区块链云计算平台Oasis Labs获4500万美元融资

据外媒报道,Oasis Labs是一个基于区块链的云计算平台。近日,该公司宣布已经在私募代币预售中完成了4500万美元的融资,投资方包括硅谷知名风投Andreessen Horowitza刚成立的加密基金16zcrypto、Accel、币安、DCVC(Data Collective)、Electric Capital、Foundation Capital、高榕资本、Metastable、Pantera、Polychain、以及知名加密货币交易所Coinbase联合创始人Fred Ehrsam。

据了解,作为一个基于区块链的云计算平台,Oasis Labs将竞争对手定位在了亚马逊AWS云服务平台上,他们希望通过“软硬件集成技术”解决区块链在性能、安全、隐私上的痛点,使得人工智能、机器学习等计算密集型应用也能架构在区块链底层之上。

Dawn Song是该公司首席执行官,他透露Oasis Labs现在将专注于核心功能开发,并且将利用这笔最新融资加速测试网开发,预计很快就会发布。事实上,Oasis Labs的目标是构建可扩展且安全的分布式互联网,在提升网络性能和隐私保护的同时,让用户掌握其数据的所有权。在处理能力方面,平台将高于现有系统几个数量级,同时保证对于复杂应用同样有效。

Oasis Labs团队成员来自隐私、安全、分布式系统、人工智能和机器学习等行业领域。创始人Dawn Song目前担任加州大学伯克利分校计算机科学系教授,也是计算机安全领域专家和麦克阿瑟天才奖获得者。据Dawn Song表示:

“在我们的试验中,看到性能数量级远大于以太坊,Oasis Labs架构能够支持更多计算密集型任务,比如机器学习和人工智能,这是当今区块链技术无法实现的。此外,Oasis Labs网络的每一层都内置了安全和隐私功能,确保在没有节点看到敏感数据的情况下验证交易,智能合约也决不会泄露私人信息。”

Oasis Labs has raised $45 million to build a “privacy-first” cloud computing platform with blockchain technology.

Berkeley, California-based Oasis Labs is designing a platform to overcome the performance, security, and privacy limitations that have hampered blockchain adoption to date. The aim is to make blockchain, a distributed secure ledger that powers cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, more useful to a broader set of companies.

“Blockchains are poised to revolutionize much of the way we live, but many developers and organizations have understandable concerns about performance and privacy limitations that are currently hindering their ability to embrace the technology,” said Oasis Labs CEO Dawn Song, in a statement. “The Oasis platform aims to give users control over their data, and at the same time deliver superior performance and privacy capabilities. Our goal is to build the scalable and secure decentralized internet that puts users first.”

The first funding round included a16z crypto, Accel, Binance DCVC (Data Collective), Electric Capital, Foundation Capital, Metastable, Pantera, Polychain, and others.

“Today’s internet is experiencing significant growing pains when it comes to providing effective security and privacy protections, which is only compounded by the rise of data-intensive services like AI,” said Accel partner Jake Flomenberg, in a statement. “At the same time, however, the opportunity has never been greater to responsibly leverage data in the web’s next phase of products and innovation. Oasis Labs is forging a new path by giving people control over their data while delivering a high-performance blockchain platform that will reshape the future of the cloud.”

To power those applications, the Oasis platform embodies two core ideas.

The first is bringing privacy and security protections previously not possible on a blockchain. The second is delivering processing capabilities with much greater performance than existing systems, even for complex applications.

This combination could enable sophisticated, computationally intensive, and privacy-sensitive services, such as machine learning on the blockchain, the company said.

“It’s exciting to see talented people like Dawn and her team working on ways to transition the internet away from data silos and toward a world with more responsible ways to share and own your data,” said Fred Ehrsam, cofounder of Coinbase and Oasis Labs investor, in a statement.

Starting today, Oasis Labs is asking developers to apply for access to its private testnet.

“Our team has been hard at work building the platform for blockchain’s most meaningful applications,” said Oasis Labs cofounder and CTO Raymond Cheng. “The next step is getting our product in the hands of developers who align with our mission and can help inform the evolution of the platform as they build applications upon it. We can’t wait to show them what we’ve been up to.”

Oasis Labs’ leaders have played pivotal roles in a number of open source projects in the areas of secure and privacy-preserving computing, including the open source differential privacy project with Uber and the open source keystone project (in collaboration with research groups at MIT and UC Berkeley) to develop open source secure hardware.

Oasis Labs was founded in 2018 and has 20 employees.
