      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. for me the privacy is biggest thing and i feel that xx network has understood it exactly how it suppose to be.
      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? Privacy is basic human right but unfortunately it's being compromised by those who suppose to protect it. I am so happy to see xx network is taking it very seriously and i do believe that they with xx network we will achieve it in true manner.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? they are threat to both centralized and decentralized systems.
