    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A distributed network is similar to a decentralized network in the sense that it forgoes a single centralized master server in favor of multiple network owners. However, distributed networks are composed of equal, interconnected nodes, meaning that data ownership and computational resources are shared evenly across the entire network. The term “distributed network” is sometimes used to describe a network that is simply geographically distributed but may follow a top-down node hierarchy model. In most instances, though, the term refers to a network where node locations and computational resources are evenly distributed.
    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. xx network is implementing blockchain technology and cryptography which obscures metadata to offer a private, decentralized messaging and payment platform.
    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? The main concern/issue involves the sharing of data from multiple sources. Because this policy gathers all information and data searched from multiple engines when logged into Google, and uses it to help assist users, privacy becomes an important element.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? In practice, quantum computing poses only a marginal threat, Public-key cryptography is a common technique used for encryption and authentication. Internet connections (HTTPS), blockchains, and many other applications use this technique. In most cases, their security relies on hard mathematical problems such as integer factorization, which can't be cracked easily by a traditional computer.

    I have ordered a video card geforce rtx 3060ti waiting for one weeks
    (will be the final server configuration:Dell R730 / 2x E5-2673v4/ 128-256gb ram / raid 10 ssd / rtx 3060ti)

    This video card isnt supported you need at least a 3060ti the 3060 isn’t conform specs

    Nvidia Turing, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 or greater

    The rtx 3060 is a card manufactured after the handbook that’s why it’s not mentioned .
    100% rtx 3060 doesn’t meet the specs you need at least if ampera series a rtx 3060ti if it would be the Turing serie you will need a rtx 2070 the benchmark of the rtx 3060 is less than of a 2070
    So it’s a no for me .
    If you don’t meet the specs you will not have my vote

    ok thanks i will take it into account and replace it with another 3060Ti
