In November 2018, Dusk Network was the first project to make their tokens available on the Ethfinex & Bitfinex token sale platform. After successfully raising $8.1m in total fundraising (in the depths of the bear market) they secured enough funding for a multi-year runway. The Dusk team have been hard at work building the Dusk Network, culminating in the release of their testnet code this week and listing the DUSK token on Ethfinex & Bitfinex on Thursday.

The Dusk team will also host a dedicated AMA in the Ethfinex Telegram Channel tomorrow, Tuesday 12pm UTC, to give you an in-person update on everything they have been building since their token sale.

About Dusk

The Dusk Network is a privacy-oriented blockchain protocol, that anyone can use to create zero-knowledge dApps. By allowing Dusk to be openly accessible, Dusk Network aims to become the privacy infrastructure of choice for an entire ecosystem of solutions. Dusk Network is secured by Segregated Byzantine Agreement (SBA). SBA includes Proof of Blind Bid, a private proof-of-stake implementation, that enables block generators to stake anonymously. The team is focussed on delivering a blockchain that offers high-throughput, scalability and instant transaction finality. Due to their use of zero-knowledge proofs, companies and projects are able to create real-world applications that can adhere to strict compliance requirements, whilst still offering data privacy. Dusk’s adoption strategy focuses on the security token market, which is in need of a purpose-built blockchain. To explore the Dusk Network technology in more detail, see the Dusk website and Telegram group
