    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? Each system has its own advantages. For now, distributed networks are much faster and more efficient. Decentralized systems are more secure and anonymous. They are now being actively improved, so soon they will not be inferior to distributed systems at all.
    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 can say xx Network has all the things we love about blockchain and decentralization. The only thing that sets this platform apart from others is that all of these things have been thought through and brought to perfection. I am talking about privacy, data protection, ensuring decentralization, unique and convenient cryptocurrency.
    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? Digitalisation has brought us many good things. But it has also caused almost all of our data to be on the internet. It is even easier to steal it, because we do not know how to manage and protect it. Privacy by default will of course remedy this situation.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I'm not convinced that quantum computers will be used for just such a purpose, to declassify data. Rather, I want to believe it. This technology could take countries to a new level of development. It would be a shame if governments used it for their own ends.

    Application is good

    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 voters…
