What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralization is the form and content of social relations formed during the development of the Internet, and is the production process of a new type of network content relative to "centralization." In the field of computer technology, the decentralized structure uses distributed accounting and storage. There is no centralized node. The rights and obligations of any node are equal. The data blocks in the system are shared by the nodes with maintenance functions in the entire system. Maintenance, any node stop working will not affect the overall operation of the system. Distributed network storage technology is to store data scattered on multiple independent machines and equipment. The distributed network storage system adopts a scalable system structure, uses multiple storage servers to share the storage load, and uses location servers to locate storage information. This not only solves the bottleneck problem of a single storage server in the traditional centralized storage system, but also improves the reliability of the system This type of organization can effectively improve the efficiency of information transmission. I support both
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. It's the level 0, the safe base.
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? Solving privacy protection on the underlying network is more efficient and safer than solving privacy protection on the application layer.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? I don't know when a quantum computer will come, but it will come, so be prepared for that day and find a decentralized system that can protect your digital assets from a quantum computer attack.

Can you upgrade the bandwidth and what specs hardware will you have?
