Other Reasons
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralized means that there is no single point where the decision is made. Distributed means that the processing is shared across multiple nodes, but the decisions may still be centralized and use complete system knowledge.
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 is easier to use with excellent performance without sacrificing security. The linear scalability would be able to scale up the usage of the xx network platform compare to the predecessors
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? Because of the amount of data (especially private data like our behavior, interest, video, etc.) in the internet growth was scary. Data collected in the last 4 years was as much as the amount of data gathered from when internet was born until 2016. Without a solid privacy system, we will just give absolute power to the current big internet company. And as you know, absolute power, corrupt absolutely
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? a quantum computer would make the cryptographic that secure the decentralized system looks weak. Moreover to the centralized system, the computer capable of trying so many options in one second in order to achieve what they need. So both system if not adapt or integrate with the quantum computer, will just be so vulnerable

Your application seems potentially worthy, but your connection speed seems far below the Revised BetaNet Node Hardware Requirements, would you be able to upgrade it?
