Doge Protocol releases Quantum Resistant blockchain Testnet with Block Explorer

Awaiting the launch of Mainnet, the Doge Protocol has just released the first Testnet which comes equipped with quantum resistant cryptography.

Tallinn, Estonia – February 28, 2022 – Community-driven 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 from quantum computer threats. Doge Protocol has also launched its Block Explorer that 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 Falcon crypto scheme for Digital Signatures and NTRU HRSS for key encapsulation. The utilization of the Falcon and NTRU HRSS crypto schemes makes Doge Protocol one of the first blockchains to secure both inter-node communication and accounts using Quantum Resistant cryptography. This Testnet utilizes Clique consensus while a subsequent Testnet will shift to PoS consensus.

This Testnet also changes the UDP discovery protocol to accommodate larger packet sizes by 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. The final application encryption keys are derived using HMAC HKDF as detailed in RFC 5869. 

“We are excited to share with all that we have just released our Testnet that will help us to test the waters before the launch of our final Mainnet. It comes with Quantum Resistant Cryptography to ensure optimum security from quantum computer threats. As part of the Testnet release, we have also released the Quantum Resistant blockchain node software. The node will help to connect to the blockchain as well as send/receive transactions and check account balance”, stated a spokesperson from the Doge Protocol community.

Per the statements of the spokesperson, Doge Protocol will be releasing more Testnets before the launch of the final Mainnet. For the Mainnet, the blockchain platform will multi-fork the three largest blockchains, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Doge Coin to protect these blockchains from Quantum Computer threats. 

“As we are a community-driven platform, the whole documentation and code will be community supported and check-ins will be done via Github. The Testnet code will be released to Github in 6 phases.  Since the code is based on Ethereum, with quantum resistance and other features added on top of it, the blockchain will be EVM compatible as well.” 

Speaking further, the spokesperson emphasized that since Doge Protocol is a community-driven project, there is no centralized entity or owner at the helm of the affairs. The entire project is open and decentralized, and hence anybody willing can contribute to the project.
