      • 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 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
      • Other (please specify): I would lie that I comprehend quantum and so I have not checked it. All the rest the rest options are so … TRUE!
      What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? We have proverb in Lithuania - you are weak warrior if you are alone warrior in the war field (even you are the strongest one on the earth). You have to have lots of fellows to share the warrior’s duties and wins. I am absolutely for big company of warriors!

Secure and private place for everyone to communicate and pay. Do not know any good things from other 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? Do I want my mother to know I chatted to not good girl (my mother thinks so, she is not enough good for her)? Do I want my coworkers to see pictures of me partying hard? No. I need real privacy to prevent this.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? C`mon. I will not repaste smart..s answers. I am sure you are on track with it and the xx network is the best to counter it!
