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? XX network has the latest encryption communication technology, high security encryption currency, and can truly protect the privacy and security of users. I think I become a node after a lot of things have no worries, can safely operate the node
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Governance, money and encrypted communication technology
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? BTC
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? All blockchain meetings in the wet season of China's blockchain
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 management
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. Node setting and entry review of vlog posts, updating Twitter every two weeks, mid-term review of the ongoing node operation process, 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 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 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? Decentralized network is distributed, each network node can run independently, which makes the stability, transparency and fairness of decentralized network incomparable Centralized network is started, operated and maintained by a certain network company, organization or organization, which makes users unable to use their own rights. Stability, transparency and fairness are poor. And many things can't be restricted and regulated by law and other factors. I'm very supportive 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 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. 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 needs large-scale nodes to participate in the hybrid computing of the network. The more high-quality nodes, the better network security and privacy protection, and the stronger anti quantum ability 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? We are now in the era of rapid development of the Internet, as long as people who have connected to the Internet can not escape big data, in the premise of big data, our personal privacy in the network is transparent. And our privacy data is constantly bringing huge economic benefits to these Internet companies. It is impossible for them to give up their interests and protect our private data through laws or self-discipline. Although it has improved our lives, the disadvantages brought by the centralized network make us creepy. The only way to protect users' privacy and control their own privacy data is 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 computing on global information security is the security of digital signature certificate, which is now widely used. Nowadays, the public key private key encryption system is used in the decentralized system. Quantum computer can easily crack it, which has a great impact on the existing blockchain public chains and may even destroy most of the existing public chains. Public key private key encryption system is rarely used in centralized system, so there are more schemes against quantum computer in centralized system. It's only a matter of time before quantum computers come, and what we can do is to find a blockchain that can protect our digital assets before quantum computers come

Need clarifications on hardware, not a simple copy paste
