Why do you want to be a node? I believe that cryptocurrencies are the future and the future has already come, I don't want to miss it
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Telegram
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? privacy, private correspondence
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? I attended conferences that took place in my country, for example, BlockchainUA
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? Yes
    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 true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? I like decentralized networks more. A distributed network is a network in which nodes can be managed from multiple local centers. A decentralized network is a peer-to-peer network in which each node (node) is independent and can establish a connection with any other node in the network to achieve some goal
    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. I believe the value of the xx platform lies in the fact that it provides secure and confidential messaging and the ability to create private smart contracts.
    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? I believe that the further existence of the Internet without confidentiality complicates the development of a private network, while the government collects our private data and uses it for their own purposes.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? we can confidently say that quantum computers in the foreseeable future do not pose any serious threat to cryptocurrencies and blockchains. This is true both for systems that are just being created and for those already in operation. The danger of hacking distributed ledgers and decentralized ledgers is perceived more as theoretically possible (provoking the creation of more secure systems) than as likely in reality.
