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:
Why do you want to be a node? It's a little bit more bullish
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Telegram
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? XXNetwork is the next generation of high availability, high security and high decentralization privacy network infrastructure founded by David Chaum, the globally recognized "Godfather of Cryptocurrency"
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? no
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Various blockchain conferences
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. No
    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? Decentralized networks allow everyone to vote, and people to vote equally. On a decentralized network, people have more privacy and power, and the ownership of their data is personal. The data of a centralized network is controlled and controlled by a centralized organization. In a decentralized network, each node operates independently, and a centralized network is initiated and maintained by an institution or organization. Decentralized networks are more stable. I prefer a decentralized network
    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 quantum-resistant blockchain For the first time, XX network has realized the privacy protection of users' metadata XX network constructs a high-performance, high-security privacy network at the bottom, and realizes value transmission, smart contract, MPC, etc., which is the infrastructure of the future decentralized society XX-Messager is already available
    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? It is more efficient and more secure to solve privacy protection in the bottom layer than in the application layer. The major networks are controlled by big companies, and it is almost impossible for them to forgo the financial benefits of self-policing to protect the privacy of their users' data. Privacy should be owned and controlled by everyone. This requirement is contradictory to the current structure of the centralized network and can only be realized on the decentralized network. XXNetwork is just for this purpose.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Decentralized systems are built on public-private-key crypto systems, and quantum computers can easily crack public-private-key crypto systems, all of which could destroy most of today's public chains like Bitcoin. We don't know when a quantum computer will come, but it will come, so be prepared for that day and find a decentralized system that can protect your digital assets from a quantum computer attack. Centralized systems don't all use public-private key encryption systems, so quantum computers won't have much impact on them, or centralized systems have more centralized solutions for anti-quantum computers.

    Ok application.

    Can you specify what you upload/download speeds will be? Your application says 1m, which would mean 1 Mbps and is way too slow.

    Also, will you be able to get the required hardware if you are accepted?

    you can’t be a validator if you don’t meet specs

    Bandwidth is 1m??? , hardware spec missing and VERY VERY similar answers to over 80 other applications from China (nearly word for word) :-1:
