Welcome to another segment of the ‘OWS Basics’ batch, part of OWS Education.
In this chapter we will look into what contributors in the NEAR Ecosystem are and how to become one within the Open Web Sandbox.

Who is a Contributor?

Within the NEAR ecosystem, contributors are individuals bringing value to the ecosystem. They can take on tasks that communities offer through the Open Web Sandbox and get rewarded for them by OWS upon completion.
