    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The security, privacy, quantum resistant technology. I have yet to find a project at this level and with such a unique technology. Being a part of it would be incredible.

      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? It is not only critical for the future of the internet it is critical for the entire future of the human kind. Why do people use a passwords on their mobile, online, etc.? Privacy by default what is needed and should be.
