    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
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralized networks offer many benefits over the more conventional centralized networks and even distributed ones, including increased system reliability, scale, and privacy. One of the most important benefits of decentralized networks management is the fact that there is no real single point of failure.
    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 xx Network platform is the only one of its kind that is protected against quantum computing attacks. xx Network also solves the cryptocurrency problem by creating truly digital cryptocurrencies. Not to forget, the developers are also concerned about how communication between users will be handled. xx messenger will use the same security technologies as the main network. It will be the most trusted and secure in the whole world.
    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? The advent of the internet is a new breath of freedom. But they are already trying to take it away from us. We can't allow that to happen.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers are the only thing decentralized networks have to be afraid of.
