      • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world

      • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
      What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? If decentralized networks are not under the influence by big parties, it is the only way to go. Of course I am on the side of decentralization, as a true democracy can only exist like that
      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. Metadata shredding and quantum computing resistance. Those are for me the biggest plusses. And other entities doesn't provide that.
      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= free speech.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Since they have unbelievable calculating power, it will be ,and maybe is already, just a matter of time before everything can be read and seen by whoever wants to.

      I don’t think Ziggo offers 500 mbit up and down. Their upload is 50 mbit, which will be a problem.
      I’ve had the same issue and needed to change to fibre and another ISP (XS4ALL).
      So please check what is possible in Ede.
      If you can get the required bandwidth, you have my support !

      Also, you need to upgrade to 1TB NVME

      Agreed with above…if you can get the require bandwidth you have my support.

      Hi there, thank you for the response.
      Yes, the hard disc will be upgraded. Internet will be also upgraded, i am waiting for some offerts about glas fiber.

      Has my vote then for the final selection.
