The Oasis ecosystem would not be where it is right now without the developers. Having a great idea is nice, but in order to bring this idea from your draft paper to the reality, you need the right person(s) with the right skills. That’s where you’ll need to find a developer.
Knowing that, we may ask ourselves “how can we attract those talented developers to work in Oasis?”, that’s a good question that even a developer, who never heard about Oasis, may ask himself.
So let’s see together how the Oasis Foundation is encouraging developers to choose Emerald Paratime and why the developers should do it.
The Oasis Ecosystem Fund
One of the incentive from Oasis is the “Oasis Ecosystem Fund”, this fund is already worth $235 million and is backed by a various investors such as Binance Labs, Newman’s Capital, Seven X Ventures and much more.
The main purpose of this fund is to help and support founders to built on Oasis. The key focus areas are:
- 💸 DeFi
- 🎨 NFT
- 🎮 Metaverse
- 🧾 Data Tokenisation
If you’re interested to apply or if you just want to know more about it, you can check the page on the Oasis official website.
Time to time, Oasis may organize a hackathon where all kind of talents, including developers, can submit their project and maybe win the opportunity to be funded and supported by Oasis in further development of this said project.
The last hackathon was the “Oasis Bloom Hackathon”, for which submissions were closed the 11th of May. But don’t worry, other hackathons may be organized in the future, so stay tuned!
This is clearly one of the strongest aspect of Oasis, the community. Developers will find in Oasis a very active and passionate community, always ready to help and all seeking for the growth of the Oasis ecosystem.
More than that, various Discord servers and/or Telegram channels are dedicated to all development related questions, you can have a look at our “Communities List” page to find them.
And of course, the last but not the least, the technical advantages of building on Oasis are not negligible, such as:
- ⚡ Speed: The specific architecture of Oasis enables complex transactions to be processed faster.
- 👤 Privacy: The privacy is the core argument of Oasis blockchain which supports confidential smart contracts.
- 💰 Low Gas Fees: The gas fees are 99% cheaper than on Ethereum, enough said.
- 🔀 EVM Compatibility: You can use all the available Solidity tools to develop and write smart contracts on Oasis.
As we can see, Oasis, even if it’s a quite young blokchain, has a lot to offer to the developers. And now may be the perfect time to jump in and start building in Oasis!
