Dusk ICO & Token Sale

Cryptocurrencies powered by message passing Byzantine Agreement (BA), use cryptographic sortation in order to carry out the functionalities of block proposals, validations, and subsequent insertion into a tamperproof sequence of blocks. In its essence, each node of the network, while collecting (and further relaying) pending transactions, runs a computationally light-weight process that yields in a pseudo-random fashion which benefits the operations of production and validation of a new block. The Dusk network makes use of a decentralized and privacy-oriented digital currency that evolves the CryptoNote protocol through the groundbreaking discoveries in the field of Byzantine consensus and pseudo-random functions by world-renowned cryptographers.


Dusk aims to achieve the best trade-off between a decentralized choice and efficiency of Accumulator technology.

About Dusk

Dusk radically departs from any other blockchain by employing an adaptive consensus mechanism, called Segregated Byzantine Agreement (SBA) which does not require the computational intensity of proof-of-work and is a fairer alternative to proof-of-stake. The Dusk blockchain is engineered to provide the best possible tradeoff between security, efficiency, and flexibility. In order to improve network and block-generation efficiency and privacy of transacting peers, SBA allows only normal transactional nodes to compete for block generation, while it restricts the computationally and network intensive tasks associated with verification, voting, and notarization operations to non-transactional nodes called provisioners. Furthermore, they contribute distributed storage infrastructure in the Dusk online or offline file transfer, and enable runtime payments of high QoS transmission by handling state channels for communicating peers through a novel mechanism of secure tunnel switching.
