Doge Protocol Whitepapers
The underlying technology behind Doge Protocol is spread across various areas, including Distributed Computing, Blockchains, Cryptography and more. Every major building-block of the Doge Protocol platform has one or more associated whitepapers, that detail the technology used.
Doge Protocol Vision
This paper lays out the vision of the Doge Protocol platform & ecosystem. The vision itself will evolve over time and expand to solve various real-world problems.
This whitepaper goes over quantum resistance in the Doge Protocol blockchain. This important paper explains the reasons why quantum computers are a threat to blockchains. Quantum Computers can break the cryptographic security of blockchains by using Shor's and Grover's algorithm. This whitepaper details how the Doge Protocol blockchain will provide security from such quantum computer threats.
An effective consensus scheme is required for a blockchain to function properly, guarding against various problems such as double-spending, malicious validators and 51% attacks. This whitepaper explains the proof-of-stake consensus model of Doge Protocol, while going over the various trade-offs involved. It also briefly talks about a hybrid consensus model that the system may evolve to.
Data Availability is equally important for blockchains in addition to security and consensus. While many blockchain whitepapers discuss security and consensus, many leave out data availability. This whitepaper explains why data availability is critical for blockchains and also goes over both the short term & long term data availability solutions. There is also a first-of-it's-kind time-capsule solution proposed in this whitepaper.
An important goal of Doge Protocol is to secure the three largest blockchains from quantum computer threats. Bitcoin, Ethereum and Dogecoin use cryptography schemes that can be broken using quantum computers. In addition to this, blockchain platforms have to be well decentralized. Doge Protocol will solve these two problems by forking all these three blockchains along with DogeP tokens. This whitepaper explains the rationale behind this multi-fork effort, the problems it will solve and the allocation model of the Doge Protocol blockchain.
