    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 help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • 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? 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. Other crypto's I heard about do not focus on decentralization enough. It's a very good move to have only one node per person. That way big companies or rich people can't monologize the network. This benefits decentralization and everybody gets a fair chance.
    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 = Freedom That's about as simple as I can explain it. We need privacy
    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.
