 Basics

  • Fka Enigma (ENG), although it is marketed as 'one of the teams working on SCRT'.
  • Founded in: 13-8-2017 (Enigma)
  • Mainnet release: Privacy-preserving smart contracts are now live on Secret Network (15-9-2020). Privacy tokens went live on 29-10-2020.
  • Based in:

History

SEC Ruling

"The US SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) settled charges against Enigma, a dApp privacy-focused ICO, for selling unregistered securities. Enigma agreed to return the $45 million raised in their ICO to investors, and register their offering with the SEC. Also, Enigma will pay the SEC a $500,000 fine. “The remedies in today’s order provide ICO investors with an opportunity to obtain compensation and provide investors with the information to which they are entitled as they make investment decisions,” declared John T. Dugan, Associate Director for Enforcement in the SEC’s Boston Regional Office."

"Enigma gets hunted down by SEC. Directly creates new token 🤫

Here's the link. ENG token got classified as a security, -25% today. So they moved to Cosmos and created SCRT token, leaving all bag holders in the dust. Shit never gets old..."

Someone else chimed in:

"There's no token swap. They just issued a new token (SCRT), gave it to a bunch of validators they liked, eg. binance and outlier ventures, and now that is the new token. The team has said explicitly they can't facilitate a token swap.

Hard to see this as anything but a really underhanded move on Can and Guy's part."

  • From its FAQ (29-9-2020):

"Enigma is also the name of an ERC20 token (known as ENG) that was issued in 2017. At this moment, there are no entities developing technologies or networks based on the utilization of ENG. There is an ongoing community-organized swap between ENG and SCRT (the native coin of Secret Network) that is expected to last until at least the end of 2020. The swap is 1:1 between ENG and SCRT."

  • From their blog (15-9-2020):

"The technology behind Secret Network’s “secret” smart contracts was developed by Enigma, a development company that builds and supports groundbreaking privacy-focused technologies and networks. Enigma has been researching and developing these types of technologies since CEO Guy Zyskind first published his privacy research papers at MIT in 2015, including "Decentralizing Privacy" and the first Enigma whitepaper. Years later, the importance of privacy to the blockchain space has been well established, and these original papers now have more than 1,500 combined citations."

Audits & Exploits

Bugs/Exploits

  • Within the Rekt telegram group there were mentions of a hard fork after an exploit (19-9-2021):

"Secret Network just had an "exploit". Someone dumped their coin just before the people running secret network shut down the chain, rolled it back and then moved onto a new chain. The secret swap site is still down but people with the know how are able to make swaps etc. The coin that was dumped before the rollback and switch from chain secret-2 to secret-3 is SEFI"

"On September 14, 2021 SecretSwap, a Secret Network DEX, was successfully exploited."

Governance

DAO

Treasury

  • Has an Ecosystem Pool (28-12-2020);

"We’re launching a dedicated Ecosystem Pool that will provide a meaningful source of funding for projects and initiatives being built on Secret Network for years to come. As mentioned above, it will begin with 20M SCRT allocated to fueling Secret Network's growth and securing its sustainability.

Generally speaking, the Ecosystem Pool separates itself from the community pool in several ways. First, it is meant to support any activities that contribute to network interests as a whole and is not limited to supporting development activities (though this would play a major part). Second, given its magnitude (more than 20 times that of the current on-chain community pool), it can help support bigger and longer lasting initiatives. Specifically, here are some of the things we expect the Ecosystem Pool to assist with:

  1. Supporting the upcoming reward mining campaigns (bridge and AMM liquidity mining)
  2. Provide non-dilutive seed-stage support to companies building major applications on Secret Network. Unlike simple occasional grants, this is meant to help kick start serious teams and companies that dedicate themselves to building on the network. The benefits here will likely not be only financial, but will also include mentoring from existing community members and developers
  3. Supporting major network improvements and products (e.g., secret oracles, light-client verification inside of secure enclaves, FHE and Differential Privacy integrations)
  4. Community initiatives and events

In terms of initial governance, and in the interest of continuing our fast pace of evolution as an ecosystem, the pool will be co-managed by the Secret Foundation and Enigma. We are actively looking for ways to involve more parties in the community in the process of operating the fund. Seeing the success of other network committees, one such option would be to establish a dedicated Ecosystem Pool Committee which would proactively seek worthwhile endeavors or review proposals."

