OpShin Core - Developing Python Smart Contracts


Writing Smart Contracts on Cardano in Plutus/Haskell is difficult. Alternatives like OpShin (Python) are not well funded and currently have no dedicated developers pushing the project forward.


By hiring a part time developer, the OpShin project can make progress in the desired pace such that it will truly enable onboarding of new developers into the ecosystem.
