Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 0.11 USD per kWh
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 85
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). Orange
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)? Intel Core i9-9900K, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 64 GB, Aorus Gen4 SSD 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? I believe that cryptography is our future. Right now, however, there are many questions about it among ordinary people, which is why it cannot become popular enough. By contributing to a worthy project, I increase that trust.
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? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? As there is now a global problem of anonymity on the internet, I was interested in the platform because it can provide that anonymity.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Mina, Solana, Manta Network
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? Decentralized systems are beneficial in that they can exist without a central control body.
    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. It is a secure environment that allows users to communicate without worrying about their anonymity and privacy. The network also solves the problems of low speed, poor performance, insufficient scalability and decentralization.
    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? Personal data is what defines me as a person. If they are stolen, there is a chance that my identity will be altered and compromised. I will get into trouble.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? The threat of hacking and data disclosure.

    This application is the same as the previous one. If you weren’t accepted the last time, then why would you post the same one??


    Last time there were no complaints about my application from users, so I published it as is

    Not bad

    Nice form, but I would like to see a more detailed answer to the last question

    Okay. I will try to give a more detailed answer.
    Centralized systems have very little chance to fight back against the computing power of a quantum computer. Even the most secure of them couldn’t. I de-centralized ones have a much better chance, but there is also a risk. For example public keys, they are subject to this risk.

    You were voting for yourself on September 4th :thinking:
