      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? Decentralized networks do not have a single control center. Therefore, the risks of any interference or pressure are eliminated.
      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. The main difference is in the construction of the network architecture. The privacy, quantum resistance, meta data protection.
      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? An attempt to create a new anonymous and secure Internet will surely find its followers and will be successful with users.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?
