Doge Protocol Launches Quantum-Resistant Blockchain Test Network

doge-protocol.jpg.webp The Doge protocol, managed by a group of blockchain enthusiasts, revealed the launch of the test network a week ago. Notably, the test network uses cutting-edge anti-quantum cryptocurrency protection from quantum computer-led attacks. In addition to user accounts, this protects against inter-node interactions. In addition, Doge Protocol revealed the launch of its block browser, which allows viewing of transactions, blocks and account statements.

The Doge protocol refers to blockchains that are inherently resistant to attacks based on quantum computers, and it uses the PoS (Proof-of-Stake) consensus algorithm. It is important to note that the Doge protocol is a community-led initiative. In addition, the Doge protocol test network, known as "T0", uses Falcon cryptocurrency technology for digital signatures. In addition, key encapsulation is done through the NTRU HRSS.

Through the use of NTRU HRSS cryptocurrency technology and Falcon, the Doge protocol has been transformed into a blockchain that can protect accounts and node-to-node interactions using quantum threat-resistant cryptocurrency science. Interestingly, the test network uses Clique consensus. In the future, the test network will start using the PoS consensus mechanism.

By using Forward Error Correction (FEC) technology, the test network modified the UDP discovery protocol to accept larger packet sizes. Even the transport layer updates are key encapsulated by using ECIES to NTRU HRSS. In addition, the merging of different handshake processes to meet the TLS standard has been performed according to RFC 8446. The generation of the final application cryptocurrency key is done using HMAC HKDF as described in RFC 5869.

Commenting on the program, a spokesperson for the Doge protocol community said, "We are pleased to inform you that we recently released our test net, which will allow us to conduct initial tests before launching the official main net. It includes Quantum Resistant Cryptocurrencyology, which provides the highest level of protection against quantum computing attacks. We also released the Quantum Resistant blockchain node software as part of the beta network rollout. The node will assist in connecting to the blockchain, sending/receiving transactions, and checking account balances."

Additional test nests of the Doge protocol will be launched before the final mainnet is launched. On the mainnet side, the blockchain system will also multi-fork Bitcoin, Ether and Doge, three well-known blockchains, to protect them from the threat of attacks launched via quantum computers.

"Because we are a community-led platform, all manuals and programming will be done with the help of the community and all contributions will be done through Github. The test network code will be uploaded to Github using six steps. The blockchain will also interoperate with EVM as the code is built on top of Ether and enhanced with Quantum Revolt and several other features."

A spokesperson for Doge Protocol further emphasized that the project is not governed by any centralized organization or individual. As an open and decentralized project, anyone can contribute to the initiative.
