Virtual Machine - Rusk
Rusk enables you to program smart contracts, power new decentralised applications (dapps) and set parameters for compliance and control.
The Rusk VM relies entirely on zero-knowledge cryptography and is the world’s first Zero-Knowledge Virtual Machine (ZK-VM) implementation. Yes, even gas fee refunds, block rewards and other related transactions are obfuscated.
Zero-Knowledge - PLONK
We are using PLONK, the latest and most recent advancement in zero-knowledge cryptography. Zero-Knowledge is paramount for public blockchain collaboration, because it allows businesses to transact securely and in strict privacy.
Fast Immutable Data - Kelvin
We created Kelvin in order to speed up immutable data storage. Kelvin is a Merkle Tree tool-kit for optimized data structure modelling. This benchmarking page shows just how exceptionally fast and cool Kelvin is.
Consensus - Proof of Blind Bid
Dusk Network is powered by Proof of Blind Bid. Our novel privacy Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm is energy conscious, and brings unprecedented network security due to its dual node structure: Block Generators and Provisioners.
Network Fuel - DUSK
Businesses use DUSK to pay for network services, such as deploying and running a smart contract, transferring DUSK or XSC based security tokens.
For each transaction submitted to the network, DUSK is used to compensate network nodes for bandwidth, verification, and storage.
Security Token Standard - XSC
All to enable businesses of all sizes to easily use our XSC 2.0 standard and issue security tokens. Excited? Explore our use cases here.
"Where the power of permissionless smart contracts and the privacy of permissioned ledgers meet"
Never wait for block confirmations again. Transactions are fast, taking mere seconds to complete and achieve immediate on-chain finality.
Proof of Blind Bid consensus is designed for high-throughput, supporting the needs of businesses of all sizes.
Zero-Knowledge cryptography is our bread and butter. We make privacy programmable on a public ledger.
Dusk Network’s novel Proof of Blind Bid consensus is unforkable. Providing you with a trusted and reliable network
