Can you give some answers on the last questions?
Good application. Please answer remaining questions.
If answered the last questions you will have my vote also.
Hi All, Thanks fore your replies and feedback. Below my answers to the
last 4 questions;
- What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
Answer: A key point about decentralization, is that there’s no central point of control. Large Internet applications and services are
distributed, but most are centralized because the company running them can alter or stop the system.
- 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.
Answer: To be honest I don’t have enough experience to give you a detailed answer. I only can say that xx network will be decentralized
and private that’s what have trickert me to fill out the application in
the first place.
- 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?
Answer: Internet privacy will be the biggest next thing for the near future. The time is now to make a stand and stop the big tech companies
for making billions with our (meta) data.
- In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?
Answer: Quantum computers are a big threat because they can be used not only to hack financial, goverment and other critical systems.
Centralized systems are easy to hack and put down by owners, coverment or big tech companies.
So thanks again for replying to my applications and if there are more question or sugestions please let me know
Good response and glad to see you here in the forum. You have my vote.
YES I have been selected as a BetaNet node in xx network’s initial decision!. Hoping for Final decision too! Thank you voters
