Hey guys, I'm an Ethereum developer and I'm new here so if this question should be posted somewhere else I apogize in advance. So I studied the first ripple whitepaper(not the one published in 2018), "The Ripple Protocol Consensus Algorithm", and wanted to ask some questions(any help would be greatly appreciated): 1) firstly, what is the difference between a node and a server in Ripple? According to the whitepaper "any entinty running the Ripple Server Software is a server". I get this. We have stock servers and validator-servers? Is it the same if I call a server, a node. Intuitively I feel like running a stock-server in Ripple is kind of the same as running a GETH node in eth, right? This may sound simple but I want to know what is what. 2) is there an option for end users to run a UNL? Is the validator-server a UNL? If yes, I can answer the first part(yes). Since you can decide to run a validator server you can run a UNL. 3) the basic idea is that we split the network into subnetworks - UNLs and we verify these UNLs so in the end we combine these and verify the whole system. This is great but isn't it less secure than having a ethereum-like system where every node validates every transaction? 4) what is the latency requirment to participate in the voting process. Apart from the 2 second window for the candidate set submission. I mean is there any other requirement? 5) finally i felt strange with the fact that there is a flag/kick system for nodes in the network combined with the fact that the code isn't open source. Thank you in advance if you took the time to read my questions

2018: XRP Ledger’s Year of Decentralization Ripple has indicated that 2018 is the "Year of XRP Decentralization." In my latest blog, I talk about the history of decentralization, how it's measured or evaluated within crypto, and the concrete steps Ripple is taking to further this aspect of the XRP Ledger. I discuss Ripple's next steps for 2018 when it comes to decentralization, as well as what their goal is at the end of this process. For those that have been curious, or have heard FUD on other forums about XRP's decentralization levels, this is the blog for you! Hope you enjoy; please leave any feedback below!
