What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A decentralized network is a network with no single control center and a single point of failure. A distributed network is a network with no single point of failure.After launching the node, I will participate in the mechanism of decentralized consensus building to ensure network security.
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. Advantages of Elixxir: 1) Speed: payment completion and message transfer are completed in seconds; 2) Confidentiality of transactions: only senders and recipients can view and confirm payment history. Transaction data is not stored on the blockchain. 3) Confidentiality of communication: the identity of the interacting parties and their devices remains confidential
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? Neglecting the right to confidentiality leads to a loss of user confidence, increased control and a decrease in the amount of information exchanged. Events with Cambridge analytics have shown us how a lack of confidentiality directly affects people's lives.
