Writing a Private Smart Contract

To start using the privacy features of the COTI platform effectively, keep the following in mind when writing contracts:

  1. Understand Privacy Features: Familiarize yourself with the privacy features offered by our blockchain platform. Explore how secret data types operate to ensure confidentiality.

  2. Define Contract Requirements: Clearly outline the requirements and functionality of your smart contract. Identify the specific use case and consider how privacy features can enhance security and confidentiality.

  3. Implement Secret Data Types: Utilize the provided secret data types defined in the library (MpcCore.sol) to protect sensitive information within your smart contract.

  4. Develop Scripts or dApp Frontend: Begin by developing scripts or a decentralized application (DApp) frontend using languages like Python, JavaScript, or relevant frameworks using the provided privacy specific sdk. These scripts or frontend interfaces will facilitate the execution of your smart contract's functionality while ensuring privacy and confidentiality are maintained.

  5. Test and Validate: Thoroughly test and validate your smart contract to ensure that privacy features are functioning correctly. Test various scenarios to verify the security and confidentiality of sensitive data handling.

  6. Deploy and Monitor: Deploy your smart contract onto the blockchain platform and monitor its performance in a real-world environment. Continuously monitor for security vulnerabilities or privacy leaks and address them promptly to maintain confidentiality.

By following these instructions, contract writers can effectively leverage the privacy features of our blockchain platform to develop secure and confidential smart contracts tailored to their specific use cases.
