🌹 Oasis Network Monthly Q&A May '23

Community is the heart of our project and we’re always looking to answer all questions answered by community members.

We receive a lot of questions on our channels and answers might get lost in discussions, ergo we decided to create a monthly thread here where we’ll cover the most asked questions from our community.

Q: Does Trezor support ROSE and can ROSE be stored on a Trezor hardwallet?

A: No. Possibly in some wrapped format, I think trezor can’t do consensus layer oasis signatures.

Q: How can I see which countries validators are from?

A: I think you’d have to ask, in the most general case. their metadata registry entry usually has something like keybase. I think the node registration also has an IP address, if you are allowed to judge by that.

Q: How does Oasis Labs differentiate themselves from other blockchain in AI use-cases?

A: We distinguish ourselves with our confidentiality to protect both user-owned training data and help privacy-preserving access to demographic information for assessing AI fairness, which are both central to Responsible AI.

Q: Is the trusted environment always used natively on every Smart contract?

A: Yes, the entire runtime logic is running inside TEEs, even parts that are not using encryption.

Q: Can different private information be stored in each NFT of a collection through Oasis?

A: Yes, that is indeed possible :slight_smile:

Q: How do I export all transactions ever?

A: You need historical nodes. all historical versions have supported grpc for getting transactions by block, so loop through those.

Q: What derivation path ledger nano uses while connecting to “Oasis wallet extension”?

A: https://github.com/oasisprotocol/oasis-sdk/blob/ca293cbb21480929ae6ab71808e2cdd9565ede2b/client-sdk/ts-web/signer-ledger/src/index.ts#L65 44’/474’/0’/0’/(number-1)’

Q: If someone sends malware to your pc. Does that pose a risk for the extension wallet?

A: Yes, in particular for the non-ledger accounts

Q: What is Oasis Safe?

A: Oasis Sapphire’s parallel runtime architecture ensures confidentiality while maintaining EVM compatibility, allowing Oasis Safe to take advantage of EVM-based applications while protecting user privacy through secure enclaves.

Oasis Safe, a fork of Gnosis Safe, provides a highly secure and customizable wallet for asset management on the Oasis Sapphire network. It inherits the trusted features of Gnosis Safe and offers benefits such as confidentiality, end-to-end encryption, confidential randomness, EVM compatibility, scalability, and low-cost fees. The integration with the Oasis Network’s Sapphire ParaTime enables seamless interaction with EVM-based decentralized applications, including DeFi, NFT, Metaverse, and crypto gaming.

Q: Can I use Oasis Safe now?

A: Yes! Gnosis Safe has been successfully deployed on Oasis Sapphire since April 2023. You can find it residing here : Oasis Safe – Welcome

Q: In the future will it be possible to to reduce the debonding time of 14 days, or is this a fixed time that will stay permanently?

A: We usually don’t treat the foundation as being in control; rather the community has been in agreement about these parameters. I believe we find it to be a good setting as well

Q: Will there be a password for the web wallet?

A: Yes, since the 24th of April, users can now add a password when they create a wallet , or add a password for their existing wallet.

Q: With all the troubles centralized exchanges have gotten, is it possible to buy ROSE directly through the wallet?

A: Yes it is possible and we’re currently working on it. We have a test version that users can experiment on it and we’re aiming to deploy on our web wallet as soon as we can.


Q: Sapphire is still pretty recent on mainnet, so I was wondering what the daily transactions are?

A: The total transactions on Sapphire so far has been 155,583 and the last daily transaction number as of 25th of May 2023 was 1179

Q: I’ve heard that Oasis has partnered with Covalent, what exactly does this mean?

A: Oasis has partnered with Covalent to enhance historical data access for developers building on the Oasis Sapphire runtime. Covalent’s Unified API tools enable Web3 developers to easily create confidential decentralized applications (dApps) on Sapphire while providing users control over their own data. This partnership expands on their previous collaboration for the Emerald runtime. Covalent’s industry-leading API, trusted by thousands of dApp developers, now empowers Oasis Sapphire developers to build high-performance applications with privacy features. The integration of Covalent’s API significantly improves the developer experience on the Oasis Network

Q: What does the partnership with Chainstack mean?

A: Oasis has partnered with Chainstack to add support for Oasis Sapphire nodes, aiming to improve user experiences in Web3. This partnership allows users to easily launch and run Oasis nodes through the Chainstack platform, offering fully-synced dedicated nodes with minimal wait time. With Chainstack’s infrastructure and management tools, users can efficiently manage Oasis nodes while reducing overhead costs. The collaboration opens up new possibilities for Oasis developers and simplifies node management for both novices and experienced users. The goal is to provide a seamless interface and maximize adoption of Oasis Sapphire in Web3.

Q: Oasis has been retweeting and tweeting about Enshrine Computing. What exactly is Enshrine?

A: Enshrine Computing is a secure serverless platform for Web3 applications. It allows developers to easily invoke secure off-chain functions from their smart contracts with minimal code changes. Enshrine Computing introduces the concept of autonomous computing, giving blockchain-controlled off-chain agents privacy and independence. This enables various applications like data marketplaces, self-sovereign AI, and ethical personalization.

They have built NFTrout, the world’s first autonomous breeding game, as a tech demo. Each trout in the game is unpredictable, self-authenticating, and unique due to secret genes known only to the game itself. This ensures a fair and transparent gaming experience.

Enshrine Computing utilizes trusted execution environments (TEEs) for high performance, ease-of-use, and strong security. TEEs provide privacy and proof of execution, allowing users to treat the cloud as their own secure computer.

By using Enshrine Computing, developers and users can have peace of mind knowing that data breaches are no longer a concern, and data is used as agreed upon. The platform enables applications such as personalized AI, robo-financial advisors, and decentralized identity management.

They are planning to launch a hosted secure serverless offering soon and encourage interested individuals to join their community and contribute to their mission of making secure computing accessible to all.
