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? Yes
    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 promote quantum secure distributed systems
    • To earn xx coins
    • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
    • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
    • 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? I have chosen for a long time - they are decentralized systems. The problem with distributed ones is that they can easily become centralized, there are no guarantees there. And decentralized systems are more stable and accessible.
    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. David Chaum offers users of his platform freedom, security, and transparency. The concept and technology of xx Network have been thought out in great detail, giving it a significant advantage over other blockchains. The team has calculated all possible risks and has taken care in advance to be fully resistant to any cyber attacks, including attacks by quantum computing.
    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? The Internet of the future cannot exist if those who intend to use users' identities for blackmail or fraud feel free to do so. Providing privacy by default will help get rid of these people, as they will no longer have that option.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? There is a huge risk that a quantum computer could decrypt cryptographic keys. This would cause the network to crash.
