We are announcing the launch of our latest Gitcoin Hackathon on Gitcoin for three weeks between 8 and 29 June 2022.

This is an opportunity for all budding developers who are passionate about building the future of Web3 to bring their ideas to life.

The Challenge

This Hackathon challenges developers to create a mini-game with on-chain features, such as NFTs and/or a native token, which is fun and addictive to play. Think Flappy Bird, Temple Runner, Tower Bloxx, or Candy Crush.

A playable version of the game should be launched, or ready to launch, on Oasis Emerald mainnet, within 3 months of the Hackathon.

Additionally, the mini-game must be part of a roadmap for a full version game that immerses the player long-term and can compete with other current blockchain games.

The Prize

One lucky winner will receive $20,000 to help develop and launch the mini-game and full version.

Why Oasis?

Oasis Network is scalable, developer-friendly, and has experienced record growth and surpassed $100 million in TVL in less than 12 hours of the launch of YuzuSwap, the first community-built DEX. So, now is the perfect time to join the Oasis Community!

Emerald, the EVM compatible ParaTime, allows easy integration with EVM-based DApps, such as DeFi, NFTs, Metaverse, and crypto gaming. Developers can easily start building on Emerald by using existing EVM tooling and deploying their Solidity smart contracts through our public Web3 gateway.

Through its separation of consensus and computation into two parallel layers, Oasis is far more scalable than other blockchains and can manage many complex transactions at scale. Oasis is ideal for crypto gaming due to instant finality, 99% lower gas fees versus Ethereum, high throughput, privacy protection, and defense against MEV.
