    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? Decentralized systems do not depend on one central server. Consequently, even if one or several nodes fail, the others can continue to provide access to data to users and the whole network will continue to work. I prefer this type of system because of its high performance and enhanced privacy.
    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. The main challenge is to solve the issues of other blockchains. Then there are the technologies by which this can be accomplished. And they are certainly promising. Praxxis, which has developed a new consensus, will help achieve linear scalability and incredible performance. It is also responsible for protecting the network. Elixxir is first and foremost about user privacy, which will be inviolable on this network.
    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? It's just the kind of guarantee that will make users more loyal to the internet. You can't do without it if you want to make a change.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I have great faith in decentralization. It is already capable of dealing with most computer attacks, which means a way will be found to overcome quantum developments as well.
