This type of computer network differs from centralized networks in that they do not have a single central unit. Instead there is a series of computers that work together to control and manage the network. In this way, a certain level of fault tolerance is added thanks to the fact that this set of computers take on certain tasks on the network.
However, the highest cost was for the planet. Only one of these wee wee pads takes approximately XNUMX years to decompose. Putting ourselves in the best of cases, a dog uses XNUMX pad daily for only XNUMX years of his life, so when he is a puppy and when he is elder he would use XNUMX soakers in total. If we take into account that only in Spain there are XNUMX million dogs, mostly of mini race, with greater tendency to use wee wee pads and assuming that at least XNUMX% use them, we are talking about a figure of XNUMX wee wee pads that are used daily. Tons and tons of waste are thrown daily to the planet so that our dog does not spoil our house. In this type of network there is still the risk of a total catastrophic failure. This is possible because decentralized networks may still fail if the network coordinator is taken out of service. With the collapse of a coordinating computer, the rest of the computers on that subnet are left without service and disconnected from the main network. If, for example, the main network coordinating computer goes down, the rest of the subnets are scattered. In either case, the loss of a coordinator would lead to a disconnection of lesser or greater magnitude.
A misconception about this type of network is that the coordinators' actions are completely autonomous. The truth is that these act as a central unit within a larger network. A vestige of centralized networks that still survives within this model.
A good example of this type of network is Facebook, Twitter, Google. All these services have subnets within a large network and together they are capable of handling all the services they provide. In the world of cryptocurrencies, a decentralized network example case is Dash o EOS, whose operation depends on this type of network organization.
