    • 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? Distributed networks usually are centralized. Whereas decentralized is not controlled by one. Individual or enterprise. Meaning no centralized control.

    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? Come on looks what’s going on in the current World. Everything is centralized and controlled by Govn’ts and big corps. We the people need our privacy back!
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Not sure what the extent of threat would be to DCS. However, from a centralized perspective: we’ve already massive amounts of hacks and information theft. Can you imagine what QTUM could do.