Utility

  • From its FAQ (29-9-2020):

"SCRT (pronounced "Secret") is the native coin of the Secret Network. This means SCRT is used to pay fees and transfer value on the network. Secret nodes must stake SCRT in order to operate on the network, and in return they receive fees and network rewards in SCRT. When nodes go offline, they can be "slashed" and lose a portion of their SCRT stake. Holders of SCRT who are not operating nodes may "bond" their stake to a specific node in order to become a delegator. Delegators have an opportunity to earn a share of fees and network rewards by supporting a particular set of validators.

Another utility for SCRT is governance of the network. Secret nodes can create and vote on governance proposals using SCRT, allowing for decentralized control of the network."

  • From this blog (3-9-2020):

"dxSCRT – a staking derivative token on the Secret Network, which will be available on the public testnet in the coming weeks, as well as on mainnet with the launch of secret contracts.

What can dxSCRT mean for Secret Network? Right now, the unbonding time for Secret Network is 21 days. That means you need to choose between locking your SCRT for 21 days or missing out on block rewards entirely. Now there is going to be another option – deposit SCRT into a secret contract and receive dxSCRT, which is a secret token. In this case, dxSCRT represents your funds, staked by the secret contract, earning staking rewards over time. In addition, dxSCRT can also be exchanged at any time for SCRT."

How it works

  • From their blog (15-9-2020):

"This mainnet upgrade makes Secret Network the only blockchain running live smart contracts with encrypted inputs, outputs, and state. That is possible because every node operator validating the network activity uses a secure enclave – the same type of technology securing your fingerprint on your smartphone. You can think of Secret Network as combining the programmability of Ethereum with the privacy of Zcash. This capability for "programmable privacy" now allows developers to begin building their own permissionless and privacy-preserving “Secret Apps.”"

Fees

Upgrades

  • Supernova — Secret’s major mainnet upgrade launched is live (25-11-2021). It mainly enabled IBC.

Staking

Liquidity Mining

Scaling

Different Implementations

Interoperability

  • From this blog (3-9-2020):

"They’re building connections to Ethereum, Cosmos Hub, and other networks, intending to bring the capacity for “programmable privacy” to the entire blockchain universe."

"The Secret Ethereum Bridge is LIVE on Mainnet: Users can now get programmable privacy for their ETH and select ERC-20s. Plus: up to 2 million SCRT are expected to be available to support bridge mining and the launch of Secret DeFi."

It is not for all ERC20's. At this moment it is for WBTC and USDT, YFI, UNIKNC, COMPDAI and MKR, LINK and AAVE.

Their Projects

SecretSwap (SEFI)

The Secret AMM has been deployed to testnet, paving the way for a mainnet release during the week of February 15th,” Secret Network said in a post. “It is the only front-running resistant, cross-chain AMM, providing lower fees and more privacy protections for users than Ethereum-based AMMs. The Secret AMM allows users to exchange any Secret Token for any other Secret Token.”

  • Secret NFTs are live (9-4-2021) on the Secret Network. Similar to the SNIP-20 token standard, SNIP721s (Non Fungible Secret Tokens) are completely private. You can learn more about the use cases by checking out Secret Network's blog post.
  • SecretSwap got live (2-2021);

"SecretSwap allows users to trade any secret token for any other. Smart contracts on Secret Network have encrypted inputs, outputs, and state, so miners are not able to front-run any orders submitted to the AMM. Tokens that users buy on SecretSwap can be transferred with privacy on Secret Network, used in other Secret Apps, or sent over bridges back to native chains, including Ethereum."

Roadmap

  • Their Ecosystem roadmap can be found here (3-9-2021).
  • From this blog (3-9-2020):

"The proposal to introduce secret contracts to mainnet will be made on September 8th, 2020. If passed by the community, the secret contracts network upgrade would take place on September 15th, 2020. This proposed upgrade would make Secret Network the first layer-one blockchain to enable general purpose private computation across a distributed system of nodes equipped with secure enclaves. For the first time, developers will be able to build and deploy “secret” smart contracts that can utilize encrypted inputs, outputs, and state."

Usage

Projects that use or built on it

"A private smart contract on Secret Network for private biometric decentralized key management. The user’s root private key is issued in the private smart contract so that nobody can get access to it."
