    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? A distributed chat system has multiple servers. Each client connects to one of these servers, and then the servers transmit data to each other to give the correct result to the user. While in the same example, the decentralized chat system relies on its own users to make peer-to-peer connections with each other and then send a message
    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.
    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? With an increasing number of devices collecting user information, consumers are increasingly wondering how companies recognize, use and protect their personal information. Talk about digital security is worrying, with users fearing that their sensitive information will be misused or disclosed to harm them. In e-commerce, protecting user information and making business practices transparent to shoppers is a matter of respect. When a user is fully aware of how their data is used and has control over their own online user experience, their trust in the company is strengthened. And the more trust the user has in the brand, the stronger customer loyalty in the long term.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Possibility of cracking digital signatures is a very, very serious threat. An attacker armed with a quantum computer can forge any digital signature, claim to be its owner, and take over its digital assets.
