For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Other (please specify): XCH, BZZ, etc
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? For example, many of the nodes I operate now speak very well before going online. As a result, many things are unstable after going online. I hope XX network can go online after passing the stability test instead of rushing online
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? NO
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? 91
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? Personal Home
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). China Telecom
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 put it in my own warehouse
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? Before I became a full-time node operator, I was doing computer room operation and maintenance in China Unicom 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? I learned from the white paper of XX network that XX network is a blockchain that can resist quantum computers in the future, and can realize the privacy protection of user metadata. I'm very interested in this. I want to grow and witness together by becoming a 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? Protect user privacy from metadata and be able to fight against quantum computers in the future
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? XCH,BZZ
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Shenzhen Cross Chain Conference, etc
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 official account, WeChat community
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 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 think the biggest difference between centralized network and decentralized network is the user's right to use it. Decentralized network participants have equal rights and the right to use personal data Centralized network can not do this, because they have unified company organization to start operation and maintenance
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. On this issue, I personally believe that the privacy protection of user metadata has been realized for the first time in the history of XX network. The purpose of XX network is to resist quantum computers in the future, and now xxmessenger is already in use. XX network should be able to say a large part of the improvement of network security, currency security and privacy security
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? Privacy is important to everyone. Nowadays, with the rapid development of the Internet, the problem of personal privacy has always been unable to be solved in the central network. Decentralized network can solve this problem well and return the right of privacy to everyone. As long as the problem of privacy and security is completely solved, the development of centralized network is the trend of Internet in the future
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? One of the biggest influences of quantum computer on global information security is the security of digital signature certificate. The scattered network is easy to crack, which may lead to the destruction of the current mainstream blockchain. And the centralized network has more countermeasures than the distributed network. If we have not found a blockchain that can protect our digital assets from being aggregated before the arrival of quantum computers, it will be fatal to the whole digital currency ecosystem
