    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Distributed means that the processing is shared across multiple nodes, but the decisions may still be centralized and use complete system knowledge. Decentralized means that there is no single point where the decision is made. Every node makes a decision for it’s own behaviour and the resulting system behaviour is the aggregate response.

    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I believe in the future every encryption will be improved by quantum computing.

    Hi, all!

    This is my application, I am ready to answer questions :slight_smile:

    On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?

    Answer: 5-10

    Solid one. You have my vote!

    Cool, very good bandwidth, perhaps such a fast uplink is not needed yet. But probably in the future will be needed :wink:

    :slight_smile: Thx

    Yes, good bandwidth :slight_smile:

    Where are you going to run your node.
    Your saying home but in the application it’s datacenter.
    Very confusing and with 190 node’s running its just a project for you.
    You don’t got my vote

    Hi Rubylounge!

    I don’t understand, where I say “I run node at home”? 190 node’s shows that I have experience. It’s a shame that you think that this is: “just a project”.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Please clarify where you intent on running your node. Otherwise you application looks good.

    My internet provider WEBA has several options in Saint Petersburg. The main one is mini data center. I will add the visibility of his IP addresses to the world in the picture.

    Has my vote. Good luck with process.

    Thx~ Patty

    Good work! You has my vote!

    You got my vote but don’t forget to run the gpu when you run in a datacenter.

    Thx! Have nice day

    WOW :slight_smile:

    Congratulations, you have been selected as a BetaNet node in xx network’s initial decision!

    Thx all!

    Good news :slight_smile:

    Congratulations, you have been selected as a BetaNet node in xx network’s final decision for Orange Group IV!

    Thx to all :slight_smile:
