Phat Contract Closed Beta Opens Applications
The Phala team is excited to announce that the Phat Contract closed beta application process will be launching today! Our engineers have been hard at work building out the foundational features for Phat Contract, and the time has come for Web3 developers to dive in and explore how Phala’s trustless off-chain computation platform can work for them.
The closed beta will be a private test event with limited places. We welcome all Rust & !ink developers to apply to join. Participants will receive a POAP NFT signifying their contribution to Phat Contract testing, and the most productive developers will win prizes in $PHA. If you miss out this time, no worries! This is just the first of many Phat Contract developer events that Phala will be hosting.
What is Phat Contract?
Phat Contract is Phala Network’s software development kit that enables developers to permissionlessly utilize Phala’s decentralized off-chain computational cloud. Phat Contract uses the Rust language and can interface with smart contracts on any chain to execute a wide variety of compute tasks.
For the first time, you can easily implement important Web3 services on a decentralized infrastructure, like
- Building a decentralized Oracle;
- Allowing customers to sign into your DApps with Web2 accounts through OAuth;
- Controlling your smart contracts even if they are on different chains;
- Reading and storing data to any storage services while remaining private.
What to expect from the Closed Beta:
The Closed Beta campaign will run in two phases. In phase one we are inviting Phala’s partners to test Phat Contract with the goal of building out high-value use cases within the Phat Contract SDK.
In phase two we are opening up testing to all developers who are interested in building with the latest version of Phat Contract and are eager to provide feedback.
The application process for both phases starts today, November 28th, and we encourage everybody to apply!
On December 12th phase one will begin and the test environment will become available to our partners. Phase two will initiate several days later, opening up testing to all successful applicants.
How to join?
If you are interested in joining the closed beta, please fill out this application form, and we will get in touch with you shortly.

Phala Network tackles the issue of trust in the computation cloud.
By organizing a decentralized network of computation nodes around the world, it offers high-performance services without relying on any cloud vendor. Phala workers run the programs in Secure Enclaves, a privacy technology already embedded into modern processors, enabling versatile and confidential execution. Together, this creates the infrastructure for a powerful, secure, and scalable trustless computing cloud.
