Enigma/Catalyst

Prediction Markets

Overview

Catalyst is a platform for cryptocurrency traders, data curators, developers, and investors. Traders develop powerful quantitative strategies by using community-curated data sets, and investors put capital towards the best traders and strategies. In essence, Catalyst allows anyone to build their own crypto hedge fund.

Features

Using secure multi-party computation (sMPC or MPC), Enigma data queries are computed in a distributed way, without a trusted third party. Enigma data is split between different nodes, and they compute functions together without leaking information to other nodes. Specifically, no single party ever has access to data in its entirety; instead, every party has a meaningless (i.e., seemingly random) piece of it.

Enigma is designed to connect to an existing blockchain and off-load private and intensive computations to an off-chain network. All Enigma transactions are facilitated by the blockchain, which enforces access-control based on digital signatures and programmable permissions.

To use Enigma, developers write high-level code, where public parts are executed on the blockchain and private parts are run off-chain, on Enigma’s platform. Enigma call these private contracts, since they are smart contracts that can handle private information.

Every request in the network for storage, data retrieval, or computation has a fixed price, similar to the concept of Gas in Ethereum. Unlike Ethereum where every computation is run by every node, in Enigma different nodes execute different parts of each computation and need to be compensated according to their contribution, which is measured in rounds.
