  • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? The primary difference between centralized and decentralized communication networks has to do with the question of who has control over the network itself. In a centralized system, a singular authority or administrator retains total control over all aspects of the network. This authority is typically exerted through a central server that manages all data and permissions. A centralized network also locates all major processing power in this primary server. Decentralized networks are organized in a much more distributed fashion. Each node within the network functions as a separate authority with independent decision-making power regarding how it interacts with other systems. These networks also distribute processing power and workload functions among connected servers.
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. There are 4 important blockchain features: decentralization, scalability and transaction speed, privacy, and security. XX has it all. Largely thanks to xxBFT consensus. Furthermore, xxBFT is quantum secure. And David Chaum with us.
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? Internet giants such as Google, Facebook, Twitter collect a huge amount of information. They use it, monetize and sell it without the direct consent of users. If they are hacked, all this information may be in open access and can be used for fraudulent purposes. Therefore, I believe that the Internet companies in the future will have to ask the user for access to it.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Theoretically, quantum computers can generate a private key from the public key, which will allow them to access the address, send transactions, thereby stealing coins, etc. But we still haven’t seen quantum computers in action. I think by that time most blockchains will switch to quantum-safe cryptography algorithms

In my view this is a top of the notch application. You have my support

Really what’s so top of the notch with the exception your trying to promote it? BS no.
