Why do you want to be a node? We are in the tide of the Internet. The Internet not only makes it convenient for us to obtain information, but also causes great trouble to our privacy. The endless harassing phone calls every day make people very disgusted. Sincerely hope to be able to become XX node, to better serve you, as far as possible to solve the problem of privacy leakage.

Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience:
    As part of growing the xx network community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an xx network BetaNet node? Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. I am very happy to do it. I will study as fast as I can and finish the related work conscientiously
    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 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
    • Other (please specify): Privacy is the basic right everyone should enjoy. Now these data have become a way for Internet companies to make money. XX will certainly change this situation, because privacy protection is everyone's demand. Come on, let's work together!
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? I think that in a decentralized network, everyone has the right to vote equally. At the same time, privacy can be protected, and stability and security will be stronger. I prefer a decentralized network
    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. I personally think that in the history of XX network, the privacy protection of user metadata has been realized for the first time. And XX network can resist quantum computer, now xxmessenger has been put into use, this is a very amazing thing!
    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? The Internet not only solves the problem of how fast we can get information, but also greatly divulges our personal privacy. I am one of them. Every day I receive endless harassing phone calls and promotional advertisements. They can accurately describe every bit of your personal information. It's very scary, and it's also a very bad thing. XX will certainly change all this. We need something to protect our privacy. It must win the recognition and support of the market!
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I don't think quantum computers will have a great impact on centralized systems, because not all centralized systems use public key private key encryption systems. The impact on the decentralized system will be great, which may directly lead to the destruction of the current mainstream public chain. The problem we need to solve now is to find a blockchain that can protect digital assets from being attacked before quantum computers come
