decentralised paradox Breakdown
This section presents the major issues present within the current Internet structure and how Xuez aims to disrupt the centralized service model by re-engineering the next generation internet infrastructure. By building this new infrastructure from the foundation up, Xuez will provide a decentralised suite of products and services available on a truly decentralised and distributed network.
Centralised corporate dependency
All computer software that has been built at the platform level has required infrastructure. The current decentralised systems of cyptocurrency are being built primarily upon centralized cloud service entities, a decentralised system is being erected on centralised infrastructure. Consequently, this increasing dependency on centralised services and corporations runs counter to the aims of decentralised ledger technology.
One report, published by Steve Ranger, found that Amazon Web Services dominates the cloud infrastructure services sector with a 33.8 percent global market share, while its three nearest competitors; Microsoft, Google, and IBM, together accounted for 30.8 percent of the market, according to calculations of the analyst.

Cost, knowledge and incentive issue
The expense of hardware investment and other initial cost makes the procurement of centralised services more cost effective for the user. As well as, a serious lack of knowledge base that currently limits the ability of most users to establish a more decentralised model.
Recent technological developments, followed by the rise of Masternodes ecosystems that incentivized the user into running a Masternode, is gradually being adopted, leading to an increase in security and infrastructure vulnerability.
The lack of user knowledge combined with advancing techniques requiring advanced coding skill and non-existent user-friendly interface to guide and supports users is quickly precipitating the increased likelihood of potential security weaknesses, which may allow future adversaries to manipulate and exploit centralised mass Masternode servers.
Amazon Dominates the cloud infrastructure market
Market share of cloud infrastructure as a service provider
Research designed to analyse the distribution of market share among the leading providers of cloud services by Helen Beckett concluded that Amazon Web Services and Microsoft’s Azure are the indisputable leaders, predicting that both Amazon and Google will capture 76 percent of all cloud revenue in 2018, and expand its share to 80 percent by 2020
This causes a growingly restrictive paradox as a consequence of a decentralised platform being established on highly centralised infrastructure. This increasing reliance on centralised services overthrows the main objective of decentralisation and turns the strength of decentralised.
