Why do you want to be a node? It is clearly that the commercial companies are misusing the metadata. Selling it for their own profit. It is time control your own data. As well it would be great to earn some coins with this great project and to be apart of this.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Like mentioned before, it is crazy that the big tech companies are selling your own information for their profit. And it is known that 'they'can read all of your personal information, if it is a message or money transfer etc. Of course you have to comply with the ruling authority but still it would be great that you are in control of your data.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)?
Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience: Community Management Other: At the company where I work we have every Friday a meeting and I am almost every time the group leader with these group discussions.
As part of growing the xx network community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an xx network BetaNet node? Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. How much content would be hard to describe for now but if I have to give a estimate it would be at least 20 hours or so.
Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? Yes
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, To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? The danger is that with distributed networks there is always a chance that they can look into your information. With a decentralized network it is distributed through the worldwide nodes. So, for the privacy and the stalibility of the network it is much better of course to have a decentralized network.
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. -Not selling the metadata which we all produce when using the internet. -Gladly that it is run by the most famous cryptographer who is truly worldwide recognized. ( THANKS DAVID!) -Quantum computer resistance -A true private messenger -It would be more then great to have a private by default platform so independent devs can add their Dapps.
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? Thinking out of the box and thus innovation stands by having true privacy. As well, if nobody has the ability to speak freely then we might be just robots. And that is actually the problem; AI is already taking over thousands of jobs worldwide.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Eg: Maybe attacking the worldwide nodes with a DDOS attack. Since the quantum computers are already on the market and used by several institutions and companies it is only waiting, if not already, that goverments will use quantum computers to control a 100% of your personal life/income etc.(eg social credit system China) So it should be more then clear that a quantum resistant network/internet is really necessary.
