Abstract:

Oasis Labs is building a privacy-first cloud computing platform on blockchain. With privacy built-in in every layer of the platform and a new blockchain architecture, Oasis is the first smart contract platform to provide security, privacy, and high scalability. Oasis technology's unique properties and capabilities enable a broad spectrum of new applications from finance and healthcare to AI and gaming. In this talk, I will describe an overview of the technologies and sample applications.
