Privacy-focused blockchain network Oasis Foundation has unveiled a $160m ecosystem fund dedicated to supporting the development of projects being built on the Oasis Ecosystem.
The $160m in funds will be used to “power the next wave of Oasis applications” in established spaces such as decentralised finance (DeFi), NFTs, the ‘Metaverse’ and an array of data-focused spaces like data tokenisation, governance and DAOs.
The investment will be allocated among the ecosystem in a bid to support both new start-ups and existing projects currently building on Oasis.
