Steve, while the decentralized data or ant farm concept of data storage sounds better from the perspective of eliminating the monopoly style data kings like google so they can't take advantage of our data, our habits, our privacy, I have some questions

1) what happens if individual nodes go dark, people's phones and computers get shut down at night etc?

2) what happens if individuals change/upgrade devices, will data be lost if not transferred properly to newer devices?

3) how is data redundancy built into a decentralized network?

4) is speed of data flow compromised by running through these individual nodes?

5) if this is supposed to replace the internet, what happens to individuals who just want to access data but not be farmers?

Thinking about buying a few just to have some action in the world of cryptos
