    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? In distributed networks, the degree of control varies greatly. I mean this system can be organized in such a way that most of the nodes will be partially controlled, or it can be the other way around. Most of the time I have seen the first one. And decentralized ones are entirely controlled by the participants. In this way, all nodes are fully empowered.
    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 has a high level of security and privacy by design.
    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? Democracy and providing people with their rights, such as privacy, on the Internet and in ordinary life is the only way to develop. Centralized systems and networks will lead us to stagnation and degradation.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I know there are only hypothetical threats, but of course it is better to be reassured and protect every system.

    Thank you all very much for your support. It means a lot to me because I want to contribute to the project. I really hope that the team will pay attention to my application form, because in addition to a great desire to become a validator and the necessary hardware, I have a few other skills that may be useful for developers. I am keen on trying to write my own applications on this platform, as I know JavaScript and Node JS quite well. I wouldn’t like to miss the opportunity when xx network has a ready-made SDK
