Node Country Russia
For which networks Have you ever operated a node? QuarkChain, NKN, BLOCK COLLIDER, harmony, nucypher, keep-network
What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? The main thing is that there was a good feedback and that technical specialists were in touch, since problems arose different and even Python programmers could not solve everything.
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? I missed the last registration to participate in testing and I believe that I am confident that I will be able to successfully launch the node and be an active participant in the test network.
What is a reasonable uptime estimate you can provide for your BetaNet node? 98
Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. In my case electricity is almost free
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 100
Connection speed 40Mbps
In what type of environment would this server be located? Personal Home
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)?
Specs Yes I have a personal computer based on AMD Risen 7 2700x
Why do you want to be a node? I try to participate in testing the most promising projects and xx network I could not miss.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? Telegram
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? A fresh and very interesting idea and approach. I am sure that the result will be positive.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? I read a lot of information sources where developers communicate and discuss their test networks,but I write very little, since I do everything in practice.
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? I have attended several conferences in Russia, but they are not world-wide.
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: Group messaging curation: Perfect_ICO
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. Yes, I am very happy to shoot a video of how to start a network node and maintain it, and I am also ready to release a video every 2 weeks if there is a need for these two videos.
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 private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations, To promote quantum secure distributed systems, To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world, To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
Other Reasons
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? In a distributed system there are several chat servers. Each client connects to one of these servers and servers, and then passes the data to each other to give the correct result to the user, as well as deliver the message to another user (who is also connected to this distributed system). So this can easily be done with a single server, but what about load and resource balancing? Not only do we go for distributed projects: sharing resources scalability high availability Although in the same example, a chat system that is decentralized relies on its own users to make peer-to-peer connections with each other and then send a message. Each node has all the logic for servicing the messaging service and for sending messages. There is no intermediary, is responsible for the delivery of messages or their storage.
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. This is a kind of collaboration that includes interesting solutions using metadata across messaging, payments, and transactions on a global scale.
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 very important in today's world, from payments and the preservation of any value to freedom of expression.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I believe that quantum computers can be dangerous for centralized systems, because with their power, you can do a lot of unexpected operations or other actions that can affect the network. Also, this kind of computers can serve the network and this network will no longer be decentralized.

Potential application. I recommend this.

It’s a no because of your bandwith change this to a minimum of 100mbps if you use a separate gateway and node or otherwise minimum of 150mbps upload than I would reconsider .

No. Your application is good, but unfortunately your internet is too slow.

No hardware specs, so a No from me, unless you can answer that question in the comments sections here; I don’t think it would be a huge deal to check again the requirements and consider a contract with u’r ISP that will provide sufficient bandwith. I really like the fact that you took the time to answer those questions at the end, so don’t give up because what might have been a small misunderstanding Revised BetaNet Node Hardware Requirements
