    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? In a distributed network that has not adopted decentralised management, all governance will be undertaken by a central authority and not by the community.
    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 offers guarantees of privacy, security and protection against leakage of personal data.
    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? The Internet was created as a free platform, allowing people to upload a lot of personal information without fear. In essence, there is nothing wrong with that, but this is a time of people who are desperate for power and control over everything because it brings in money. The nature of the Internet is skewed at the moment, so we need basic privacy.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? This is a controversial question. It cannot be answered correctly at the moment.
