Why do you want to be a node? I am really interested in being a part of new projects and forming a part of the backbone of what all the new technologies are being built on. The financial incentive is obvious, but learning coding, connecting with similarly minded people is my primary focus.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? discord
Which current xx network communities are you a member of? Twitter, Telegram, Discord
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Providing a product that enhances security, encourages community and offers transparency is unlike anything I have experienced so far in the crypto market.

Why do you want to run a node in the xx network? To protect the privacy of political speech, To protect private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations, To promote quantum secure distributed systems, To earn xx coins, To contribute to a promising project, To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy, To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? a decentralized network is not housed/monitored/controlled by a minority, it is a collection of works from a broad spectrum of people. Distributed networks are run by a selection of people and corporations for which we are allowed to take part for a price. I sit on the fence, I am a part of what exists while encouraging and investing in a part of what comes next

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? Quantum computers allow for computational power that is beyond that which could be achieved in a decentralised system. It compromises our identity, our safety and our lifestyle
