The first month of the Nebulas Incentive Program concluded this week, at midnight, June 2nd, Beijing time.

Early data shows 2765 dapps were submitted during this time period, and of these more than 600 dapps won NAS rewards (21.7% acceptance rate). At present, there are more than 2,100 dapps running on the Nebulas mainnet, far surpassing the number of Ethereum-based dapps.

In the first month of NIP, the total number of reward winners, counting both developers and referrers, was more than 900. Altogether, these winners received approximately $1.4 million USD in NAS rewards. Congratulations to everyone who won NAS rewards!

The Nebulas technical team has finalized their review of the best dapps submitted in the first month of NIP. During this process, the top-three dapps in each of the first four weeks of NIP were analyzed with the Nebulas ranking algorithm, which considers the quality of a dapp, its user activity of a month, and other factors. Our winners are as follows:

Application Description:
Cell evolution is the first decentralized strategy and sandbox game application built on the blockchain, and the Weekly Champion for the second week of NIP. In this game, players act as a biological cell and survive by balancing adaptive and reproductive abilities. All players also play as a cell group in a group. If the direction of the cell group is unbalanced, the whole evolution will fail.

Big congratulations to the first Monthly Champion of the Nebulas Incentive Program!

Developers are the most important life source in not only the Nebulas ecosystem but blockchain as a whole. By building dapps, developers produce the utility within blockchain that eventually leads to mainstream adoption. Understanding this is what motivated us to launch the Nebulas Incentive Program.

Winning the Monthly Developer Champion award brings more benefits than the 20,000 in NAS rewards. Monthly Champions also have an opportunity to join Nebulabs, and receive full support of the Nebulas incubator, including funds, technology development support, community resources, and more.

In addition to the Monthly Developer Champion, we are also announcing the winners of the first month’s Referral Awards. As of June 4, 2018, the Nebulas team ranked the monthly referrers in May. This ranking considers the number of effective developers invited by referrers, and gives rewards to the top 6 referrers who received the monthly promoter awards. In each month of the Nebulas Incentive Program, there is one first prize, two second prizes, and three third prizes. The results of the Monthly Referral Awards are as follows:

Congratulations to the referrers who won these prizes! Nebula greatly values both developers and the referers. We recognize the contribution that everyone can have in promoting the growth of the Nebulas ecosystem. In our view, Nebulas is an open and collaborative platform promoting positive interaction between developers, referrers, and consumers. We base the Referral Rewards on this principle. As long as referrer invites five developers to Nebulas, and these developers create successful apps, that referrer will have a chance to win the 10,000 NAS Referral Champion prize.

The purpose of the Monthly Referral Awards is to support the efforts of influential referrers and community leaders for their contributions to the Nebulas ecosystem. We plan to emphasize more formal ways for community members to get involved, along with associated rewards, in the near future. Just like the early Bitcoin evangelists, should strive to communicate and connect with each other, participate in growing and organizing communities, and collaborate in a decentralized manner. Community is key. Together can we create the Nebulas platform we both want and deserve.

As well as associated rewards, in the near future. These would include roles like continuous support for the Nebulas community. More and more outstanding developers will be launched during the incentive plan to deepen the relationship between the promoters and the developer community. Communicate and connect with each other, and to a certain extent undertake the organization and collaborative work of developers, and verify and polish more effective and reasonable decentralized collaboration methods, just like the role of early evangelists in Bitcoin, to become a co-construction Nebulas ecologically. Community key link.


The May flowers have bloomed, and we now step into the sunshine of June. For those who didn’t win NAS rewards in the first month of Nebulas Incentive Program, don’t be discouraged! There are still four more weeks of the Season One to go. Every week our ranking system is reset and recalculated. This means dapps submitted in previous weeks that receive a prize are still eligible to win in the weeks that follow.

June is said to be a lucky month in Chinese culture, but in the spirit of true decentralized and borderless, we wish to extend this luck to everyone around the world. This past month, the massive show of support from developers and referrers alike, and the quality of the dapps submitted to Nebulas, are further confirmation of the uniting and transformative power of blockchain. Our drive to create a collaborative blockchain ecosystem for the long-term has never been stronger.
