The press is even taking more notice this quarter. Take a look at some of the coverage Oasis received:

Technical Lead Tadej Janež introduced the new official Oasis Wallets

Easily send, receive, delegate, or undelegate your $ROSE

Two Versions:

  1. Web Wallet (http://wallet.oasisprotocol.org)

Oasis Labs Head of Enterprise Solutions, Vishwa Raman introduced the use cases for Parcel

The innovations and uses of Parcel:

  • PROTECT & COMPLY
  • GOVERN DATA
  • ANALYZE PRIVATE DATA
  • AUDIT EVERY TRANSACTION

Parcel will enable data sovereignty, allowing data users and consumers to come together to create secure, structured, monetizable data ecosystems.

With the tokenization engine Data-backed NFTs and enabled on the Oasis Network. A “data capsule” can be created by defining policies around how a piece of data can be used, which can then be tokenized.

With lots of companies already benefiting from Parcel’s powerful functionality:

Mahmoud Deghaim, CEO of Castalise gave a deep dive into how they are using Parcel and how the platform works

Applications built on Parcel have the potential to evolve, transform, and improve the Data Industry.

is a prime example of how applications built within the Oasis Network can fill the gap in the Data Industry.

Oasis business development manager, Ekin Tuna outlined how we grow the Oasis ecosystem

  • Partnering with accelerators & hackathons to bring the best projects to the network
  • Championing integration with engineering & community support
  • Engaging with the community via airdrops & marketing
  • Scaling Oasis and community built projects

Finally, we announced the first Oasis Blockchain accelerator with a total $3.5million in grants and potential investments available for applicants

The official launch for the $3.5M Blockchain Accelerator with Oasis & MetaMind Labs is February 2nd, 2022 (2/2/22)
