    • To contribute to a promising project
    • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? In decentralized networks, every participant has a voice. But in distributed networks, nodes make decisions, so they can act together and it is centralized.

    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? It is possible to crack centralized systems with quantum computers, but as for decentralized, maybe in the future it will be possible, but I hope not soon.

    Ok :ok_hand: :+1:

    Good application, I support it and you have my vote

    If you plan to place in a dc, be sure to do it WITH a gpu.Otherwise you are not complying with the requirements and will not recieve compensation.

    Thanks for your respond, I will certainly do everything according to the norms and build server with GPU, which I already have, MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER.
