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