What Oasis Accomplished in Q2 2023
Oasis successfully launched the Sapphire runtime on Mainnet.
This event marked an historic stride forward for the Oasis community’s overarching goal of advancing better Web3 privacy through technological innovation. Sapphire enables unique use cases for dApps and empowers dApp developers with enhanced security and simplified privacy. In short, Sapphire brings smart privacy to every corner of Web3.

Oasis Wallet and Oasis Explorer got new upgrades.
Usability enhancements for both Oasis tools were highlighted during the town hall. Both products have been refined with upgrades that provide users with an even more seamless experience navigating the Oasis ecosystem and leveraging its features in their daily Web3 activities.
Oasis integrated Celer’s messaging bridge on Sapphire.
In a massive effort to expand the reach of Sapphire throughout Web3, Oasis successfully integrated Celer’s messaging bridge. This cross-chain communications tool allows developers on other blockchains to leverage the power of Sapphire without fully migrating to the Oasis Network. In short, thanks to Sapphire, privacy can be brought to any network – a developer’s home chain can be anywhere. Read more about this key integration here.
The power of the Oasis Privacy Layer was explained to the community.
Oasis presented a tutorial for developers of the Oasis Privacy Layer (OPL) and what it offers to dApps who prioritize better privacy. Using OPL can protect user data, ensure confidentiality, and bring smart privacy from Sapphire to any host network. Read more about OPL here.
Oasis engineers completed multiple integrations with even more to come.
In the past few months, Oasis engineers have completed multiple value-add integrations, including Chainstacks node support, Oasis Safe launch, and the Covalent API integration. Oasis also announced an exciting partnership with Router Protocol. Each of these accomplishments marks one step forward in improving the functionality, usability, and seamless accessibility of Oasis technology for everyone in Web3.
