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? Atrocities are done all days with "legal" and traceable money. People who want to hide to do bad things will always find a way. With xx though, by turning privacy on by default in people's life, it would reduce power of current governments and increase freedom of everyone.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? The biggest wealth a decentralized system can give us is its credibility while keeping multiple individuals in a network. Quantum computers would destroy it really quick if they managed to achieve enough qubits. Centralized systems in other hand could be weaker, but would recover faster than decentralized systems as they have a huge support from establishment. Quantum computers are becoming a serious treat for crypto and all its attack surfaces should be hardened asap
