What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? increasing decentralization should be the ultimate goal, where all participants are equal, without unbalance in ownership.
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'm not aware of any blockchain solution that combines the level of decentralization, qc-resistance and metadata shredding techniques as the XX network platform does.
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? Because optional privacy doesn't work; all those so-called privacy coins and networks are failing 1 by 1, except for e.g. Monero. Only optional/opt-in transparency can work.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Breaking the algorithms, exposing all data. That would be pretty much game-over. So better be ready now, before the QC threat becomes active and real.
