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 help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
  • To contribute to a promising project

What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
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. XX Networkis actually looking to solve many problems that we currently have, and that's something amazing, also this network is what they actually says it is. not like many others.
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? We cannot do litterally anything without being supervised... A clear example is every social media. You cannot say anything without seeing later on an ad of what you were saying recently... Government and great corporations are taking control over it...
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Im not really a saviour in this topic but as far as I know we would need something to counteract to keep our info safe.

You have my support

You have my vote hope to see you running a node

Have my vote. Good luck
