What is Dust Protocol (DUST)

Dust Protocol ( DUST/USDT – Trade it here) is the fuel that drives the entire DeGods ecosystem. DeGods is an experimental collection of NFTs on the Solana ecosystem. Dust is an Internet protocol designed to resist a number of attacks currently in active use to censor Internet communication. Dust uses a novel technique for establishing a secure, blocking-resistant channel for communication over a filtered channel. Once a channel has been established. Dust packets are indistinguishable from random packets and so cannot be filtered by normal techniques.

What is DUST Project about?

Dust is a protocol designed to provide protocol unobservability in order to implement Kopsell’s concept of blocking resistance as a necessary prerequisite to achieving censorship resistance. The Dust protocol is designed to protect against an attacker that utilizes Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) to fingerprint protocols for the purpose of blocking or rate-limiting connections. In order to establish protocol unobservability, all packets consist entirely of encrypted or random single-use bytes so as to be indistinguishable from each other and random packets.

Dust is designed to protect against current attacks, which are based on matching fingerprints of protocols against blacklists of known protocols. An obvious counteract against the Dust protocol is to switch from blacklist filtering to whitelist filtering.

The DUST Protocol belongs to the NFT project DeGod. This is an “experimental collection” of vibrant colored profile pictures, which are issued on the Solana (SOL) blockchain. DUST protocol is the utility token for the DeGods NFT collection. Holders of the NFTs can earn DUST by staking their tokens.
