In this article, we would like to introduce Secret Network - the first privacy-enabled Layer 1 blockchain. We'll be covering the following topics:
- What is Secret Network? What are Secret Network’s features?
- SCRT Tokenomic: key metrics, token allocation, and token use-cases.
- How/Where to earn and store SCRT coin?
- Roadmap & Updates.
- Founders/ Team members, Investors, and Strategic partners.
Let's explore the potential of Secret Network!
What is Secret Network?
Secret Network is the first privacy-enabled Layer 1 blockchain built with the Cosmos SDK, featuring privacy-preserving smart contracts (“secret contracts”). Secret Contracts on Secret Network achieve data privacy using on-chain encrypted data with Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs).
Secret Network supports encrypted inputs, encrypted outputs, and encrypted state for smart contracts so the data will not be exposed to the public.
How does Secret Network work?
Trusted execution environments (TEEs): A “black box” which enables secure, private computation over encrypted data.
Viewing keys: Since data is encrypted and private by default, users need the “viewing keys” to view their sensitive data. They allow users to maintain control over their data and decide what is shared and with who (auditors, wallets or explorers, etc.)
Why is Secret Network unique?
Secret Network brings new and unique privacy functionality to the crypto space. Privacy is essential to the security and adoption of Web3, from DeFi to NFTs and beyond.
In marketing speak, Secret Network packages the smart contract execution of Ethereum, the transactional privacy of Monero, and the interoperability offered by Cosmos SDK kits.
Secret Network has its own consensus and on-chain governance built atop the Cosmos/Tendermint framework. One major component of the Cosmos ecosystem is their Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol (IBC) — a system that allows different blockchains to connect and communicate with each other. With the IBC protocol, the door is opened for Secret Network to be connected with other chains in the future.
What is SCRT coin?
SCRT is the native coin of the Secret Network blockchain. Its specific use cases will be mentioned below.

Token use cases
Major functions of SCRT coin include:
- Paying Fees: To use applications on Secret, users need to prepare SCRT as the gas fees.
- Staking: By staking SCRT with the validators, users will help secure the network. Delegators (users) also will earn a share of fees and network rewards.
- Governance: All stakers can participate in the governance of Secret Network, helping set the future direction of the network and community.
How to store SCRT Tokens

Other supported wallets
You also can store, stake, or spend SCRT on Keplr, Citadel.One, Cosmostation or Ledger.
Note: Keplr is currently the only wallet that integrates with all applications built on the network.
How to buy SCRT Tokens using Coin98 Exchange

- DEXes: SecretSwap (Secret Network), Sienna (Secret Network), SushiSwap (Ethereum), Uniswap (Ethereum).
- CEXes: Binance, Bitmart, MEXC, Gate.io.
Roadmap & Updates
Is SCRT a good investment?
Below are some highlights for your consideration:
The team is building Secret Bridges that connect other ecosystems directly to Secret Network and provide access to cross-chain liquidity (such as Binance Smart Chain, Ethereum, and Monero - with more coming, like Terra), and reduces fees relative to Ethereum.
SecretSwap is the first AMM built on Secret Network. The network’s future directly depends on the future of its AMMs and vice versa. When Secret Network flourishes with more projects built, AMMs like SecretSwap will be the first place receiving asset flows.
Important updates will happen this October: Supernova - the first major mainnet upgrade since Secret Contracts launched in September 2020. The upgrade establishes Secret as the cross-chain privacy-first platform for Web3. According to the plan, alongside the Supernova upgrade, new Secret applications will launch on mainnet, new partners and collaborators will be introduced.
There have been only 11 projects running on the network. The project is for sure still in its infancy and the long way is still ahead for the team to actually attract more attention from users and communities.
