For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • EOS
  • Bitcoin (BTC, BCH, etc)
  • Ethereum (ETH, ETC, etc)
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? The XX network I know will be able to solve the problem of user data privacy in the future. I hope to make more improvements on this network in order to really protect privacy
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? I don't think that's going to happen
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? 90
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 0.1kwh
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 93
In what type of environment would this server be located? University / Academic Institution
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 set up the server in the data center, I'll set it up in my school lab
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? In my spare time, I will help some friends in coin circle and mining circle to solve server problems, and sometimes I am invited by the data center to help solve problems
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? I haven't prepared the hardware yet, because I haven't become a node yet. If I become a node, I will configure it according to the official requirements at the first time (even higher than the 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? As an IT staff, I am well aware of the development trend of the Internet in the future and people's desire to control their own private data. I think there are three reasons why I want to be a node. First: I have enough professional knowledge to build the maintenance node, so that it can run normally Second: after I learned about the future goal of XX network, I had a very strong interest. As a node, I can better evaluate whether the XX network node can really achieve the goal mentioned in the white paper Third: if XX network can do what is said in the white paper, instead of giving up halfway, and find any problems are trying to solve instead of choosing to escape, with my circle of friends, I can well publicize XX network and let more people join.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Can truly achieve user privacy protection and future development
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? BTC.DOT
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? I attended too many blockchain meetings, almost every one
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 have worked as a WeChat official account and a WeChat community, but I don't have much time to take care of them because of my working relationship.
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. My plan will be arranged according to the actual situation. I will not promise anything that I may not be able to do before I have the actual operation.
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 help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
  • 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 network is more stable and secure than centralized network. The disadvantage of centralized network is that all network information is controlled by centralized institutions or organizations. And decentralization is running separately. So I'm 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. XX network aims to build a new generation network which can protect the privacy of users and resist the threat of quantum computing in the future. XX network is composed of several modules, the core of which is elixxir privacy network module based on cmix technology, and praxxis blockchain module for consensus accounting, value transfer and incentive of nodes on decentralized network. In addition to the above two core modules, there are also xxdx module for application development and xxmpc module for multi-party security computing, As well as the chat tool XX messenger software.
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? The existing main networks are controlled by large companies. It is almost impossible for them to give up their economic benefits and protect the data privacy of users through self-restraint. Privacy should be owned and controlled by everyone. This requirement is contradictory to the current structure of the centralized network, which can only be realized on decentralized network. The purpose of xxnetwork is exactly this.
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 computing on global information security is the security of digital signature certificate, which is now widely used. XX network adopts the method of "breaking up the jigsaw puzzle" in the process of certificate transmission, which makes the certificate transmission process traceless, makes quantum computing unable to crack the signature, and ensures the security of value data. According to the above, we know that the decentralized system is built on the public key private key encryption system, and the quantum computer can easily crack it, which may lead to the destruction of the whole decentralized network Centralized system rarely uses this encryption system, so there are many solutions for centralized system
