    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 help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • 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?
    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 XX network privacy is first. I see XX team work very hard to make best network to do this. Other solutions say one thing but do other and think more of money not people.
    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? Many apps sell your data and so make not safe. It is very important for people privacy come first. Other platforms do opposite and people get tricked that data is safe. This is bad for people who live in difficult countries.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? In future they may break some encryption but harder to attack with decentralised systems.

    Sorry I forgot 1 question. Difference is for decentralized networks decisions not make centrally, but with distributed networks that not always true. It make it harder to hack.

    I have got everything for node but ssd are Samsung 980 pro not corsair. My husband help me build it.

    You need 1TB storage

    I have 2 SSD. I is 1TB and the other is 500GB. I can not get Corsair so got Samsung 980 pro for both.

    In full transparency, this is my wife’s application. She has been on my journey in setting up a node and is super keen on privacy, so wanted to run her own node to help xx network in the region. Plus she will beat me if I don’t support her application! :rofl:

    Thank you Vaena

    Sorry I accidentally use my husbands account :cry:
