Why do you want to be a node? To be part of a growing and sound community. Restore our privacy and gain control of our data.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Discord
  • Facebook
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The underlining technology is incredible. David Chaum’s involvement. The fact that the network is working towards the ultimate platform bases on privacy while utilizing cmix.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Just ran rigs for eth.
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? No
Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience:
    As part of growing the xx network community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an xx network BetaNet node? Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. No
    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 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? Decentralized networks requires multiple parties to make their own independent decisions or conclusions. While directly exchanging and communicating directly with each other. Distributed networks utilize multiple servers. While basically controlling the network.
    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. Yet to see any platform or blockchain solution combining the privacy decentralization and scalability as this project. A while providing full privacy and protecting ones data.
    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? We no longer have control of our personal data. We have been stripped of our privacy and rights. Time for us to gain back all this. This is what I TRULY value about XX.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Hard to say but could be disastrous if we are not prepared and have systems and networks in place that can’t del with it.
