    Why do you want to be a node? i want to get more exposure to crypto world, i wasn't sure if i would be able to run but xx community in telegram was so helpful and they encouraged me to do. althogh, my elder son has experience with PCs and Linux, but later i would like to be dealing that by myself. I want to be a crypto mom :)

    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • Telegram
    Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? it's a new technology for me, and i like that they emphasize on privacy. quantum secure is another plus point.
    Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? no
    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? No
      Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
      • To protect the privacy of political speech
      • To promote quantum secure distributed systems
      • To earn xx coins
      • To contribute to a promising project
      • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
      What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? PS: i took google help to answer this (but thanks for asking now i understand the concept :) distributed network are stil controlled by inviduals who have decision power, in contrast decentralized networks are not controlled by any single decision points but community.
      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. to be honest at this moment i have mostly read about xx only, and i see that their privacy and specialy quantum proof system is the one which i think no one else is offering. I didn't read much about other blockchain so maybe my answer is not that accurate.
      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? what governments and big social media giants had been and have been doing with us is a well known to everyone, such things should stop, we should respect everyone's privacy. For me it's a basic human right.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? i again took google help: Quantum computers can break the private keys, so a quantum secure system is very much needed.

      innocent & sincere application :slight_smile: my vote

      very honest i like that

      Before I can give my support, could you please explain why there seems to be a duplicate application?
