What is Sapphire?
Sapphire is the first and only confidential EVM-compatible runtime. Sapphire offers Solidity developers a familiar development environment, but with the added benefits of Oasis’ privacy-preserving technology.
Confidential smart contract state, end-to-end encryption, confidential randomness
Easy integration with EVM-based dApps, such as NFTs, Metaverse, crypto gaming and DeFi
Scalability — high throughput of transactions
Low-cost — 99%+ lower fees than Ethereum
WHAT TO BUILD
Some ideas for inspiration. We welcome great ideas and applications beyond the following scope:
Sapphire lets you bring sensitive data, like health, financial, and personally identifiable info on chain safely.
MEV-proof DEX, private or undercollateralized lending.
Many popular Web2 games we know and love have private state or game logic. Sapphire enables bringing more on chain.
Data-backed NFTs with associated private information to bring NFT utility to the next level.
Decentralized Society and Soulbound tokens:
With DID dApps can verify and whitelist users. Sapphire can be a game changer as dApps can now be built with these benefits without risking users’ privacy.
DID - Decentralized identity:
Maintaining sensitive information linked with external-facing data has always been challenging for dApps. But with Sapphire, you can build and create privacy-preserving data-backed tokens or Soulbound tokens, a critical pillar for decentralized society.
Implementation Quality: Does the project demonstrate high-quality development?
Potential Impact: How large an impact could the project have? How many users could the project potentially attract?
Innovation: How creative and unique is the project?
User Experience: Does the project's design make the user experience easy?
Originality: The project must be substantially different from any other app submitted by the same submitter/team/organization and must be the original work of the submitter, be solely owned by the submitter, and not violate the IP rights of any other person or entity.
Confidentiality: How well does the dApp utilize confidentiality?
