Hi, 100% time on a monthly basis to dedicate toward governance? Why are the last 5 questions not answered then? Those are important. Please do
Hello, since I submitted 2 applications, and after the first one I was assured that there is no point in replying again, since these answers are already in the first application
Yes, you can skip some questions as we will take your old application into consideration when making the decision.
You should just make sure to indicate the full hardware, your bandwidth, and the node location. You should also fill out any questions you had not given answers to in your previous application.
I cannot guarantee the uptime for technical reasons, but I can guarantee that the machine will run 24/7
Why do you want to run a node in the xx network?
I want to take part in a large project, to be a part of something large-scale. Have the opportunity to be one of those who will be the first to use the product in practice.
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
A distributed system is a network of stand-alone computers connected using distribution middleware. They help separate different resources and capabilities to provide users with a single and integrated, consistent network. "A decentralized system is one that requires multiple parties to make independent decisions." In such a decentralized system, there is no single centralized body that makes decisions on behalf of all parties. Instead, each party, also called a peer, makes local, autonomous decisions about their individual goals that may conflict with the interests of other peers. Peers interact directly with each other and exchange information or provide services to other peers. There are several servers in a distributed chat system. Each client connects to one of these servers and servers and then transmits data to each other to give the correct result to the user as well as deliver a message to the other user (who is also connected to this distributed system). So it can be done easily with a single server, but what about load balancing and resource balancing? Not only do we go for distributed projects, resource sharing scalability high availability
Although in the same example, a chat system that is decentralized relies on its own users to make peer-to-peer connections with each other and then send a message. Each node has all the logic for serving the messaging service and for sending messages. There is no intermediary responsible for delivering messages or storing them.
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 brings together technologies developed by Elixxir and Praxxis to create the first online platform that allows you to communicate and share value without disclosing your business to the organizations that will collect and sell your data. Although many modern communication platforms are encrypted, they do not protect metadata.
Metadata is data about data, such as who sent a message, who received it, where it was sent from, and when it was sent. When metadata is collected and analyzed, it can tell a lot about consumer behavior and can be manipulated by tech companies and governments. The xx Network is changing this by offering secure, encrypted communications and payments that completely hide metadata to offer the first truly private, anonymous, scalable and fast platform that allows you to transact with friends, family and service providers without fear of spying. brings together the technologies of two projects and teams: Elixxir and Praxxis, both led by Dr. Chaum.
Praxxis has developed a next generation quantum secure blockchain that uses a unique consensus mechanism called xxBFT, or xx consensus. After transactions are blended through Elixxir, payments are sent to independent nodes running the xx consensus protocol to be confirmed and added to the blockchain. xx network is the only blockchain-based quantum security solution that can combine the speed, scalability, and security features required for blockchain technology for mass adoption.
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?
Existing social media and payment platforms have built their businesses on personal data monetization, leading to election manipulation and personal data sale and leakage. The xx network deprives centralized organizations of the incentive and ability to abuse our data
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?
After all, blockchains and cryptocurrencies are just very large numbers used to create units of whatever currency you are considering. For example, Bitcoin relies on public key cryptography. Public key cryptography is considered one of the most vulnerable to being hacked by a quantum computer, which makes people with large Bitcoin investments sweat
