    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? a decentralised network secures the safety of the network by making lots of copies of the state of the network, in a distributed network, the state of the network is assembled by a group of nodes that perform a task and are in contact with each other on a need to know basis. I like a more scattered aproach, like the other project that I follow: masq
    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? if privacy is an option, you are dependant of the whims of others whose choice can undo your privacy settings.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? if the cryptographic encryption can be unlocked by ultrafast computers dedicated to finding the secret key, the privacy is gone

    Quantum was really easy?
    Is it a setback to update maybe once a month?
