Reminder to all - the first step of our BetaNet Node Selection process, the node questionnaire, will close at 11:59pm EST tonight. The Elixxir BetaNet Node Selection Process has been designed to heavily reflect community feedback and preferences. As we draw to the end of this first step, we want to make sure as many voices from the community as possible are heard.

The questionnaire is very straightforward, and shouldn't take more than a few minutes for you to complete if interested

Specific answers to the questionnaire will be kept anonymous, but participation will be public, and completion of the questionnaire will be considered favorably during the remaining steps in the selection process

We've written a longer-form explanation regarding this community-driven, open selection process which details our inspiration for the selection methodology as well as some commentary on our goals for this process.

Please read that here on our Medium:

Elixxir is happy to announce our BetaNet Node bounty program ending April 19th 2019!

The Elixxir BetaNet bounty program is intended to reward successful Node Referrals.

When an Elixxir BetaNet node application is submitted, the applicant will receive an email with a Referral Code which will be used to keep track of the applicant’s progress. This Referral Code can be given to new applicants in the process of applying.

You can find out more information here: https://elixxir.io/blog/betanet-node-bounty-program
