What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? on a decentralized network there are several central nodes connected to each other versus distributed networks which every thing is distributed and there is no centralization. I'm indifferent towards both I find them both effective.
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. I feel its the way Elixxir is trying to keep users data protected from end to end. Most blockchains still contain crucial data about transactions.
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? We need something that is close to cash as possible. There needs to be anonymity of purchase and the people making them in order to protect peoples privacy.
