      • 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? Very big problem in how people/ big tech interacts with distributed networks of data, free-will is threatened without having any clue over how and why
      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. Fresh start to the future
      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? At this point, in some cases I can't even make the difference over which are my decisions and which are not, under the influence of so many entities using my available data.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

      Regarding the question: Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)?, I noticed i’ve jumped the question a bit.

      I have the funds ready to purchase all the hardware, the minimum requirements, except maybe I’ll get an 3080TI.
      I’ll also be running a separate node & gateway, in the same location.

      I know this candidate personally and I’ll help him with the Node setup if selected

      Good application, looks promising, has my vote.

      You have my support. Good luck!

      3080ti is an absolute future-proof if you can get it. Good application, you have my support.

      Good application has my vote.

      Solid, you have my vote.

      you are willing. It’s nice to have you with us. I support :+1:
