    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? In a decentralized network there is not one, but many nodes, each separate point interacts on an independent way with each other. A distributed network has one big center and the nodes are distributed equally.

    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computers must be connected in a big scale and the totality of all of this power processing will become much less vurnerable than any centralized system.
