What is Gladius?
Gladius is the first and only blockchain solution for DDoS attack mitigation and content delivery. We allow anyone around the world the rent their unused bandwidth and hard drive space to become part of the Gladius Network. Websites are then able to tap into this decentralized economy and protect/speed up their websites.
DDoS attacks are when a malicious party sends dozens of Gigabytes of website requests every second to take down websites. In 2016 alone over 300,00 DDoS attacks occurred with over $150 billion in damages total.
Content delivery networks (CDNs) are networks that make websites load faster. By caching content close to users, website load speeds can be increased by over 100x.
