Other Reasons
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? In short, I prefer to distributed networks rather than 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. I rarely getting involved in blockchain projects that based on 'end-to-end' user encryption like XX Messanger, this will be a very good platform for further development.
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? For me, the blockchain itself is a privacy where no entity and no company could control or sell it. So, I hope XX Network could be a platform that could leverage the technology to improve the security of the internet.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers are possible to break the decentralized systems, but it will need very high cost in my opinion. If someday, the quantum computers break decentralized system, I'm pretty sure there will be new technology that more secure rather than blockchain as a decentralized system.
