What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralize is run peer to peer network of node is instructing no single nod has control over for instance bitcoin uses a blockchain decentralized ledger of transaction . Distributed is spread across multiple nodes instead of just one.

Bandwidth is by far insufficient. You need => 100mbit up / 100mbit down.
Sorry.

Must meet the min requirements!

Agree with above statements.

Applicant has the right motivation and his/her previous experience in running a Monero node suggests interest in private blockchains. I also like that this node would run in a University/Academic Institution, suggesting a research environment. In addition, as we currently do not have any nodes in China (as far as I’m aware), location is another plus.

I would support this application under the following conditions:

  • Applicant clearly states the ability to upgrade bandwidth and makes a commitment to meet bandwidth specs if selected,
  • Applicant makes a commitment to build/buy a node that meets HW specs, including the GPU,
  • Applicant provides answers to all four questions at the end of the application form.

EDIT: I just reviewed another application in which statements resemble statements made in this application 1:1.

I’m not supporting this application until applicant clarifies his/her relation to the above application.

Sharp observation by Marc and agree with him: Applicant(s?) must provide full clarity…
No support can be given until then.

Yes, I can upgrade the connection speed, as required by the network.
thank you

And for the last two questions :
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?

:arrow_forward:Privacy is also important to a person to have the right of confidentiality.

In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems

:arrow_forward:Quantum computers are a major threat to both the decentralized and the centralized system. With a decentralized network it is possible to decrypt private keys, which can lead to the collapse of a decentralized system.

Please clarify Marc’s remarks.

I have tried to clarify on all of the conditions stated above. That I’m able to upgrade the bandwidth:yes ,
Which one will be using to run nodes : rx 580 8gb , replying to all the last 4 questions : done

The gpu should be a Nvidia Turing card.
Please look at the website: ‘build’ ate the nodes section
