|Why do you want to run a node in the xx network||
|What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?||Decentralized networks cannot be controlled and it is every node for themselves, the outcome of the system is decided by individual nodes, distributed nodes apply consensus protocols to agree on the same transaction/values. I fall on the side of decentralization but there is faults and positives with both.|

|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||They pose a big threat in the sense that all system securities could be obsolete and make cyber security near impossible to obtain.|
HW info would be great. Can you tell us what your planning on using?
Application looks promising, thanks for answering most of the questions. It’s really important we know what hardware your going to use. Your bandwidth avaible looks great. Let me know and we’ll go from there!
Overall I really like. Confirmation of HW would be great.
Hey guys sorry for the late reply. I don’t know how I missed the hardware…
I will be running,
Ryzen 3950x, RTX 3070, Evo 970 pro, with 32gb ram.
That’s great news. Will be great to have you on board. Good luck with the process.
Good that you can here to clarify the HW. That being said you now have my full support.
Great application and clarification in your responses. You have my support
