Oasys, a game-optimized blockchain, is proud to co-host an online hackathon with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Singapore in collaboration with event partners Ubisoft, ChainGuardians, Adventure Gold DAO and AAG. With a total prize pool of 42,000 USD, the “GameWave Genesis” hackathon focuses on Web3 game development and innovation to empower game developers through education, sponsorship, and dedicated support to build more games on Oasys.
The GameWave Genesis hackathon is an important step in making Web3 gaming mainstream by adopting current trends like interoperability, seamless integration of NFTs and in-game components, and creating autonomous worlds. By creating an environment where developers find the support to build and deploy on Oasys and its Layer2 consisting of multiple Verses, GameWave Genesis creates a bridge between traditional gaming and the Web3 space.
GameWave Genesis will take place at Ethereum Singapore 2023 and TOKEN2049, Asia’s premier crypto conference, reaching a broader audience and providing opportunities for more gaming professionals who want to learn about Oasys and its applications in the gaming industry.
“Since its inception, Oasys has empowered developers worldwide to innovate. We know developers face unique challenges to make their games Web3-ready and interoperable in the blockchain age,” said Daiki Moriyama, Director of Oasys. “We want to call out to our fast-growing developer network to rally around making a difference in a dynamic and innovative space. We are grateful to partners, sponsors and participants who join us in building the future of gaming.”
Running from August 18th to September 13th, the online hackathon will provide a platform for innovative and promising projects, allowing developers to showcase their skills, collaborate with like-minded professionals, and learn about the transformative potential of Oasys and Web3 gaming principles in AMA sessions. They will also have the chance to meet Oasys and Verses team members and representatives of global tech and game giants to jointly develop ideas, products and Web3 games.
The 3 top products will receive 30,000 USD (in USDT) for the Oasys prize split between First (15,000 USD), Second (10,000 USD) and Third (5,000 USD) Place.
