Hey Guys,just updating some of the questions I missed to answer last time:
Q:What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
A.A decentralized network distributes information-processing workloads across multiple devices instead of relying on a single central server. Each of these separate devices serves as a mini central unit that interacts independently with other nodes.
On the other hand, a distributed networks are composed of equal, interconnected nodes, meaning that data ownership and computational resources are shared evenly across the entire network
I believe we should take best of both worlds.While we should have distributed network to ensure a base-line availability and performance and leverage on decentralized network to cater for seamless performance
Q: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.
A.xx network is next-generation, quantum secure blockchain using a unique consensus protocol.It leverages on de-centralised network.Being quantum safe with speed and scalability really stands it out.
Q: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?
A.Privacy and security are basic building blocks of any good design.It has to be embedded into the architecture from Day 1.With ever-increasing cyber attacks in recent times, it again highlights the importance of having “Privacy by default”
Q:In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?
A.Data in the blockchain can either be open or encrypted and readable only by those for whom it is intended.
Quantum computing poses a threat to blockchain technology because it depends the basic security assumption of elliptic curve cryptography, namely, that computers cannot factor large numbers effectively
Being quantum-safe by design is really impressive for xx-networks.
Also want to highlight that I don’t have the additional hardware yet-will buy ,if got selected for the nodes.Off course, am very passionate and enthusiastic about getting part of this initiative.
GPU is critical rest i guess shouldn’t be a problem.
you have my vote.
I would like to personally vouch for this applicant and he has my vote. I have known him personally and professionally for a long time and he is an outstanding technologist. He will be a great asset to the xx network family.
