What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Distributed networks have more node connections and are more antifragile overall, while decentralized tend to be just robust. The more distributed the better (in architecture, governance and incentives rewards).
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 by Default is a goal of the Elixxir Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? Privacy and decentralization (distribution) should go hand in hand because a lack of privacy by default inevitably makes the network more vulnerable. It is an essential tool against the machinery of the dossier society. As Dan Jeffries says: "The death of cash is the death of freedom. Privacy coins may just be the rebirth of it."
