Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Using Praxxis protocol to Protect against quantum computing attack. I have seen a lot of different projects, but I have never seen this kind of technology. It's something that people don't understand. I wonder how it will work in practice
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?

    Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? No
    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 are powered by participants. Authority is not consolidated in the hands of one person or a particular group. Therefore, such networks are fair and trustworthy. Distributed networks are a combination of small centralized networks that are interconnected and controlled by a central node. Of course, I support decentralization.
    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 network developers offer tools that can help to achieve high network speed and efficiency, as well as scalability and complete decentralization. The main objective of xx network is to create a safe digital space for users. Also, the main principle of the network is democracy. Users will be able to participate in the governance of the network.
    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? First of all, because it doesn't exist as such now. Many people think that the internet is a safe place, but it is not. People are being cheated. While we are scrolling through our Instagram feeds, big corporations, and not just them, are selling our data. The native ads we see on our screens are the tip of the iceberg.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers can threaten decentralized systems and all cryptography. Other blockchains don't see the threat. There are one of the main value of XX Network. Centralized systems with the typically authorize approach will be broken by Quantum computers
