    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A decentralized system is a system that requires several parties to make their own independent decisions "In such a decentralized system, there is no single centralized body that makes decisions on behalf of all parties. Instead, each party, also called a partner, makes a local autonomous decision on its individual goals that may conflict with those of other peers Peers interact directly with each other and exchange information or provide services to other partners. In an effort to increase decentralization, I launch nodes in various projects, thereby becoming part of the decentralized world

Scalable, fast, truly private, quantum resilient blockchain using authentic cryptography for financial services and secure messaging
    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 at the moment companies collect too much information about us and our activities on the Internet. And this is done without our knowledge
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Ability to crack current encryption algorithms
