The Path to Mainnet: Dusk Roadmap

The path to mainnet

Today, we are excited to share our updated roadmap. 


This roadmap has been meticulously put together and outlines our route to Mainnet. It serves as a clear guide, both internally and externally, for the steps, milestones, and deliverables that are needed to guarantee a Mainnet that not only functions by crypto standards, but is capable of supporting regulated assets and scaling to keep pace with the financial services industry. 

Understanding the roadmap

This roadmap strives to be as clear and detailed as possible while providing an easy overview at a glance. 

Visualized as a graphic, you can easily see the deliverables and requirements. On our roadmap page, you will find more information and details on the deliverables.

We hope that this provides a good balance of information for the most technically-minded out there to those who want a sense of the direction without getting into the nitty-gritty details. 

Dusk’s mission 

Dusk’s mission is to bring regulated, real-world assets to everybody’s wallet by creating a blockchain that is both private and compliant. While we have condensed our mission down into a nice statement and the three pillars of privacy, compliance, and real-world assets, it is a huge goal that requires an intense amount of work. 

Opening up the crypto sandbox means we have to essentially be good at everything; we have to be decentralized, permissionless, and immutable while also being compliant, private, and a provider of the infrastructure. 

This has led to the creation of newer projects like Citadel, our decentralized licensing protocol which finds a particularly strong use-case in private, decentralized KYC. 

It also means that we often have to move slower than a pure crypto project would, as they do not need to provide technology that meets - or even exceeds - the standards and requirements that large institutions have. Not to mention the need to balance our messaging and focus so that it meets the desires of our wonderful community and our institutional partners. 

In short, what we are working on is huge and hasn’t been done before. So, we thank you for your patience while we take the time to get it right.


What next?

The updated roadmap, along with the rebrand a few months ago, solidifies our intentions, goals, and identity, and helps us to communicate where we are and where we are headed. 

The whole team is focused and excited to contribute to Mainnet, and offer their skills to building the infrastructure that can make classical finance more accessible. 

We will release explainers and deep dives into the roadmap in the coming weeks, both in written and spoken form, as well as provide regular updates as targets are met. 

We hope to release more demos and behind-the-scenes content too, and we look forward to being able to share partnerships and agreements as and when we are able to. We have a lot going on, we just can’t share everything immediately.
