    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 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? The main difference is that in a decentralized network all nodes are made up entirely. That is, each keeps its own copy of all network data and has full rights
    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 is on a different level of performance and scalability compared to other blockchains. The developers have focused on providing usable privacy and securitization. This makes it a long-term and successful network. The platform stands on three pillars: democracy, freedom, and efficiency.
    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? Without privacy by default, we will go back a few centuries in development. All prohibitions and supervision kill people's potential and desire to create.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I think quantum computers will do more harm to centralized systems than decentralized ones.
