Mainnet Roadmap

We are actively working towards the Arcana Mainnet release, early January 2023.

DKG Validator Nodes

The DKG subsystem in the Arcana Network protocol is decentralized. At the launch of Mainnet, there will be seven DKG validator nodes in all. Five of these are owned by Arcana and the remaining two validator node are own and managed by trusted partners:

We are actively working with other partners for making the Arcana DKG subsystem truly decentralized.


We have come a long way since our alpha release that offered a distributed DKG. Several shortcomings regarding trusted dealer, robustness have been resolved in the state-of-the-art asynchronous distributed key generation protocol built into the Arcana Network. We have collaborated with some of the leading cryptography experts and researchers to fold recent advances in 'Asynchronous DKG' technology into the Arcana Network platform. Refer to the Arcana Technical Whitepaper for more details on ADKG.



All data stored in Arcana Store is encrypted via secure keys. The encrypted data is accessible only to the data owner. Arcana Network platform components do not store any keys that belong to the dApp user. Data is decrypted only at the client end after user verification.

Key Access

Arcana combines several algorithms to have a highly secure and robust ADKG subsystem. It uses asynchronous verifiable secret sharing and proactive crypto systems distributed Key storage scheme by Cachin et al. (2002) and robust asynchronous DPSS to ensure that no single node in the system has access to the user's keys and the system can handle malicious nodes. We are also working on key repair, refresh, multi-factor-authentication (MFA) and multi-party computation (MPC) for even stronger security without compromising on ease of use for Web3 users.


At Arcana, we take security and privacy of applications seriously and believe in transparency. To eliminate security vulnerabilities in Arcana Smart Contracts and the Arcana's ADKG module, we put it under the rigorous vetting process and cybersecurity tests conducted by Certik. The audit is complete and you can refer to the reports for details.
