What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? decentralized
As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the Elixxir platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions. Nodes are selected to work together by a decentralized randomized algorithm. This creates increased privacy and network integrity. All per-transaction public key operations are pre-computed; only “hash functions” are used in real-time per-transaction.
Privacy by Default is a goal of the Elixxir Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? The lack of privacy on the Internet is a reality that is already changing everyone's lives, creating victims and having very serious consequences on people who, without knowing it, have made their lives public.

This is my inscription, I have the necessary machinery since I have invested this last week a new medium power equipment and I think that although(Lenovo 510-071CB con i5 a 8400, 1TB, 8GB) ( 2 GeFORCE GTX 1060, 6GB/ 2 saphire radeon RX580, 4GB) I do not have the computer knowledge, I have the necessary time and support of some working friends to solve problems, I think that helping David in the tests can make me see and understand everything necessary for the equipment and his new vision of technology. I think it is necessary to have a multitude of nodes and to have one in the north of Spain will be very beneficial for the community. I am very interested in being part of the team and if I am not selected I will continue to support and help with the Spanish speaking team. greetings to all. This is going to be interesting!



I am willing to collaborate with the project in all possible ways, translations, in the telegram group, sharing all possible news, writing articles and, of course, helping to validate Elixxir’s network, I know I don’t have the knowledge, but I studied the technical role and we can all help each other. :smiley:



Glad to see a strong desire to be part of this also by offering to be involved in the Spanish side gives added value

I want to encourage all participants and make a union between all to collaborate as a team, each can bring their wisdom in the field of technology and thus help those who do not know so much about programming nodes. I am especially committed to solving problems in Spanish, a greeting to all, strength with Elixxir
