Specs Ryzen 5 3600X, RTX 2070, 32G memory, ssd 1T
Why do you want to be a node? I am interested in this new technology, I am used with hardware and settings. I would like to be a part of this process. I have time to spend for it.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? A friend of mine already has a XXcoins note.
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? Discord
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Because it's Quantum resistant , I would like to help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world, and to contribute to a promising project
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? No
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? No

Why do you want to run a node in the xx network? To promote quantum secure distributed systems, To earn xx coins, To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world, To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A distributed network is governed by a defined and central organisation. A decentralised network is managed by a community without any central body of control.
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's quantum resistant. Developped by David Chaum.
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?
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I think they could be able to entirely compromise existing cryptography based platforms.
