The privacy-oriented Secret Network is launching private on-chain governance for SecretSwap, its automated market maker.
SecretSwap works similarly to Uniswap or SushiSwap but also has privacy features, including resistance to “front-running,” which is a bot attack (or trading) strategy on the Ethereum network in which a bot gets a transaction first in line in the execution queue, right before a known future transaction occurs. The launch of the governance tool means that holders of SecretSwap’s SEFI token can vote in a system that is private by default.
In a blog post announcing the launch, the community said this would help “secure the integrity and sovereignty of SecretSwap’s decentralized governance.”
“Data privacy is critical to the security and usability of DeFi,” Tor Bair, the Secret Foundation’s executive director and chairman, said. “SecretSwap solves universal DeFi issues like front-running while giving users access to multi-chain assets and privacy by default.”
The move continues a build-out of the Secret Network’s line of applications and system, and provides an alternative to more public DeFi platforms.
