Gladius’ goal is to create a fully decentralized, peer to peer, serverless node network to connect bandwidth and storage pools to websites looking for DDoS protection and expedited content delivery. Anyone with a computer can download and run the Gladius peer client in the background to rent out their unused bandwidth and storage space and earn Gladius Tokens (GLA). Large pools with hundreds, if not thousands, of nodes will then be able to handle a continuous stream of requests to validate website connections and block malicious activity.
Client nodes can be started up on any Linux, Windows, or MacOS machine and will automatically run in the background when you choose. Users will be part of localized verification pools. Every website request a user validates will earn them Gladius Tokens. In turn, users can sell these tokens back to websites to create an economic cycle that promotes the growth of the Gladius Network.
The Gladius team is aiming to create a CDN and DDoS mitigation service by using blockchain technology, distributed mining pools and smart contracts. This goal will be met and these technologies will be incorporated throughout the entire course of Phase I which is made up of 3 stages (see Roadmap). Once Phase I is complete, there will be a complete and comprehensive network that is capable of handling several Gbs of connections per second and drastically improving site load times. This will include multi-level protection and a private rollout to select partnered websites.
The aim of Phase II is to finalize the network from Phase I and making it commercially viable on a large scale. This means greatly increasing the amount of data throughput to cope with a far greater demand. Additionally, Gladius node pools will be greatly improved with full vetting and rating processes and smart contracts will be expanded for discovery and identification services.
Once Phase II is complete, there will be a polished network that is ready to take on the demands of hundreds, if not thousands, of websites. Phase II also allows for the possibility of expanding pools. Each pool will be rated and validated to ensure proper performance. Additional CDN features such as static content caching will be added depending on levels of funding reached.
