Hi, please answer the last 4 items.

Hi, joelrb

  1. The primary difference is how/where the decision is made and how the information is shared throughout the control nodes in the system.

Decentralized means that there is no single point where the decision is made. Every node makes a decision for it’s own behaviour and the resulting system behaviour is the aggregate response.

Distributed means that the processing is shared across multiple nodes, but the decisions may still be centralized and use complete system knowledge.

  1. Elixxir is fast and scalable (>100,000 TPS), privacy centric, and is 51% attack resistant.

  2. Elixxir goal is launching a privacy, scalable, high-performing solution capable of providing the benefits of blockchain technology to an unlimited number of mainstream consumers

  3. Privacy and Payments should be private by default, it is a basic human right.

Please give me the opportunity to launch the node: I am ready to launch the node and have already agreed with the datacenter on renting 1 unit for the server for BetaNet.
