      • 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? Decentralized is having to do with a network not run by a specific entity or corporation. Distributed has to do with multiple nodes across vast geographical area using various ISP's
      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 think main value is the use of Cmix protocol to eliminate the chance for metadata harvesting and data breech. This may seem funny but I actually think that from a marketing perspective, having David Chaum as the face of this project will greatly help it gain traction on the global stage and thus propel the technology forward. finally i would say the amount of help though guides, forums, social media groups such as the ones xxnetwork has provided will really give value to anyone looking to get into crypto. this actually a very helpful community !
      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 is a core part of our freedom. It must be default idea when creating communication and payment systems.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Theoretically they are a big threat to our current technology infrastructure, not to mention crypto currencies themselves. This is clear by the amount of struggle projects like Monero are going through to create a solution to this before its to late.
