The biggest development for ROSE which helped the price surge was the announcement of the $160 million Oasis ecosystem fund designed to help the founders as well as the projects that were built on the Oasis network and ecosystem. The development fund got backed by a host of partners and investors like Draper Dragon, Pantera Capital, Hashed FBG and it even has a goal of expanding the ecosystem across multiple sectors like NFTs, Metaverse, Defi, and DAOs. The major factor that attracts more projects to Oasis is the privacy features that are designed to support smart contracts and the ability to process transactions 99% less than the cost of ETH that adds another incentive to attract some promising applications.
Privacy is very important in Defi settings and the projects which promote it could help it facilitate the migration of stakeholders from centralized finance to decentralized alternatives. The second reason why ROSE gained traction, was the release of the Oasis Al Rose NFTs as the first project on the network. To engage with the community and display the NFT capabilities of the network, the AI-generated roses were minted and then airdropped. The third factor that helped boost the price of ROSE is an expanding ecosystem of decentralized applications with a growing community of active users. It was also revealed that YuzuSwap is the first decentralized exchange that was built on Oasis and It raised $2 million in funding for development to become a cornerstone of the Oasis Defi ecosystem.
