    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? A truly decentralized network allows everyone to vote, and each individual is equal and free.And in this free network, everyone has more privacy and rights, and the ownership belongs to the individual. The data of centralized network is controlled by centralized authoritarian organization. In the decentralized network, each node operates independently, and the centralized network is started and maintained by an organization. Decentralized network is more stable. I prefer decentralized networks
    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 xx network is a blockchain resistant to quantum computing, and for the first time it has realized the privacy protection of user metadata. The xx network constructs a high-performance, high-security privacy network at the bottom, and realizes value transmission, smart contracts, MPC, etc. on top of it, which is the infrastructure of the future decentralized society.
    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? Solving privacy protection on the underlying network is more efficient and safer than solving privacy protection on the application layer. The purpose of xxnetwork is to realize that everyone owns and controls privacy on a decentralized network. This requirement is in contradiction with the current structure of centralized networks. The existing major networks are controlled by large companies. It is almost impossible for them to give up their economic interests and protect users' data privacy through self-discipline.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? We don't know when quantum computer will come, but it will certainly come, so we need to find a decentralized system that can protect our digital assets from quantum computer attacks. Because not all centralized systems use public key private key encryption system, quantum computer will not have great influence on them. The decentralized system is based on the public private key encryption system. Quantum computer can easily crack the public private key encryption system, and it is likely to destroy most of the current public chains such as bitcoin.
