    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 decentralized network always focuses on a large number of validator nodes and democracy. Distributed networks are more of a commercial story, where you just need to boost performance to make money.
    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 a stronghold of democracy and decentralization. I think that this platform will be a good example for others . It's just that so far I haven't seen analogues of xx network. There is no platform that is so concerned about privacy and protection of its users. There is no platform that touches on social and even a little bit political issues on the Internet. I think that joining xx network or buying the assets of this platform is the best investment for the digital future.
    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? Because control oppresses people. We can observe that the happiest and wealthiest people live where there is no infringement of their rights by those who have power.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? This technology is dangerous. I don't think people should have so much power in their hands. The human factor will always take over and then all systems will suffer. The centralized ones will be the first.
