network is distributed and maintained by all participants. So compared with centralized network, decentralization 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 aims to build a new generation network which can protect the privacy of users and resist the threat of quantum computer in the future.
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? Nowadays, the mainstream networks are all centralized networks. The disadvantage of centralized networks is that users can't own and control private data. And these data cannot be protected by law or other means. If we want to realize the self ownership and control of private data, we can only do it on the decentralized network
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? One of the biggest impacts of quantum computer on global information security is the security of digital signature certificate. The decentralized network is easy to crack, which may lead to the destruction of the current mainstream blockchain. And there are more counter measures in the centralized network than in the decentralized network, so the influence of quantum computer on the centralized network will not be great, and the influence on the centralized network may be fatal

Despite being eerily similar to some other applications from China I could support it if you can confirm the hardware specs.

Great location! To set you apart from the many other Orange XII applicants from China, I would like to suggest you, please respond to comments and or clarify the application where you deem it helpful :slight_smile:
