Marlin (POND) is an open protocol that provides high-performance programmable network infrastructure for DeFi and Web 3.0.
Marlin was co-founded by former Microsoft, Samsung, Cisco engineers and researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Ethereum Foundation. It is an open protocol that provides high-performance programmable network infrastructure for Web 3.0. It supports faster transfer of blocks, transactions, and data between miners, full nodes, and layer 0 users, making the dApp experience smoother and more convenient. The core of the Marlin protocol is a relay node network that uses specialized path adjustment, dynamic flow control, and multipath routing technology for communication to achieve superior performance on weakly connected networks. Because it has nothing to do with the platform, its plug-and-play network module can interoperate with a wide range of consensus algorithms. Marlin's mission is to provide Web 2 similar performance in Web 3 without sacrificing the core principles of decentralization and security.
