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
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? we can clearly state that decentralized networks are a subset of distributed networks, more independent and minus any central controlling authority. A distributed system still has one central control algorithm, that takes the final call over the process and protocol to be followed
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. xx network is distributed networks. The network is dynamic, secure, and distributed, because although nodes are voted on based on their individual states, ultimately decisions are made by centralized peers. This is a distributed network.
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? because it will protect me from the danger of disclosing personal information, threatening my personal and life.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers are a major threat to both the decentralized and the centralized system. With a decentralized network it is possible to decrypt private keys, which can lead to the collapse of a decentralized system.

Can you upgrade your connection speed ?
Uptime is too low need 75% actually.

Yes, I can upgrade the connection speed, as required by the network
thank you

You then have my vote.

thank you very much

Has my vote as well.

Thank you

If you can have the minimal uptime of 75% it’s good for me :slight_smile:
