Oasys Blockchain has recently teamed up with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to unveil an online Web3 gaming hackathon in Singapore.
A recent press release shared with Coinspeaker revealed that this collaborative endeavor is being partnered with prominent gaming names, including Ubisoft, ChainGuardians, Adventure Gold DAO, and AAG.
The Hallmark of the Hackathon
The hackathon, aptly titled “GameWave Genesis”, brings together a community of forward-thinking developers, enthusiasts, and industry experts to explore the potential of Web3 game development.
With a generous total prize pool of $42,000, participants compete for recognition and a chance to secure vital resources to fuel their innovative projects. The event emphasizes that Web3 game development is not just a technological marvel, but also a promising avenue for long-term growth and profitability.
Scheduled to run from August 18th to September 13th, the hackathon is set to provide a vibrant platform for developers to showcase their skills, collaborate with fellow professionals, and explore the transformative potential of Oasys and Web3 gaming principles.
At the heart of GameWave Genesis is Oasys, a game-optimized blockchain platform. This platform provides an environment where developers can seamlessly integrate blockchain features, thereby enhancing security, ownership, and gameplay mechanics. AWS, a global leader in cloud computing also brings a wealth of resources and expertise to the table.
By hosting the hackathon on Oasys and its Layer2 Verses, GameWave Genesis offers developers the tools and support to craft innovative experiences that embody the ideals of Web3 gaming.
This hackathon doesn’t merely represent innovation, but also crystallizes the synergy between current trends in the industry, fostering interoperability, NFT integration, and the creation of immersive autonomous worlds.
The hackathon is set to transcend conventional boundaries as it finds its home within two of Asia’s most prestigious events, Ethereum Singapore 2023 and TOKEN2049. This strategic convergence is an illustration of its dedication to reaching a broader audience and fostering a transformative dialogue in the gaming industry.
One of the hallmarks of the hackathon lies in its unique networking opportunities. Participants will have the golden chance to interact with Oasys and Verses team members, as well as representatives from global tech and gaming powerhouses.
