Chainstack introduces Oasis Sapphire support

The Chainstack team is excited to announce its support of Oasis Sapphire, the confidentiality-enabled EVM network runtime on the Oasis Network, adding the first of its kind to our list of supported chains. Thanks to this, you now have the possibility to deploy an Oasis node under any of our subscription plans.

This integration with our robust, enterprise-grade infrastructure makes it more accessible than ever to build and scale cutting-edge DApps, freeing you from the burden of managing nodes, so you can focus fully on creating value with your Web3 project.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled about Chainstack incorporating Oasis into their tech stack. This partnership represents a major milestone for both projects. By launching seamlessly on the Oasis Sapphire mainnet, Oasis developers are now poised to unlock a world of new possibilities and opportunities.

The result of this collaboration will be a more convenient and efficient development process for all involved, leading to even greater innovation throughout the entire community. We can’t wait to see what exciting new projects will emerge as a result of this game-changing partnership.”

William Wendt Oasis Ecosystem Growth Manager

What is Oasis?

The Oasis Network is an L1 proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain supporting parallel runtimes designed for scalability, interoperability, and privacy. Their latest implementation, Oasis Sapphire, is the first ever EVM network to support confidential smart contracts, enabling encrypted smart contract states. Its aim is to provide a privacy layer to Web3 that allows developers to foster on-chain confidentiality in their DApps, making them ideal for real-world use cases.

With a secure, high throughput architecture, and unique privacy features at its core, the Oasis Network sets a new standard in Web3, effectively propelling the entire Web3 industry forward and providing the robust, flexible, and functional privacy that is needed direly.

And to top it all off, the introduction of Tokenized Data—a new digital asset type intends to give users even more control over their data, with the additional benefit of earning staking rewards for locking liquidity in DApps. In turn, this serves to further highlight of the main objective here, being to create the first responsible data economy that puts its users in complete charge of their data.

Building on Oasis Sapphire

Oasis Sapphire is a state-of-the-art solution that enables developers and users to personalize the confidentiality parameters and extensions of the applications built atop the network with utmost attention to the needs of both the software and its users. These confidentiality-enabling features allow for the development of ever more complex and sophisticated smart contracts, boasting exceptional user experiences that rival those of their well-established Web2 counterparts.

That being said, Oasis Sapphire aims to be more than just an environment for native confidentiality-enabled smart contracts. Quite the contrary—it aims to become the privacy layer for Web3, allowing DApps on any EVM network to offload their confidential compute needs to the Sapphire network. To do this, it leverages messaging bridges and gas relayers to connect the network with any DApp’s home chain.

In addition to its EVM compatibility and end-to-end confidentiality support, the Oasis Sapphire Network too brings the powerful additional features that make it a premium network for developers, including:

  • Native confidential randomness support (without the need for off-chain oracles)
  • High scalability, supporting hundreds of transactions per second
  • Low cost—99% lower transaction fees than those of Ethereum
  • Cross-chain bridges that enable complete multichain interoperability

Sapphire enacts Oasis’ avant-garde privacy technology, which enforces the use of a secure computing technology called a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) by every network node. TEEs are analogous to a black box for smart contract execution.

By implementing secure and reliable key management, encrypted data streams into the black box (known as the Secure Enclave) along with the smart contract, where the data is decrypted, and processed by the smart contract before it is re-encrypted and parsed further down the line from the Secure Enclave.

This process ensures the data remains confidential and avoids it being disclosed to any node operator or application developer.

Give me trust

In part 1 of the Trust Trilogy, I took a sweeping view of the evolution of trust and what it means today for all of us. I tried to establish the unique and powerful nature of blockchain as a ‘controllable trust interface’ and touched lightly upon what it means for businesses.
