For which networks have you ever operated a node?
    What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? I have no other experience. So any suggestions would futile.
    What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? None
    What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 500 but can be increased if need be.
    What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 500 but can be increased if need be.
    What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 95
    Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. Approx. 10 cents per KWh
    On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 15
    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). Bell Fiber
    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.
    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)? I do not. However, if selected I would purchase sufficient hardware. Such as: MSI MPG X570 MOBO, AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, G.Skill 32gb ddr4 ram, Corsair MP600 pro 2tb, EVGA Geforce RTX 3070 XC3.
    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? After I was told about this project and researching further, I have come to realize how important of a project this is. In fact, it has gotten me extremely excited. Therefore would love to be a part of this. I feel that any sort of contribution I could make in order to help the network grow would benefit us all.
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • Twitter
    • Telegram
    • Discord
    Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The underlining technology and what it actually stands for. Additionally, I have found very few projects that when come mainnet actually have a working product. XX-Network seems to have leading edge of technology that is quantum resistant.. Adding my node will provide more dentralized and more stable network for overall.
    Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Unfortunately no I am not. I am hoping this to be the first!
    Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? No
    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:
      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 not sure what but certainly would be willing to if asked.
      Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? No
      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? In decentralized networks there have governance controlled by a single point or group. Whereas distributed networks have no centralized body. Decentralization should be our path to the future.
      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. People's digitall privicy, full and true decentralization with the ease of use. Fast and linear blockchain protocol while keeping user data and metadata protected. All the while being quantum resistant.
      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? Right now there is so much infringement upon our individual rights and privacy…it’s frightening. Privacy should be our right and our freedom to make this decision as individuals. Not by government, corps or other individuals or entities!
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers could be a major issue if we do not prepare for it. It is one of the reasons I am drawn to this project.

      All is good :+1:
      Hope you take a second nvme drive for the gateway database or another computer :wink:

      Too bad you don’t have the proper hardware right now, I hope you’ll really buy it later. It’s a good application form :+1:
