Getting Started

Use Oasis

The introductory section contains general overview of the Oasis Network such as the distinction between the consensus layer and different ParaTimes. It also covers wallets and other tools for managing your assets across the Oasis chains and how to use unique Oasis features.

Create dApp

Contains learning material for the smart contract developers. Since the Oasis platform is best known for confidentiality, the most notable ParaTime is Oasis Sapphire, an EVM-compatible ParaTime with built-in contract state encryption. The Oasis team also prepared a set of libraries called the Oasis Privacy Layer to bridge existing dApps running on other chains to use the unique Sapphire's confidentiality.

The section also covers other ParaTimes such as the non-confidential Oasis Emerald and Wasm-compatible, confidential Oasis Cipher.

Get Involved

Contains information on official channels to get in touch with the Oasis Network developers and how to contribute to the network.

Run Node

If you want to run your own Oasis node, the following section will provide you with guides on the current Mainnet and Testnet network parameters and how to set up your node, let it be a validator node, perhaps running a ParaTime or just a simple client node for your server to submit transactions and perform queries on the network.

Build ParaTimes

Apart from Emerald, Cipher, Sapphire and the Key manager ParaTimes, developers can learn how to write, compile, sign and deploy their own ParaTimes on the Oasis Network.

📄️ Overview

Build your own ParaTime using Oasis Runtime SDK

Develop Core

Whether you want to contribute your code to the core components of the Oasis Network or just learn more about the Oasis core, this is the place for you.

📄️ Overview


Development of interoperable Oasis network components are made by consensus. Similar to the Ethereum's ERC/EIP mechanism, Oasis follows Architectural Decision Records (ADRs) which are first proposed, voted on and can then be implemented, if accepted.
