Why do you want to run a node in the xx network? To protect private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations, To promote quantum secure distributed systems, To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world, To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies, To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? as I understand it, in a decentralized network, all nodes are independent of each other in a distributed network, nodes are distributed geographically from each other
As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the xx network platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions. It is an advanced system geographically distributed with a developed community and a well-known leader)

Can you upgrade your 2060 with a 2070?

Yes, of course, I can upgrade my GPU to 2070

You have my vote if you upgrade your GPU to a 2070 :slight_smile: congrats

Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:

This node server will be located at home and connected to ISP “MGTS”.

Glad to hear you will run from home. Has my vote.
