Dusk Network: Private, Secure, Decentralized Data Communication Blockchain Launches
Controlling information has been an important mission of numerous enterprises, governments and institutions throughout history. With a new hand on what gets to be used for general knowledge to the public and what is to remain locked up in secret for only a few people, countries across the globe have been held under the control of nearly authoritarian governments. Also, if a key piece of info is labeled dangerous by a political regime or the local government, it may be censored entirely.
The major piece of info is being suppressed fights against all of the basic human needs on information and speech. People throughout the years have always fought hard to share knowledge and information for specific people, even when the penalty for such contribution is death or retaliation from the authorities in power.
First it was sharing lore and story, then came the age of books on paper. Thousands upon thousands of books have been destroyed, burned or thrown away through the ages by religious establishments. Today however, the internet gives people instant access to untold amounts of knowledge to help people instantly learn or share what they’ve learned with other people – even those across the globe.
The world today is very needy of the internet to release information to the world that is focused on developments crucial to the wellbeing of humanity. This includes information on cruel regimes, human rights violations, wars and so on. Governments of the world find it is very easy to stop information from reaching the intended parties by censoring protocols that would reach across borders, websites and related services.
What this means is information that is essential to certain groups of people can’t be accessed by them when it is most important if that’s what the government declares.
North Korea for example has used blanket censorship programs, where the world doesn’t even know what is going on inside the highly secretive area. Human rights violations like cruelty, slavery, trafficking, famine, or aggressive crackdowns and censorships by state police authorities along with information that is even worse is often hidden to the world.
After months of research the Dusk Foundation is proud and eager to finally unveil the details of the Dusk Network roadmap. Thanks to our early investors and the whole team for the many (literal) dusk-till-dawn sessions https://t.co/2l3mEivsOi #ProofOfBlindBid #dusknetwork

Bypassing Censorship With The Dusk Foundation
Now we have the Dusk Foundation, a blockchain platform that was created to help people process or share information with other parties in a way that is hidden from authorities who would like to censor it. Other than the information itself, the involved people – sender or receiver, remain hidden as well. There are no risks of the information or people involved, ever being discovered by the government.
What Dusk Provides
Anyone using the network, receives an address that doesn’t link to their wallets directly. The newly added protection layer of public address means if someone was to attempt to locate a user’s wallet location, they would be unable to. The top layer address, therefore is the stealth one – it leaves no trace of the originally connected wallets. It’s because of this, no one would be able to receive the information.
Like stealth addresses, anyone sending the information would be able to use Dusk Foundation’s RingCT Signature Technology, further ensuring the sender is just as safe as the person receiving. With the new layer of protection, the sender remains completely anonymous, no parties can be traced, making the users completely safe.
Anonymous Network Layers:
Layers operating with anonymity, receive the IP addresses of the sender and receiver without it being traceable as it is obscured as code. It means that the IP address is just as untraceable as the user names of the people involved. This makes it impossible to track the physical presence of anyone who partakes in the transaction of information. The users remain completely safe and secure.
Non-Interactive Verifiable Secret Sharing Scheme:
Other than the users, the identities of the parties involved, operate on a network ledger that is the priority. There is also a secret protocol for registering the transfers on the network on various ledger forms.
It’s all accomplished on a platform that used technology for allowing node operators to note down the specific transaction, without ever being able to determine who the users are or getting their information. At the same time, the person operating the node can remain completely anonymous from blockchain technology, thereby keeping them safe as the users are.
Cryptographically Committed Provisionals:
New block generators are used to communicate among themselves to guarantee that data is encrypted and synced. It is the most important part of the system in terms of anonymity because of the nodes need to stay in constant communication while remaining protected from seeing eyes on the highest state of alert. There is no compromise of data that can be made between them, meaning the entire system simply cannot fail.
These are not the only benefits the platform offers, as it is a direct descendant of strong blockchain technology. Other advantages include:
Always on system: With as many block generators as there are, someone is always available to note a transaction.
Multiple ledgers in a decentralized manner: Any user’s data is strongly encrypted and will be backed up to stop the chance of data being lost.
Dusk token: Using the native token gives the ability for instant transfers on the system, so users will be able to create incentives on block generators in order to note the transfer of data.
The new Dusk Foundation is unique as the plan shows the real-world potential when using decentralized technology like the blockchain can be for helping humanity. With this, there is a new potential for freedom in terms of sharing knowledge and information as the platform expands. With its global adoption, no authority in the world will be able to suppress information of any type.
The Dusk Foundation has a unique plan that would see the true potential of decentralized technology such as blockchain being used for the betterment of humanity. With it, freedom of information will be truly achieved and as the platform would expand, the worldwide use would mean that no authority of any nation would be able to suppress any kind of information.
