We spoke with Gladius Co-Founder Alex Godwin over Telegram. Here are his answers to our questions.
How big of an issue are DDoS attacks for websites?
DDoS attacks are an incredibly common and devastating aspect of the modern internet. As more and more of commerce and communication moves to the web, delays or downtime can mean hundreds of thousands of dollars lost.
What is the main benefit of having Gladius utilize blockchain technology?
The main benefits are resilience, security, and scalability. What we mean by that is that we can have a combination and payment system that is secure and resilient to attack, as well as allowing us to reach more nodes and open the market to a previously untapped resource.
What role does the token play in the network?
The token allows polling ability, payment, and spam protection by requiring a stake in the ecosystem before you can list in a market or become a node.
When do you estimate the network will be fully functional?
We have plans to be functional with a small set of websites by March, however we will be incrementally releasing alpha code to the public before then.
