Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs) serve as the backbone of numerous modern decentralized systems like the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) and Ethereum. As these systems evolve and expand, there is a growing need to enhance and optimize their underlying network support. In response to these challenges, we embark on the development of a new class of DHTs, marked by efficiency, security, and suitability for real-world deployments. We achieve this by making changes in the routing procedures, incorporating latency-aware routing, and harnessing recent hardware advancements.
