    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 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
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? The distributed network is not always decentralized. A distributed network, like a decentralized one, is supported by different machines located in different geographic locations, but managed in the interests of one person / organization. Accordingly, the reliability and security of information storage suffers. Based on this, I support the development of decentralized networks.
    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 is the first effective online platform to share information quickly and securely without exposing metadata. Similar messaging platforms are encrypted, but do not hide metadata, and therefore allow the collection of personal information that is subsequently sold.
    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? There is a big cybersecurity problem. A huge amount of personal data is collected and sold and then used for fraudulent purposes. Another problem is censorship on the Internet, lack of freedom of speech, people in power constantly control and prohibit content they dislike, as well as apply sanctions to those who wrote. People need objective and reliable information, free communication, and all around them there is only continuous propaganda, censorship, and punishment.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Пока я не вижу развития этого направления, но изучу этот вопрос, и тогда я смогу дать ответ на этот вопрос.

    You got my vote! Nice!

    My vote is for you

    Good profile, only 2 points are not clear:

    “Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running.”

    Is electricity so expensive in Russia?

    “In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?”

    On english please?

    Hello! Sorry for not fast answer.

    Im sorry, I didn’t understand the question. Cost of the elecricity is about 0.06$ per 1 KW/h

    So far I do not see the development of this direction, but when I study this issue, then I will be able to give an answer to this question.

    Very good! + for a quick response! I vote
