Why do you want to be a node? I am pretty good at this kind of work. I live for it. Every time I discover something new about node operating. It helps me develop and get better, gain valuable experience and skills.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Creating a truly high-performance cryptocurrency. I've never seen a team so professional in creating their cryptocurrency. xx coin has many advantages over other tokens, that's what makes it exciting.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Torchain, Agoric, Solana, and Chia network.
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? no
Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience:
    As part of growing the xx network community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an xx network BetaNet node? Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. No
    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? These networks differ in the roles played by their members. For example, in a decentralized network, all members are equal. Any decision is made jointly, usually by voting. At the same time, in distributed network one of the participants will have more power and control over the others, he/she will make decisions.
    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. xx Network platform is probably one of the most precise embodiments of the web 3.0 concept. The platform has all the necessary tools to achieve complete decentralization and provide its users with usable privacy. The Praxxis protocol protects the network from cyber-attacks. Moreover, the xx network is the only platform that has quantum resistance. Users will gain accessibility, greater privacy, and control over their data.
    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? I think this is critical for all areas of life, but especially for the internet. Everything is tied to the internet these days. People do all-important financial transactions on the internet: getting their salary, paying their rent, etc. And if privacy disappears, people will lose everything. They could easily be hacked and manipulated by using their data. That should not be allowed to happen.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I hadn't thought about it before. I have just started looking into this issue because I saw that the xx network platform is quantum resistant. I realized that such a threat could arise, but it would only encourage us to develop cryptography further. In short, a solution on how to counter this will be found.
