    Jeez. Put a little effort in to it and paste in something from it so we at least know you looked at it. That’s like answering “Go look at your website.” when asked, “What do you know about our company?” :rofl:

    Hi All !

    Just for everyone to understand that I perfectly understand the value of XX -Project and its fundamental difference from any others:

    1. What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?

    A distributed network is a network of stand-alone computers connected by distribution middleware. They help to share different resources and capabilities to provide users with a single and integrated coherent network. A decentralized network is one that requires several parties to make their own independent decisions. In such a decentralized system, there is no single centralized agent making decisions on behalf of all parties. Instead, each party, also called the Peer, makes local autonomous decisions regarding its own individual goals that may conflict with those of other peers Peers interact directly with each other and exchange information or provide services to other peers. Both systems have their pros and cons. I can only say that over the past 10 years we have made a lot of progress towards decentralization, and of course I definitely like this.

    1. 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.

    I do not think anyone needs to be told who David Chaum is. Therefore, it seems to me that this project definitely has a future. And very soon we will definitely need his quantum protection. And I am very pleased to be a part of this great idea and to help him bring his ideas to life.

    1. 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?

    Because the internet was meant to be free. As in any other system, there is a constant struggle for freedom. Quantum protection is, in my opinion, a great opportunity to protect a free person on the network.

    1. In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

    Quantum computers are definitely a threat to both decentralized and centralized systems. Logic dictates that decentralized should be more fault-tolerant…

    Small changes here:

    i9-9900k, 32Gig RAM, RTX-2080, nvme 1Tb ssd >>> i9-9900k, 32Gig RAM, RTX-2080s, nvme 1Tb Samsung Pro ssd, 500Gb Samsung EVO for GW DB
