    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? I'm pro decentralization, centralized one lead to authoritarian regimes. Decentralized means that there is no single point where the decision is made.
    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 obvious value of xx network is its privacy, decentralization and quantum resistance but the real value comes from smart and skilled community leaded by David Chaum who is probably the most experienced person in the industry.
    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? Internet is slowly and steadily monopolized and Privacy by Default would give us a fighting chance to level the playing field
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers is a breakthrough that will affect whole Internet when they become enough powerful. Quantum computers can solve certain problems exponentially faster than normal ones. Especially it put in the risk everything which takes advantage of RSA encryption (quantum algorithms allow to find private key in relatively short time).
