|Why do you want to run a node in the xx network||
|What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?||In a decentralized network, there will never be a single control centre. In a distributed network, the existence of the latter is possible.|
|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.||First of all it is a new kind of hash-based cryptography.

In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet?||It is very funny to see how corporations and various government agencies justify the disclosure of personal data on the grounds that it will make it easier for them to catch criminals and bad people. In practice, however, only ordinary people suffer from this. It is just another way of controlling us.|
|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||There is a lot of debate about this. One says that it is impossible to run such a computer so that it runs at full power, and therefore there is no danger. Others argue the opposite, stating that our private keys can easily be decrypted. Personally, I am inclined to think that it is more reliable to provide the best level of protection to spare ourselves any problems.|
