For which networks have you ever operated a node?
  • Other (please specify): Vega, Fei Project, ECO project
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? Fast transactions are our everything. This is the only way to stay competitive as a platform. Also minimize gas prices and fees.
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? Absolutely none.
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 730
What is the maximum download bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 650
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. $0,3 kW/h
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 90
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). OVH
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. No
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)? AMD Ryzen 5 5600GE, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, 64GB RAM, SSD Seagate BarraCuda 510 1TB
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 seems to me extra awesome and successful in the future, so I have a great desire to help test the network.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Well, I want to join the community of the project, to become a full validator. I am interested most of all in the testnet and possible challenges associated with it. I think that in the process of participation I will learn a lot about this network, hardware, technology and nodes.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Not yet. Now I want to become an active member of your community.
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. 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? In a decentralized network, all calculations and workloads are distributed among a fairly large number of nodes or computers. In such a system, no one relies on a single central computer. In fact, each node is central because it makes its own decisions and communicates independently with others on the network. Decentralized networks have increased flexibility, scalability, faster performance, enhanced privacy.
    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. The xx network is a platform where decentralization will be 100% implemented. All processes on the network are randomized as much as possible, even the set of validators. A sample voting process is built into the network to ensure fairness and transparency, and to prevent unscrupulous users from entering the system. The xx platform has innovative solutions for privacy, performance, anonymity, and security issues.
    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? The total control of users' personal lives and interests must stop. It's the ultimate crime.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? For this reason, they will remain in operation, while the centralized networks may disappear.
