    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? In case of decentralized - data is distributed among all nodes, not specific one. That's the power!
    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.
    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? Following GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) rules is a must today. So it's really good to set Privacy as vital in building new platform.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

    If the specs are too high, why are you applying?

    Not sure if they have GPU’s on Digital Ocean…
    And if they do they will have Quadro’;s etc - very expensive
    Suggest applies next time - cheapest option is to have your own sever at home - unless you know some smaller 3d Renderring farm or somethig where you could rent a physical server…

    Not if you compare with mining on PoW chains.

    DO does not offer droplets with GPUs suggesting that applicant did not do sufficient research before applying here. Does not have my support.

    PFFFFFF, if you think the hw specs are to high then why bother applying?

    Friendly reminder: If you are planning to place it in a datacentre without GPU, it won’t work. So think about it.
