What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? To put it simply: a Distributed system is a model in which components located on network computers exchange and coordinate their actions by sending messages. In this definition, a decentralized system is also a distributed system. The key point in decentralization is that there is no Central point of control. Wide-ranging Internet applications and services are distributed, but most of them are centralized because the company that manages them can change or stop the system. On the spectrum of centralization I'm in the center.
