Dusk Browser Nodes allow you to verify zero-knowledge (ZK) proofs sent over the Dusk Network directly in your browser, even when idle. It does all of its magic automatically and just requires a couple of clicks to get it up and running. Of course we’ve designed it in a way that by default it only runs in the background, when your PC is handling simple tasks, or when you are not using your computer at all, so that it never impacts your browsing performance.

By delegating workload to Browser Nodes we can tap into a vast mass of regular PC consumers that work together to generate computational power to verify zero-knowledge proofs generated by the transactors of the network.

This is the first step in bringing Dusk Network closer to a fully browser based blockchain experience.” — Emanuele Francioni, Project & Tech Lead at Dusk Network

As you know, Dusk Network advances ZK-cryptography in numerous ways. ZK-cryptography is awesome, not only is it a vital tech stack to achieve bulletproof privacy on-chain, it also grants us the flexibility to lead the very innovative space of ZK-Smart Contracts, a technological feat that not a single project has managed to ace.

Please alert us if you have any feedback. You can do so either by DM’ing one of our Telegram admins, or report to Matteo Ferretti, our Lead VM Architect (former dev at Mozilla) who made all of this possible: matteo@dusk.network.

We will be integrating future versions of the Dusk Browser Node into various marketing campaigns, so you can support the Network, increase Node distribution, and earn Dusk Tokens, as soon as possible.

That’s all for today! Don’t forget to like, subscribe and rate the add-on. Our business lead Jelle Pol was the first to be totally unbiased about it :).
