Oasis Network Bloom Hackathon! Enter Now to Earn $200K in Awards and Engage with The Brightest Minds in Crypto

Oasis Labs Hackathon

The Oasis Bloom Hackathon welcomes developers worldwide to work on the next generation of DApps for Web3 & beyond! The $200,000 Oasis Bloom Hackathon, with the support of Jump Crypto, Newman Capital, Neo Global Capital, and Hashed will take place on the Devpost platform until May 2, 2022.

There’s never been a better time to get creative. The Hackathon has two major focus areas: DeFi 2.0 and GameFi.

DeFi 2.0 are decentralized protocols that are solving the issues of DeFi 1.0. Typical issues include but are not limited to 1) how to unlock the value of staked funds in the liquidity pools; 2) how to mitigate risks of impermanent loss; 3) how to develop self-repaying loans; 4) how to develop smart contract insurance.

GameFi and play-to-earn (P2E) games create distinct models that balance gaming enjoyment with financial rewards. For example, games can be designed to incentivize you for achievements such as winning tournaments or specific battles between characters, trading digital property, or in-game marketplace trading.
