We’re excited to announce a partnership and integration of Secret’s Confidential Computing Layer with Optimism’s OP Mainnet, a layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum powered by the OP Stack! Through this partnership, Secret Network will provide OP Mainnet with decentralized confidential computing (DeCC) tooling, documentation, and support. This will unlock powerful new capabilities for applications in the OP Mainnet ecosystem!

Some examples of what this can enable are private voting for DAOs, encrypted storage for various applications, secure random number generation for games, confidential data linked to NFTs, sealed-bid auctions for NFTs and other assets, and encrypted order books for DeFi applications!

By integrating Secret’s Confidential Computing Layer with Optimism’s OP Mainnet, we’re unlocking new possibilities for one of Web3’s largest ecosystems!

What is Optimism/OP Mainnet?

Optimism is a collective of companies, communities, and citizens working together to reward public goods and build a sustainable future for Ethereum. Optimism’s core technology, the OP Stack, consists of many different software components managed and maintained by the Optimism Collective. 10+ blockchains are currently built on the OP Stack, including Base, Lisk, Frax, and OP Mainnet.

OP Mainnet was the first blockchain built on the OP Stack. It’s a layer 2 network that extends Ethereum’s architecture to help scale it. OP Mainnet’s goal is to increase transaction throughput and reduce costs while maintaining Ethereum’s security.

The long term vision of Optimism is something that they call the Superchain – a horizontally scalable network of chains that share security, a communication layer, and an open source development stack. Eventually, the intention is for all chains built on the OP Stack to become part of this Superchain. This permissionless system for deploying new chains to a shared network would open the door to massive scale, novel applications, and a new revenue model that rewards application developers for the fees their chains generate, and rewards protocol developers for the public goods they create.

Start Utilizing Confidential Computing on OP Mainnet

You can start building on OP Mainnet by checking out their developer documentation.

Next, check out Secret Network’s Confidential Computing Layer landing page to get an overview of how it works, and example use-cases for inspiration. From there you’ll find multiple links to our documentation, including the EVM developer toolkit. This page includes tutorials for applications you can build, and information on connecting your Optimism application to Secret!

Secret’s Partnership with Optimism

We’re excited to work with Optimism and provide dedicated support to their developer ecosystem! In addition to today’s announcement, we’re also discussing future collaborations such as joint hackathon bounties and grants, developer workshops, and in-person and virtual events.

We’re also looking into ways for Secret Network to support the Superchain – essentially automating the process of integrating our Confidential Computing Layer with every blockchain built on the OP Stack. This would be a powerful addition to the OP Stack’s tooling, and aligns with Secret’s mission to bring decentralized confidential computing (DeCC) to all of Web3. Stay tuned!
