What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? There are multiple servers in a distributed chat system. Each client connects to one of these servers and servers and then transmits data to each other to give the correct result to the user as well as deliver a message to the other user (who is also connected to this distributed system). So it can be done easily with a single server, but what about load balancing and resource balancing? Not only do we go for distributed projects, resource sharing scalability high availability Although in the same example, a chat system that is decentralized relies on its own users to make peer-to-peer connections with each other and then send a message. Each node has all the logic for serving the messaging service and for sending messages. There is no intermediary responsible for delivering messages or storing them.

In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? centralized cheatstems can be at risk from quantum computers. decentralized systems are much less vulnerable to danger
