    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 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 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 a decentralized system, there is no single centralized body that makes decisions on behalf of all participants. In distributed networks you have to rely on a third party. Accordingly, the one who owns a distributed network can manipulate the other participants, which in turn may not be safe
    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. I am inspired by the idea of security and privacy on the Internet. Because the Internet is becoming a hostile place for ordinary people. I want me and my family to be safe online. And that our data is not used by intruders for selfish purposes.
    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? Digital identity is what many companies or just bad people are after, it can all be used against you. Few people want to be in a place where people who provide you internet services are trying to use your data behind your back for personal gain. That's why privacy plays an important role in the development of the Internet.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Perhaps we don't fully appreciate what this power of quantum computers can do
