What about us


The concept of Dusk was conceived early 2018. The restricted DevNet was launched on December 2018, TestNet and Mainnet are to be released Q1 and Q2 of 2019 respectively.

Since its inception Dusk Core has more than doubled in a short space of time and attracted advisors from various disciplines. Along the way, we discovered novel ways to implement bulletproofs and zero-knowledge cryptography in places where it had not been used before. This accelerated the through-put and scalability of our technology even further while preserving the privacy requirements demanded by buyers and sellers of digital securities.

Together, the Dusk community and Dusk Core continue to work towards our common goal of global adoption of our blockchain and its XSC digital security standard.

Our values

What we build defines who we are. We strive to build a bulletproof system that uses cutting edge technology and is accessible for anyone.


Security of the network is our utmost priority. It needs to be bulletproof and continue undisrupted under the harshest conditions. Bulletproofs technology verifies that information stored in a transaction does not contain false information, this furthers the security on a whole other level.


We build Dusk Network for the common good. Our code is published under the MIT license which is a permissive license that should aid advancements in blockchain development and cryptography. Dusk Network is for anyone. We don’t gatekeep our technology and anyone can use it to create a token based on the XSC standard.

Cutting edge

We are pioneers that strive to innovate. We do not only operate in a technical field that is rapidly evolving, but also build a solution that needs to comply with regulations that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. This requires build-in flexibility and being at the frontier of technology.


Dusk Network is a globally developed initiative led by Dusk Core located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
