This week’s Q&A is here and it’s a very comprehensive one
Q: What is the smallest amount of Rose 1X10-9?
A: Nano rose (10^-9) on consensus, 10^-18 on emerald and sapphire. be aware that various transactions have separate minimums
Q: How is sapphire privacy related to zksnarks or starks?
A: Sapphire provides confidentiality with EVM semantics so that smart contracts on Sapphire run on-chain using a set of decentralized TEE enabled compute nodes. The advantage is near native performance for smart contracts in addition to confidentiality. Sensitive information can be stored on-chain with encryption supported by a decentralized key manager with the blockchain as the sole root of trust in addition to TEE hardware providers.
ZK techniques are for privacy and scalability where data is processed off-chain and constraints over the processing and the data itself evaluated off-chain with the outcomes of these evaluations available on-chain for verification with proofs of correctness. It is a different scaling technique that also enables selective disclosure of sensitive information for privacy.
Q: It’s about the ledger in parcel, what kind of actions is stored in ledger? The database action? Or any action associated with document.
A: Parcel does not talk to the blockchain and hence does not have any audit logs stored in the ledger.
Q: What are gigashares?
A: In the consensus staking system, entities have escrow “pools” to hold delegations and debonding delegations. pools track different users’ delegations by storing ROSE and a distribution of “shares.” the shares are initially created at 1 share per nano ROSE deposited (and then the ratio changes as the entity earns staking rewards or gets slashed), so the numbers of shares people have are huge. so some explorers display “gigashares” (10^9 shares) so that the number is in the same order of magnitude as the ROSE value of those shares
Q: What is the ‘removeChild’ error?
A: Translation browser extensions alter the web wallet structure in a way that our UI framework can’t handle. It will be fixed in the next update
Q: How can you mint your NFT? Is there any tool to be used on Parcel for this?
A: Parcel supports this feature and this was used for our data backed NFT efforts.
Q: Validators’ commission is deducted from the total amount of tokens, or from the rewards?
A: Comission is deducted from the rewards
Q: How can we connect Oasis Wallet to our frontend application just like metmask window.ethereum?
A: Not ‘just like metamask,’ but use u/oasisprotocol/client-ext-utils. see oasis-sdk/index.js at main · oasisprotocol/oasis-sdk · GitHub for examples. use ‘chrome-extension://ppdadbejkmjnefldpcdjhnkpbjkikoip’ for the origin of the oasis extension wallet
Q: Can one use the same account for both of the wallets?
A: For the web and extension weallets the answer is yes. Other wallets e.g. bitpie and ledger use different derivation schemes
Q: Any news in regards to your collaboration with Meta?
A: Oasis Labs collaboration with Meta is on track and they’ll post updates on this further down the line when they are able to disclose more.
Q: Is Dr. Song still involved in the project and fully dedicated? ( Apparently she is teaching some courses at Berkeley, which is a bit concerning to me )
A: Professor Song is very involved with the project. She has just recently represented Oasis Labs at ETHDenver 2023 (watch her speech here: https://twitter.com/h8sp33ch_/status/1633512921052610561)
Q: Why hasn’t Oasis been able to find any candidates for the open positions? There are about eleven open positions that were posted long ago. on your site. I am just wondering, why haven’t you been able to close those positions after a long period of time.
A: We are always on the lookout for great candidates, especially software engineers and product managers, so we’ll always have those positions open.
We’ve been a bit more picky on the Head of Marketing role but we would really try to close that one soon (if you have a good candidate, please don’t hestitate to contact us)
Q: Any plans to do any sorts of collaboration with AVAX?
A: At the moment, we don’t have any ongoing partnerships or collaborations with Avalanche but we are always open to collaborating with other networks. Oasis Privacy Layer (OPL)is designed to foster cross-chain collaboration by enabling Ethereum-compatible chains to leverage the power of confidentiality provided by Oasis Sapphire.
Q: Also, it is a bit concerning that one address is holding over 2 billions coins
A: The Oasis Networkis a Layer 1 decentralized blockchain network. As others have said, the address you’re seeing is likely one of the exchanges’ cold wallet addresses.
These were the most asked questions for this week, tune in next week for more information about Oasis.
