        Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
        • To earn xx coins
        • 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? When discussing blockchain technology, the term “decentralized network” often comes up. But many people still have a difficult time explaining what a decentralized network is, whether there is a difference between decentralized and distributed networks, and what benefits these network structures have over centralized networks. Each different type of network architecture comes with its own set of pros and cons. Here we discuss the basic differences between centralized, decentralized, and distributed networks.
        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.
        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? When it comes to making secure products, privacy must be encompassed in the entire design. Privacy will be lacking if it is an after-thought and is looked at as a feature, rather than part of the product.
        In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Blockchain is just the latest technology that will change the way we work and live, but there is a new technology that is starting to emerge and, according to researchers, it looks set to disrupt the disruptor. That technology is quantum computing.

        Could you please answer this question as for it me it is one of the most important to make sure people are serious about hosting nodes for the xx network?

        Interesting form. But answer all the last questions and provide specs then you’ll get my vote

        As i said previously, i’m a newby with this crypto world. I don’t have any quind of experience in this platforms. I can see the value of the decentralized economy in the internet world, otyherwise all the interests of bigger companies will prevail again and we will have a ‘Oil market’ again in a larger scale.

        Thanks for your reply, you have my vote.

        I realise you are new to crypto, but running an xx node is not just about collecting a reward at the end of the month but understanding the project well.

        I would suggest that you start here for some basic information on xx network:

        Not bad. My vote

        Decent application and i like the location. Has my vote.

        Looks good. Previous experience teaching in the field seems interesting. If there is a commitment to buy the hardware as per the specification it’s a strong applicant. Has my vote

        Decent application!
