How Orally Works

A booklet with all products architecture:

In a world where decentralized applications (dApps) are revolutionizing digital interactions, Orally stands as a beacon, illuminating the path with its innovative suite of solutions designed to bridge the gap between blockchains and the real world. But how does Orally achieve this remarkable feat? Let's delve into the mechanics of Orally's operations.

Architectural Overview

At its core, Orally is a sophisticated network of interconnected modules, each designed to serve specific needs within the blockchain ecosystem while working in harmony to provide a seamless, integrated experience. These modules — Sybil, Pythia, Apollo, Hephaestus, and Hermes — offer diverse functionalities, from fetching real-world data to facilitating cross-chain communication.

Orally's infrastructure is deeply entrenched in decentralization, leveraging the Internet Computer Protocol's (ICP) consensus mechanism instead of relying on a proprietary network of validators. This approach ensures absolute decentralization, superior security, and optimized transactional efficiency.

Data Fetching and Verification: Sybil and Apollo

Sybil stands at the forefront of data aggregation and delivery. Named after the legendary oracle known for her prescience and multitude of voices, Sybil collects data from various external sources, ensuring the information's accuracy and timeliness through a decentralized consensus reached by various nodes on the ICP chain.

Apollo, the request-based data delivery system, works in tandem with Sybil. When a contract on an EVM-compatible chain requires specific data, it sends a request to Apollo. Post request, Apollo fetches the necessary data through Sybil or generates randomness using unpredictable BLS signatures, preparing the data for transit.

Both Sybil and Apollo use ECDSA signatures for data authentication, ensuring that the data's integrity and origin are verifiable, bolstering the overall trust in the data provided.

Cross-Chain Communication: Hermes

Hermes epitomizes Orally's commitment to creating a unified blockchain ecosystem. It empowers dApps with the ability to transmit messages and data across different blockchains. Whether it's a contract on Ethereum wishing to initiate a transaction on another chain or a dApp requiring information from a separate blockchain, Hermes facilitates this communication seamlessly, living up to the reputation of its mythological namesake, the messenger of the gods.

User Authentication: DAuth

DAuth simplifies the authentication process for dApp users. It allows users to log in using familiar social media credentials, enhancing user experience without compromising security. Once a user logs in through a social platform, DAuth verifies the access token's validity, signs a proof of the authenticated data, and sends this proof back to the user's frontend. This proof can then be attached to any transaction, enabling the dApp to confirm the user's identity through DAuth's EVM verifier contract.

Custom Data Solutions: Hephaestus

Hephaestus is where customization takes the center stage. It allows dApps to tailor data feeds or craft unique data solutions, befitting specific needs. From dynamic NFTs that change based on real-world data to governance structures that adapt based on specific triggers, Hephaestus provides the tools necessary for innovation.

Subscription-Based Automation: Pythia

Pythia is the embodiment of automation and precision. It allows the scheduling of transactions or the triggering of smart contract functions based on time or data parameters. With Pythia, dApps can automate processes, optimize resource allocation, and respond promptly to market conditions or pre-defined triggers.

Security Measures

Security in Orally is not an afterthought; it's an integral component of its design. The platform utilizes advanced security measures such as ECDSA signatures for data authentication and a continuous heartbeat system from the ICP for real-time performance monitoring and anomaly detection.

In Summary

Orally works by integrating various specialized modules into a cohesive unit, offering a spectrum of services essential for the thriving dApp ecosystem. It maintains a steadfast commitment to decentralization, security, and user-centric design. By providing a bridge between the blockchain and the real world, Orally is not just a platform; it's the architect of a future where the potential of dApps can be fully realized.
