    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 help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
    • 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 something that cannot be controlled by any one entity but instead, every node in the network makes its own decisions and combined that creates the outcome of the system. Distributed nodes apply consensus protocols to agree on the same the thing I like decentralization because it allows more privacy and is better suited for today's age of privacy issues
    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. the xx-network differs from other current blockchain solutions with the decentralized network, which solves many privacy issues with centralized networks while also dealing with the quantum issue.
    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? privacy by default is Absaloutly critical for the future of the internet and the future of the world because the government and big corporations are able to gather so much information on us and use it for profit while the rest of us have zero privacy, I don't like the idea that these people in power are able to know everything about us bc of their centralized networks. the more information is gathered on the people the more the government and larger companies grow in power.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? there's nothing that can stop quantum computing system from taking our information without a system in place to counter it and keep our information safe.
