How it works?

Marlin’s high availability and reliability network is made possible with the creation of its versatile bandwidth sharing marketplace, built by its users.

Marlin Demand

Users pay LIN tokens to provision a customized overlay network powered by the Marlin. Nodes provide packet forwarding, routing, on-path processing and data storage allowing for high-scalability, reliability, and untraceable privacy.

Marlin Supply

Users join the network by running an open-source software that is available on all major operating systems (mobiles and routers too!). Running these nodes generates LIN tokens in proportion to the volume of traffic passing through them.

Marlin Power

New nodes join the network by staking LIN tokens and passing regular Proof-of-Availability and Proof-of-Bandwidth checks to ensure network reliability along with guaranteed Quality of Service.

Use Cases

Blockchain

The Marlin network is blockchain-agnostic and is interoperable with traditional web protocols opening a wide range of possibilities.

Privacy

Probabilistic forwarding, shell games, anonymous routing, and more, enable privacy preserving packet delivery

Scale

Multipath routing, cut-through routing, multicast trees, and more built on customized transport layers give developers the power to support apps at Google-scale. Sub-second confirmations act as jet fuel for all blockchains

Dapps

Dynamic traffic steering, path conditioning, route optimizations and more allow for lightning fast, high volumes of information supporting a seamless experience in next-gen video games and HD streaming through IPFS

Messaging

Marlin's adopted network constructs support unfettered communication, free from centralized maneuvering and surveillance

Streaming

Marlin's elastic, distributed and resilient Hybrid Network Topology provides a low latency expandable buffering solution suiting decentralized media stream requirements

Trading

Marlin's efficienct multicast and pathconditioning adds responsiveness to decentralized trading platforms, offering reliable and ultra-low latency trading services

Gaming

Marlin's supercharged scalable network, accelerates online gaming experience and makes it jitter-free, while load balancing irons out massive spikes, avoiding performance degradation

Enterprises

Dynamic traffic steering, path conditioning, route optimizations and more allow for lightning fast, high volumes of information supporting a seamless experience in next-gen video games and HD streaming through IPFS
