Other Reasons for a better world
What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? the decentralized have multiple mini-centers connected and each center has lots of nodes/individuals, distributed is more mashed so there's no mini-centers.
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. xx network is quantum resistant which many other blockchains are not. xx network offers privacy which very little other blockchains do. xx network has math behind which many other blockchains don't. xx network had a very thorough approach in building, testing, releasing its implemenation and network.
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 we would live in a perfect world would prolly need very little privacy, but we do not. privacy is one of the fundamental rights of a person. fundamental.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? quantum computers will allow centralized system to lose their protections/security. the same will happen with a big number of decentralized system also. but not to the xx network cause it is quantum resistant.

Worth considering application.
