Because of this open approach, there are more than 2,000 developers, and over 4000 dapps have been launched on the Nebulas mainnet, which even exceeds Ethereum’s numbers. Among them, the “Cell Evolution” winner of the first month of the “Nebulas Incentive Program” recently received a co-investment worth 5 million RMB, at a 30 million RMB valuation. The Nebulas team welcomes more developers to join the ecosystem.
This partnership with Udacity is considered an important arrangement for the cultivation and onboarding of blockchain talent and is aligned with the philosophy and resources of Nebulas.
