As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the Elixxir platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions. Privacy is my right. Elixxir differs because it harnesses blockchain that will unleash human potential with mass adoption by way of being quantum resistant, allowing me to control my own communication and payments without fear of doing so.
Privacy by Default is a goal of the Elixxir Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? In times of war, in times of corrupt governments, and in times of bad actors.

Thanks Andrew – if anyone is looking for Eri’s YouTube channel, the main @Elixxir_io retweeted her yesterday.

Has anyone seen other content producers sharing the Node Forum?

I did DM some of the XRP community contributors asking them to look into Elixxir. Hope they like the project and will come up with some content. To my knowledge, the only XRP community member who mentioned the Elixxir Node Applications is Eri.

Thank you Peter ! Eri puts a lot of research and love in her videos. She has become our family’s daily inspiration. Besides BTC and XRP she would definitely post some quality content about Elixxir if more information was available for her research. Running a node would give her the opportunity to familiarize the masses with Elixxir.
As a technical noob, I have to say that White Papers are too dry for the average investor.

Blockquote As a technical noob, I have to say that White Papers are too dry for the average investor.

Haha, I come to this from a similar perspective. I helped write the executive summary of the cMix whitepaper (on our website) with the goal of keeping things noob-friendly. Hopefully that was somewhat successful!
