Node Announcements

Elixxir led by renowned cryptographer David Chaum, today announced the launch of the xx network public alpha. Maintained by a team of nodes run by independent operators, the xx network public alpha represents the first public demonstration of cMix, the pioneering transaction network that shreds metadata and provides unprecedented consumer privacy and security.
Join Elixxir in our Developer Lounge for light fare and exclusive access to content for the xx network alpha, the first of its kind utilizing Elixxir’s mix network technology to protect metadata generated by the user while also providing end-to-end encryption of content. Benjamin Wenger, the software architect of the Elixxir network, will be available to answer technical questions pertaining to the network and the Arrow SDK program, which is currently open to applications from developers interested in the Elixxir technology. Kate Victoria, the lead of the Elixxir dApp projects, will also be on hand to discuss how Elixxir is implementing the technology on mobile.
Today marks an important milestone for Elixxir, reached with the help of the wider Elixxir community. Thank you to everyone who submitted a questionnaire, applied to run a node, and participated in the Node Forum. We are honored by your support, and motivated to pursue the Elixxir vision laid out by David Chaum, our Founder and CEO.
Step 5 of Elixxir’s BetaNet node selection is here! Today we are publishing an initial selection of node applications for the Elixxir BetaNet, for public review and feedback. You can view the list of selected nodes published to the Node Forum. Following the timeline we laid out in January, this is our “rough draft” of node applications that we believe represent strong candidates to run the BetaNet. Now we want input from you, the members of the Elixxir community, on our selections.
Step 4 of Elixxir BetaNet node selection is here! We have been completely blown away by the level of interest, with 870 applications submitted from 80 countries. We have reviewed the applications, and are now ready and eager for you to participate and make your voice heard in this next step of the BetaNet node selection process. All anonymized applications are now available on our new Node Forum!
The Elixxir BetaNet bounty program is intended to reward Successful Node Referrals, which are defined as:Referring an applicant who runs a BetaNet node that meets minimum participation requirements to be specified for the Initial Term (as defined in the Beta Testing Agreement Terms & Conditions) of the BetaNet.
The opening of our questionnaire marks the first of many steps toward MainNet rollout of the Elixxir platform. If you are a member of our Node Community, or have seen our Press Release, you will have read on Friday that the selection of our initial BetaNet Nodes is a 6 Step process that is “driven by the community”.
