While waiting for the launch of Mainnet, the Doge protocol has just released the first Testnet equipped with quantum resistant cryptography.
Tallinn, Estonia – February 28, 2022 – Community blockchain Doge Protocol is pleased to announce the release of its Testnet this month. The Testnet is backed by state-of-the-art quantum resistant cryptography to secure both user accounts as well as inter-node communication against quantum computing threats. Doge Protocol has also launched its Block Explorer which can be used to view transactions, blocks, and account balances.
Doge Protocol is a Quantum Resistant Blockchain that uses PoS (Proof of Stake) consensus. The Doge Protocol Project is community driven.
Codenamed “T0”, the Doge Protocol Testnet uses the Falcon encryption scheme for digital signatures and NTRU HRSS for key wrapping. The use of Falcon and NTRU HRSS encryption schemes makes Doge Protocol one of the first blockchains to secure both communication between nodes and accounts using Quantum Resistant cryptography. This Testnet uses Clique consensus while a later Testnet will switch to PoS consensus.
This Testnet also modifies the UDP discovery protocol to support larger packet sizes using Forward Error Correction (FEC) technology. The transport layer has also been updated from using ECIES to NTRU HRSS for key encapsulation. A new handshake scheme has been introduced that closely follows the TLS specifications as detailed in RFC 8446. Final application encryption keys are derived using HMAC HKDF as detailed in RFC 5869.
“We are excited to share with everyone that we have just released our Testnet which will help us test the waters ahead of the launch of our latest Mainnet. It comes with Quantum Resistant Cryptography to ensure optimal security against quantum computer threats. As part of the Testnet release, we have also released the Quantum Resistant blockchain node software. The node will help connect to the blockchain as well as send/receive transactions and check account balance,” a Doge Protocol community spokesperson said.
According to the spokesperson’s statements, Doge Protocol will release more Testnets before the launch of the final Mainnet. For the Mainnet, the multi-fork blockchain platform the three largest blockchains, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Doge Coin to protect these blockchains from quantum computing threats.
“As we are a community platform, all documentation and code will be community supported and registrations will be through Github. The Testnet code will be released on Github in 6 phases. Since the code is based on Ethereum, with quantum resistance and other features added, the blockchain will also be EVM-enabled.
Speaking further, the spokesperson pointed out that since Doge Protocol is a community project, there is no centralized entity or owner running the business. The whole project is open and decentralized, and therefore anyone who wishes can contribute to the project.
