    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A dis tributed network is a network in which nodes can be managed from multiple local centers. A decentralized network is a peer-to-peer network in which each node is independent and can establish a connection with any other node in the network to achieve some goal. I like decentralized networks better
    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. I believe that the value of the XX platform is that it provides confidential messaging and this is very relevant at this time.
    Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? In my opinion, confidentiality will solve a lot of problems at the moment and also in the future, as control by the government increases, which collects confidential information and uses it for personal purposes.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I believe that centralized systems can be susceptible to attacks from quantum computers, but for decentralized systems, I think that it is too early to talk about any threat from quantum computers. I think that the future is behind decentralization, or I want to believe it))
