    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 networks give everyone an equal right to vote.It prevents big companies from abusing personal data.
    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. XX network is quantum-resistant blockchain. XX network constructs a high-performance, high-security privacy network at the bottom, and realizes value transmission, smart contract and so on.
    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? Personal data should belong to individuals, and it is not safe to store personal data in a centralized network of big companies like Google.Privacy protection can only be truly realized in decentralized networks, which is the ultimate purpose of XX network.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers have the potential to crack most of today's public chains, such as Bitcoin.We are looking for a centralized system that can protect our digital assets from quantum computer attacks.Centralized systems don't use public-private key cryptography, so quantum computers won't have much impact on them.

    What hardware do you plan to use? Thanks
