    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. still not sure, tell me i can learn fast ^^
    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 people need to trust that there is a privacy, at this time to much protocoll writing about who when where was online and did what....terrible
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

    Bandwidth needs to improve.

    A yes from me, good application!

    Unfortunately, I cannot support the application with the current bandwidth 7Mbps up and 30 Mbps down is too slow.
    If this can be raised to meet the minimum recommended spec then I would happily support your application.

    Excellent applicant.

    I also think his/her commitment to more bandwidth has to be up’d

    Can you upgrade your bandwith?
