DUSK Network

Completed

Details

DECENTRALIZED. PRIVATE. COMMUNICATION.

The DUSK Network is a decentralized infrastructure that enables fast, anonymous and secure bi-directional transmission of data among equipotent peers, paid for by a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency: DUSK. 1 - DUSK Anonymous Network Layer A gossip oriented communication tier inspired by I2P. 2 - Segregated Byzantine Agreement A novel privacy-oriented consensus algorithm vastly more efficient than PoW or PoS. 3 - Secure Tunnel Switching A protocol allowing cryptocurrency payments for time-unbound and fast data transmission. We conceived the DUSK Network to be the first unrestricted and fully distributed communication network that does not compromise high data-rate transmission capabilities with the security and anonymity of its peers. The system features a new consensus algorithm vastly more efficient than proof-of-work or proof-of-stake called Segregated Byzantine Agreement, and built on top of a low-latency gossip network which utilizes non-repliable datagram and garlic routing in order to prevent IP Address propagation. Finally, the DUSK Network is complemented with an off-online file transfer mechanism and with realtime Dusk payment channel to enable undetectable and fast peer-to-peer data communication through a technique we call Secure Tunnel Switching.
