    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? In a distributed network, computation is handled by a large number of nodes with different geographies. Decentralized ones have this aspect as well, but none of their nodes manage the others.
    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. xxNetwork is decentralization in all its glory and even better. xxNetwork is not only a blockchain, but also a private messenger. The platform is so well secured that no outside forces can take control of it, not even quantum computers.
    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 all people are highly dependent on privacy. Everything revolves around it - our happiness, security, confidence, etc.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Centralized systems would be attacked first, and successfully.
