Application has my vote
Please provide more info
Overall, looks like a quality application. I approve.
my apologies. I accidentally missed a couple areas. More info is as follows
I have extensive experience posting content on various social media platforms; Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, linkedIn and YouTube.
As part of the growing xx network i am willing to create content. as part of operating an xx node. This is a project i am very passionate about and will dedicate as much time as possible to.
A distributed network uses redundancies to avoid outages but it is still run by one party, while decentralized simply distributes the system over individually owned nodes so that it is not owned by anybody.
Quantum resistance is key given the recent quantum computing developments.
Privacy by default is critical for our future because our personal information can have a large influence if it gets collected, sold, and used for political or economic reasons like it’s been done before. Privacy protection and integrity is important for all humans.
in a centralized network, if a quantum attack on the central unit is successful, it would affect the entire network. Taking that into account I think it would be easy to take down an entire centralized network with a single quantum attack.
Hope this information helps in validating my application. Having it approved would be a true honor!
