    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? I have been using blockchain and decentralized platforms for a long time. As a user, I can say that I like them more. There is more freedom and opportunities there. At any moment, you can become a member of the network, and take part in the management or the economy. There is no such thing in distributed 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. I think that xx Network is the platform that will give the start of the internet of the future without censorship and the authorities. It's a decent digital space that will be accessible to everyone and that won't allow your data to be stolen.
    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? It is the most basic value without which the democracy we all aspire to cannot be built.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? It seems to me that the biggest threat to decentralized systems at the moment is that they are not always well architected and managed.
