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? The decentralized structure uses distributed accounting and storage. There is no centralized node. The rights and obligations of any node are equal. The data blocks in the system are jointly maintained by nodes with maintenance functions in the entire system. Any node Stopping work will not affect the overall operation of the system.
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, for the first time successfully constructed a blockchain public chain on a privacy network, to prepare for the global network security and digital asset disaster caused by the sudden breakthrough of quantum computing technology.
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? Privacy should be owned and controlled by everyone. This requirement is inconsistent with the current structure of centralized networks. It can only be achieved on decentralized networks. This is the purpose of xxnetwork.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computing's super computing and password deciphering capabilities have a huge impact on the current standardized passwords, directly affecting the current network and information security in various fields, and it is likely to destroy most of the current public chains such as Bitcoin.
