      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
      • Other (please specify): Move away from government controlled currencies.
      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 managed authority and cannot be controlled. Distributed networks can be centralized and are equal, I believe there should be a choice which is why I prefer decentralized distributed networks.
      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 XX network platform solves the issue of so many centralized one have, it was designed with speed and give power back to people to participate while keeping our data secure and private.
      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? Everything now days has become centralized and controlled by both government and large corporations, and the 1%. If our privacy is not upheld and protected what's stopping them from limiting our freedoms. Most people are unaware that ISP and several big name websites are mining and selling our searches and visits. We need to be able to feel secure while using it.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Nothing would be secure from quantum computers the massive calculating power of these computers might be able to break blockchain security. System will need to be updated possibly using quantum computers? So we can counter and keep our information private and secure.
