SecondState launches Ethereum compatible ParaTime on the Oasis blockchain
SecondState, an open-source operating system for the cloud and decentralized web, today announced the launch of its Oasis Ethereum (OETH) ParaTime on the Oasis mainnet. Starting today, developers can use the SecondState Oasis Ethereum ParaTime to deploy decentralized applications on a privacy-first blockchain network and can execute Ethereum smart contracts on the Oasis Network.
By providing an alternative public Ethereum development platform, applications already running on the Ethereum Network can easily be ported to the Oasis Network. OETH is much more performant than Ethereum with throughput an order of magnitude higher and only 6s confirmation times.
Plus with gas fees that are less than 1% of those on Ethereum — using and running DApps on the Oasis Network is much more affordable. As the Oasis Network expands its support for confidential smart contracts, DApps running on OETH will be able to access the latest in confidential compute technology — helping keep data private and protected.
The Oasis Network uses a decentralized ParaTime architecture that allows parallel smart contract environments to be developed in isolation and operate independently while still connecting to the core Oasis Consensus Layer. OETH is an example of one of these ParaTimes that is custom-designed to support EVM smart contracts and provide support for the entire Solidity toolchain.
To showcase the ability of OETH to support Ethereum DApps, Second State has ported over an instance of Uniswap to their ParaTime — providing similar functionality for their users.
“We’re thrilled to see the launch of the Oasis Ethereum ParaTime by Second State. It’s a testament to the strong community supporting and growing the Oasis Network and the ecosystem around it. This ParaTime is an incredible example of what’s possible on the Oasis Network and a great step in making the privacy-first scalable Oasis Network more accessible to even more developers.”
– Jernej Kos, Director of the Oasis Foundation
Additionally, to celebrate the launch of SecondState’s Oasis Ethereum ParaTime, the Oasis Foundation will be hosting a hackathon on March 10th for developers to build DApps and earn up to 200,000 in ROSE, the native token of the Oasis Network.
