What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Distributed networks could have centralized management, like botnets, for example. Decentralized networks are alive organisms. Second part of question is not particularly clear, I'll try to answer my best: I'm interested in the whole rainbow of levels of decentralized systems - from node mining, throw DAps, to markets. It's a new form of people's interaction, and I'm interested to see my children use better technologies. So, making my best I'm learning the rest ) Now I'm going to implement my knowledge into those spheres as wide as I can.
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. As Telegram differs from SMS, and XOR algorithm differs from PGP i suppose that's the way Elixxir can show difference from other blockchain crypto projects. Time'll show. But the architecture is well.
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? Because several days before we have got a brand-new face-recognition system, that will work instead of proxy-cards and old-coins and in Moscow Metropolitan. In Saint-Petersburg, in the old historical city of my birth, we have about 50 face-recognition cameras in in every metro station and on every cross of big central street. In our country they are trying to implement DPA firewalls widely, so I believe in ipv6 and human minds and "organic" privacy and security, that of course, can be reached architecturally!
