AEDT timezone - Open to countries in Oceania & Asia
We are generating data at a rapid pace. It is so exponential that today’s Web2.0 centralised cloud storage solutions will not be able to scale or provide the experience we need in the future.
IPFS is a decentralised web protocol for sharing data quickly and easily. Filecoin, built on top of IPFS supports storing data long-term via on-chain deals. Together, they will enable us to break free from centralised services while conveniently allowing us to enjoy the same luxuries of speed and guaranteed storage that centralised services would bring.
This challenge is seeking innovators to design UX and/or develop functionality that takes advantage of these new decentralised, verifiable data possibilities. Technologists and designers will need to solve cyber risk management in the future, the verifiable nature of the IPFS protocols in the Filecoin distributed network has the potential to deliver next generation trusted data storage solutions.
While the Web3.0 subject area is new, we ensure that you will be educated and supported before, during and after the event.
Teams are invited to participate in either of two challenges delivering either build/ MVP or design of experience that produces working prototypes:
Challenge 1 (Industry): Design experience or build functionality that uses IPFS and/or Filecoin to solve a problem specific to one industry.
If you are a team working on challenge 1 some key industry focus areas are:-
i) Tertiary education
ii) Health records
iii) Environmental sciences
v) Music Industry
Challenge 2 (Integrations): Design experience or build functionality that integrates IPFS/Filecoin storage with Web3 networks such as NEAR, Polygon, Flow smart contracts, or Chainlink oracles.
To equip you to perform and be competitive in the challenge we will provide educational resources for you to learn at your own pace, live Q&A sessions and 1-1 mentors and experts during the event.
You can earn to learn and should your project be shortlisted you will gain exposure to a global community and opportunities.
To learn and win.
Anyone with an interest in Web3.0 and Filecoin.
Anyone with an dev or design background.
Teams will focus on either:
