Fast & Confidential Transactions

Instant Settlement Finality &  Zero-Knowledge proofs

A distributed Financial Market Infrastructure (dFMI) should provide clear and final settlement of transactions. Moreover, the settlement of transactions should be instant or near-instant (<15s). The popular Proof-of-Work consensus mechanism used by Bitcoin and Ethereum does not address these requirements.

Therefore, we designed a more performant consensus called Succinct Attestation agreement that enables instant settlement of transactions within 15 seconds.

Powered by Zero-Knowledge technology, organizations use Dusk Network to issue tokens that are governed by privacy-preserving smart contracts. Harnessing the power of DLT while respecting confidentiality agreements, and data protection legislation.
