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? On a decentralized network, people have more privacy and rights. Data ownership belongs to individuals. The data of a centralized network is controlled and controlled by a centralized organization. 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. XX network, for the first time, realized fast and safe communication and value exchange on mobile devices.
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 should be owned and controlled by everyone. The existing major networks are controlled by large companies. It is almost impossible for them to give up their economic interests and protect users' data privacy.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? We don't know when the quantum computer will arrive, but it will definitely come, so we need to prepare for that day and find a decentralized system that can protect our digital assets from quantum computer attacks
