    Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
    • 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 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): To limit government control over digital transactions
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? The main difference in the system is how the information is shared and the decisions are made. In decentralized network every node is independent and makes it's own decision, while in a distributed system the processing is shared, but the decision making can be centrally controlled.
    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 network aims to solve many issues currently facing other blockchain platforms, such as centralization, security, privacy of data etc.
    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? In todays reality governments are trying to control the behavior of individual internet users, large corporations are aiding them in this. To achieve true privacy from government or large corporation control takes a significant dedication of resources. We need to move away from this in the future, and xx network is a step in the right direction.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers pose a threat to all current encryption algorithms, so no system or information in theory is secure with the development of these systems. New methods need to be developed to counteract the threat of quantum computing
