After receiving over 230 applications from 50 countries in only 8 days, the xx network BetaNet Node Team along with our community has reviewed and narrowed down the list to a final 114 nodes.

As with everything xx network does, we encouraged the community to offer their input on our initial selection and provide us with their invaluable feedback. Applications remained open to a second period of public comment on the xx forum, step 5 of our accelerated democratic process, as described here.

This is a crucial step in our process, as it allowed us to ask for clarification on incomplete applications where we had found potential, but were not included in the initial list. We were able to reach out to applicants and ask them to provide us with further information and upon additional consideration of their answers and their experience, we made the decision to accept 5 more nodes into the final list. 

We are happy to announce that the final Violet Group selection consists of nodes in 47 countries around the world, distributed in 8 geographic bins: Americas, Western Europe, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, Russia and Asia. 

You can find the final list of selected nodes here. To join the conversation, join the BetaNet Forum or the Discord.

Next steps for the Violet group

Registration for the Violet group is now officially open! We invite chosen applicants to join our node registration along with the previously selected White, Teal and Blue groups. Register today as spots are still first come first serve for the first 200.  You can find additional information on how to register your node at xx.network/nodes

After registration the next step will be building the node. We have outlined the necessary information in a blog post which can be found here. We will then provide additional information on how to set up the node in the coming weeks. 

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the application process for their continuous commitment to our project. We cannot wait for you to be a part of our exciting next chapter, the beginning of our BetaNet! 

For those of you who did not make it and still want to be an xx network BetaNet node, there will be more opportunities to do so in the near future. Keep following our social media channels for further updates!
