Why do you want to be a node? In truth, I like the idea of this project and I believe in the project, unfortunately I found out about him quite late.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Telegram
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Discord
Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Capable of scaling linearly. Settles in under 10 seconds. Quantum Secure Hash-based cryptography
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Mina protocol
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Yes, in Minsk Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Belarus
Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience:
  • Instructional video content: yes
  • Livestream/broadcast video content: yes
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 promote quantum secure distributed systems
  • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
  • To contribute to a promising project
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Centralized systems are systems that use a client / server architecture where one or more client nodes are directly connected to a central server. In decentralized systems, each node makes its own decision. The final behavior of the system is a collection of decisions of individual nodes. Note that there is no single entity that receives and responds to a request.
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.
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 possible and it's also preferable. Since decentralized projects are difficult to stop entirely, they will succeed one day or the other.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

Great options, you get my vote.

Good equipment, requirements met, but I would like to see your answer to the last questions.

First of all, these are quantum attacks and confidentiality, this is the essence of this project and the most important thing is that the project has ready-made and grenade solutions.

Centralized systems will fall under the attack first, because they will become extremely vulnerable. Due to its exposure growth of calculations, a quantum computer can easily choose a key for example to the Bitcoin wallet. Xx will solve this problem
