    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? To understand the difference, it is essential to understand what centralized networks are. Because one flows seamlessly from the other. Centralized networks are simple. There is one central node that manages the entire network. For this reason, such systems are vulnerable. Distributed networks have a more complex architecture. It consists of small centralized networks that are interlinked with each other. There is a central node that continues to manage the main processes and controls the others. But in some cases, the subnodes may also make decisions on their own. In decentralized networks, the nodes work independently of each other. It's the difference between these systems.
    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. For me, this platform is number 1 among all the others. Everything here is crystal clear and straightforward. The whitepaper describes the basic principles of operation, economics, and governance clearly. xx Network is a fairly open and honest decentralized network. But its main value is the developers. They want to make people's lives easier and safer. They introduce not only new technologies, but also promote basic human values such as freedom and equality.
    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 complete privacy, there would be another lever of pressure on people to suppress their will and freedom.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Cryptography has taken the protection of individual systems to a new level. I think it can handle quantum computers as well.
