      Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? No
      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? In distributed networks I believe it comes down to control by an individual or enterprise. Not allowing individuals to have control. Decentralized is that there is no single enterprise or individual having control. along with no commitment to geographical locations.
      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. From what I understand, the network would be quantum secure, be able to scale linearity, increased speed as more nodes are added.
      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? V for Vendetta! We shouldn't have to share our information if we do not want to. We have already seen a number of hacks relating to our information being stolen and used for the purposes of resale or harm.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Breaking encryption, access to data in a nano sec, the risk of exposure to our personal information, etc.
