Why do you want to be a node? I want to help developers.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Discord
  • BetaNet Forum
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? The idea of creating true decentralization without any nuances.

    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. No
    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? Since I am concerned about privacy and anonymity, I choose decentralized networks. After all, distributed networks are powered by a sole owner whose decisions cannot be controlled.
    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. Providing decentralized architecture and node structure, linear scalability, speed, full privacy. There is no other blockchain solution combining privacy decentralization and linear scalability at the same time. What's more, almost no one aspires to do so.
    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? Lack of privacy destroys the free nature of the internet.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I think absolutely everyone can be affected, just someone sooner and someone later.

    Application is :ok_hand:

    Comparing this application with your previous one, it is exactly the same. There is obviously no effort put into this and no response on your voter…
