    I will supplement my questionnaire: 1. A decentralized network does not have a single control point, the entire network is distributed between the community and its participants, and is not controlled by an individual and one organization. For me, such a network is more fair. 2. XX offers its own view and creates protection against quantum computing, guarantees complete security and confidentiality. 3. A person should have the right to freedom and the right to free expression of his opinion, but the authorities are trying to interfere in our life. It’s unpleasant when someone collects information about you without your consent. In my opinion, this violates the basic principles of the Internet. 4. With the release of the quantum computer, data protection will be threatened, as they have enormous computing power. XX Coin will solve this problem.

    You have my vote, your application looks solid, maybe consider more future-proof hardware, like Nvidia 3070. But anyway even 2070 will do nicely.
