    Even though the last couple of questions were missed, there is enough to be able to supportthe application. Another node in that area of the world would be great.


    You will have my support, if you answer all questions

    1. XX Network is quite different from the current projects in the market and the biggest differentiating factor is the way the project is being developed. The development, testing and then launch shows that the xx network is not here to ride the Crytpo Bull market and instead it is aiming for the long term to establish itself in a niche market of privacy.

    2. Well we all know about snooping and the recent revelation about Pegasus. Internet has always been insecure for its users and this is going to bring much needed relief in the future.

    3. With what I understand, all the current network face an inherent risk with the high powered Quantum computing technology. It is good that xx network is establishing itself to be a quantum resistant blockchain to deter any possible issues later with widescale adoption of the Quantum computing technology. Centralized systems on the other hand are more prone to exploit as it controlled from a single point means single point of failure whereas this risk is considerably reduced with the decentralization of this authority


    Thanks for answering the questions you were asked above. I support you
