What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? In a distributed system there are several chat servers. Each client connects to one of these servers and servers, and then passes the data to each other to give the correct result to the user, as well as deliver the message to the other user (who is also connected to this distributed system). So it can be easily done with a single server, but what about load and resource balancing? Not only that, we go for distributed projects, resource sharing scalability high availability Although in the same example, a chat system that is decentralized relies on its own users to make peer-to-peer connections to each other and then send a message. Each node has all the logic for serving the messaging service and for sending messages. There is no intermediary, is responsible for the delivery of messages or their storage.
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. The platform offers users such innovative solutions as Quantum Secure Hash-based cryptography and Capable of scaling linearly
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? In 2020, black hats (hackers) are trying to abuse our digital lives by obtaining confidential information for illegal purposes. These actions lead to fraud and hacking on the network, financial problems, identity theft and annoying advertising. Online crime often affects our physical security. If your device has been stolen or sold, a hacker can easily recover your payment details and passwords.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Oddly enough, saving telecommunications from the quantum threat lies in the same area as the threat itself. Communication based on the transmission of single microparticles is theoretically impossible to listen to, since the laws of quantum physics do not allow you to measure the parameters of a microparticle without distorting them. This phenomenon, known as the observer principle (and often confused with Heisenberg's uncertainty principle), in theory eliminates the main problem of "classical" communication — the ability to listen. Trying to listen to the signal distorts the message. Trying to listen to the signal distorts the message. Therefore, a significant percentage of interference on the line means that it is being tapped. Of course, you want not only to know that you are being listened to, but also to prevent information from falling into the wrong hands. Therefore, quantum cryptosystems usually use a "quantum" communication line to transmit a one-time encryption key, which, in turn, is used to encrypt the message and broadcast over a normal communication line. That is, the quantum cryptosystem of key distribution performs exactly the same role as the asymmetric cryptographic algorithms that are going to fall under the pressure of quantum computing. So, in case of suspicion of eavesdropping, the potentially intercepted key is simply not used, and the transfer of important data goes only if the quantum key transfer was successful.

Your motivation is OK but your hardware falls short to the required specs.
See Build Your Node for the minimum requirements.
Are you willing to invest in the appropriate hardware?
