      Hi Worthy,

      My answers,

      What is the difference between …

      I consider that the main difference is in how and where the decision is made and how the information is shared throughout the control nodes in the system.
      “Decentralized Network do not distribute data storage and processing evenly across the entire network and still rely on main servers, albeit more than one per network”.
      “Distributed networks are composed of equal, interconnected nodes, meaning that data ownership and computational resources are shared evenly across the entire network”.

      As best as you can given currently available information…

      The main value propositions that I identify about the xx network are fast, secure (quantum) transactions and the protection of privacy.

      Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform…

      Internet privacy is important because we are often uploading our personal, financial information, beliefs, political orientation, etc. to the Internet, through social networks, messaging systems and payment platforms, so all that information persists in some Internet database and if this information is not properly protected, it can be used for other fines without your consent.

      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum…

      Quantum computers will have greater processing capacity than a digital (binary) computer and it would be possible for them to easily break most of the public key algorithms that we know today (asymmetric cryptography).
      Obviously, centralized systems will have the greatest problem because everything is concentrated in a single unit.


      Good application with a good response. You have my support.

      Thank you for your additional answers. You have my vote.

      Good application and great location!
