    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 undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
    • 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? The difference between them is that in a decentralized community, the decision is made by consensus of the majority in the network, and when the opinion of its participants is important. Centralized networks lack democracy and control over their data
    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 think that in addition to quantum protection, the main thing is that the team focuses on real decentralization and most of the participants place nodes at home, and not in centralized data centers
    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? Because in the case of centralized systems, the government, without the consent of citizens, can decide whose confidentiality is important, and who can be neglected for its political games. Therefore, it is necessary to build systems where government structures cannot dictate their selective rules of the game to individuals. The Internet of the future is a place where the user decides for himself how to handle his data
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers will pose threats to many algorithms and existing security systems. Centralized systems are dangerous in themselves.
