    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? I am for decentralization. A decentralized network is not housed/monitored/controlled by a minority, it is a collection of works from a broad spectrum of people. Distributed networks are run by a selection of people and corporations for which we are allowed to take part for a price.
