    Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
    • To earn xx coins
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • 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? in centralized network all data flows concentrated in hands of one participant, who can make decisions only by himself, in decentralised networks all participants are equal in right and can make decisions based on consensus mechanism. I prefer decentralization and personal privacy
    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. Private blockchain with quantum resistance just must exist in near future. The weakness of current blockchain infrastructure before quantum computing looks dangerous. Looks like a praxxis can be a good answer for 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? Goverments and corporations keep taking profit from users private data, i hear a less independent voices over the media sphere. This does not look optimistic
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers is a main threat for decentralized systems, same as regulation provided by goverments. Quantum techologies can break a current popular consensus mechanisms, take control over user wallets. In centralized systems it can generate a tons of private data leaks, break ingeneering infrastructure and bring world into chaos.

    You have my support, but (as you probably know) you need to upgrade your hardware to meet the requirements (Build Your Node).

    Good application. What are your plans for buying a capable computer? Have you found one that you can buy?

    hardware is very weak. If you strengthen it, you add power to the network.
