How to start

Find a project

Let's go!

Finding the right project to contribute to is your first step. Let's make it simple and guide you on how to navigate OnlyDust to discover a project that aligns with your interests and skills.

Exploring Projects
Our platform offers a variety of projects, and with our filtering options, you can easily find one that suits you best. You can sort projects by:

  • Popularity (how trending the project is)
  • Community activity (projects with an active community)
  • Newcomer friendliness (projects that regularly onboard newcomers)
  • Reward history (projects that have rewarded contributors significantly)
  • Contribution rewards (projects offering rewards for contributions)
  • Pace (fast-paced projects)
  • Availability of open issues (projects with issues ready to tackle)

We suggest looking at three to four projects initially to get a feel for what excites you.

Diving Deeper
Once a project catches your eye, visit its page to learn more. Here, you'll find:

  • Contact information for project leads
  • Repository links (where you'll be contributing)
  • Instructions on joining their Telegram or Discord for community interaction

We recommend that you reach out to either the project leads or the community to make your first contact. Sharing a bit about yourself helps everyone get familiar and opens the door for collaboration.

If you're unsure who to contact, ping @blumebee on Telegram for guidance.

Finding open issues
While we're enhancing the platform to display open issues directly on project pages, you can visit a project's repository to see current open issues. Engaging with the community is a great way to get tips and find out where you can contribute most effectively. If you find no open issues but are keen on contributing, feel free to suggest one!

Your next steps
Now that you know how to find and select a project on OnlyDust, take the leap. Start contributing to the world of open-source blockchain projects. We're excited to see the contributions you'll make!
