Dusk Network: Starting the Browser Nodes Era.
Dusk Network is excited to announce Browser Nodes. The release of our test-version kickstarts our worldwide node-economy!
Our technological adoption has brought us a great community, and we are keen to receive your feedback first-hand. Improving usability and enhancing your experience are key focus points as the legion of nodes grows. Just throw us a DM!
So what do these browser nodes do? 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.
