I´m adding more answers to the questions…
Why do you want to be a node?
I want to be part of a community of nodes within which we can learn together on how does it work in theory and practice. I want to understand how a distributed system works, and apply its connect to other fields of life and work. I also believe this project will be very successful, so it will also have an economical benefit.

What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform?
I like the fact that it is David Chaum´s and his team initiative. I have a close friend whom I trust very much who has studied Chaum´s work and this platform. He decided to join it and invited me to participate. We´ve been learning about Chaum´s work for our investigation in distribution of power in politics.

What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
I understand that a decentralized network, it´s a network that have several nodes, not just one. And a Distributed node, may end up not having nodes. Communication could be direct, without having to communicate through a node. I like decentralized organizations, and decentralized power.
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. From what I have understand, it helps to give more people and groups of people a more direct access to the benefits (power, wealth, etc.) that other networks provide.
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? I think is critical in order to keep our freedom. If we dont have privacy (and this can get to all fields of your life) we can lose the power and the level of consciousness that all human beings should have and evolve. Also I trust David Chaum´s work and prestige in this field; he´s done a tremendous work to protect privacy.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?
To be honest I don´t know about quantum computers. I guess that they can get more easily to computers´data, with the risk of gaining control and centralizing power again. Again, here I trust my friend´s criteria and knowledge on the field.

Hi @tinux I am a she… :wink:

hola buenos dias
hola me llamo Fernando y estoy interesado en formar parte del proyecto soy de España
y estaria interesado en poder tener nodo y asi ser parte de la comunidad.
estoy siguiendo el proyecto hace varios años pero tube un ataque haker a mis dispositivos y perdi la informacion.
dispongo de un ordenador
MSI portatil
i7-8750H con NVIDA Geforce RTX2080/8GB GDDR6
!TB 7200RPM + 512G SSD
RAM 16GB
querria saber si es suficiente para tener un masternodo y cuando podria comprar las monedas suficientes para tener dicho masternodo.
un saludo

Hello Nando,
