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 value is indicated in the answer options in question 36. In my opinion, the main difference from most projects is real democracy and not profit.
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 not only of the Internet. Corporations allow themselves too much. I want people to choose how the information will be used. Privacy will allow people to express their opinions without fear.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Unfortunately, I am not an expert in this area. I think quantum computers will be able to break most of the ciphers in existence today. This is a privacy threat. They are also very powerful and can only be owned by corporations.
