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? On decentralized networks, people have the same right to vote. Each node of the decentralized network runs independently, and the centralized network is run by large companies or organizations The data of centralized network is controlled by institutions, while the data of decentralized network is controlled by participants I prefer decentralization
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. On this issue, I personally think that for the first time in the history of XX network, privacy protection of user metadata has been realized. And XX network can resist quantum computer, now xx-messenger is already in use
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? I think privacy should be owned and controlled by everyone, not by Internet institutions. This problem just conflicts with the centralized network. Only possible solutions can be made on decentralized network. As I can see, XX network is born for this purpose
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? We all know that the decentralized system is built on the public key private key encryption system, so it is easy to be cracked by quantum computer, and the centralized system is not all built on the public key private key encryption system, so there are many solutions to deal with the threat of quantum computer. We don't know when quantum computers will arrive, so we need a blockchain that can protect our digital assets from quantum computers.
