What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? There are many areas that need to be improved. I am eager to improve privacy protection
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? I don't think there will be problems before the operation is started. Only in the process of operation will problems be found
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 600
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 900
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 91
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. $2-6
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 92
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 know, so I'm not going to do that
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? Help customers debug and install BTC, ETH, Chia and other mining machine servers in the data center
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? The reason why I want to be a node is to know how XX network realizes its future vision and mission. I hope to be one of the witnesses and work together for it
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? The vision and mission of XX network, as well as its influence on the future centralized society
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? BTC,ETH,EOS,NEST,BZZ,etc
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? I can only say that there are many blockchain conferences in China that you may not have heard of
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 tiktok, micro-blog, jitter, etc.
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'm not sure for the moment, but I can basically do what I said above after becoming a node
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? Decentralization has higher equality of rights than centralization. Every individual is not only a participant, but also a governor. What he stresses is equality, CO governance and contract. Distributed storage has higher security than centralized storage. Centralized storage is easy to lose data, and the network speed is slow, but the cooperation efficiency of all nodes is high, because the nodes are centralized, and the distributed nodes are scattered all over the world, the access speed is fast, and the data is not easy to lose, but it is inefficient to coordinate all nodes. 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 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 is composed of multiple modules, praxxis a block chain, which is used to provide consensus accounting, value transmission and incentive for the network. Xxmessage R is a peer-to-peer private chat tool based on XX network components. Because cmix technology is adopted, the delay of users in chat is extremely millisecond.
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? Since human beings entered the Internet era, the issue of privacy has been controversial. Because now the Internet is in the hands of big companies, and as long as we have used Internet products, all our private data will also be in their hands. These data cannot be regulated by their own constraints or legal means. After all, these data can bring them huge economic benefits. This is also a drawback of centralized network. But the same problem can be solved in decentralized networks
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computing poses a threat to the existence of asymmetric cryptographic algorithms such as RSA and ECC, which are actually the basis of all current Internet security. Obviously, most of the centralized systems are not public key private key encryption systems, so there are many solutions. If we can not find a good solution before the arrival of quantum computer, it may be a devastating blow to the existing public chain

Finally a application which looks fine :+1:
