What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Quantum resistant cryptography, concept of metadata privacy and consensus algorithm.
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Casperlabs, Mina (Coda), Kira Network, Thorchain, NYM, Axelar
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? Distributed network is a system where components might span geographical boundaries but are owned and controlled by a single entity. Trust in such the system is still centralized. Decentralized network is a system with nodes that are geographically distributed and under the control of node operators. Each node is an equal among others within this system and hence, trust is equally distributed. This is what makes the system decentralized. That’s why I choose decentralized 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. I think the main value proposition is freedom and democracy. This is what the whole concept of xx network is based on. Of course, other blockchains want to provide privacy and decentralization too. But these are not fundamental things for them.
    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 this, no system will work properly. Because there will be no credibility and reliability
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? There will definitely be a threat. Right now there is little talk about it and almost no decentralised system is trying to find a mechanism to counter it, because the real computer has not yet been created
