❓ What Is Decentralization? ❓
In a nutshell, it is the transfer of control and decision making from a centralized entity (an individual, organization, government or company) to a distributed network. One of the most famous examples of that is BTC. The problem with centralization is that banks like HSBC can just decide to ban crypto transactions – not very fair given that it’s your money. IF that banking network was decentralized, all that would be impossible.
