We usually tell whether a system is really decentralized or not based on how it being run. It is funny how certain large providers purport to offer decentralized systems in nodes which can be deployed in their own cloud systems only, which, by definition, make the full system centralized as it is being managed in a single storage. It is of high importance that node servers run in the most widespread geographical location and hardware device. In order to achieve this goal, we are working on creating two or three different home servers in a single board computer to run decBC nodes. We published the blueprints to our system for people to also run the nodes by themselves at home; we are also going to make the blueprints available for sale in the shop as well.
Another real component for decentralization is its network. In this realm, we are looking forward to embarking on a future project: to come up with a mashed network solution for decBC. A mashed network makes every person running the network one of its nodes, which means that you no longer need to connect the ISP with a router because you are the ISP. This is the ultimate goal of hardware device decentralization. We are excited just by the possibility of seeing Elon Musk expanding his Starlink project to be a potential channel for the decBC nodes; when that happens, we no longer need to connect to the internet to run our nodes.
