IPDB Hackathon #1: Code for Purpose - Decentralize the Web


⚡What is IPDB hackathon? ⚡
As a part of Revision Summit 2018, IPDB is hosting a one-day hackathon in collaboration with Jolocom, Riddle&Code, and Ocean Protocol. Over 50 developers, UX/UI designers, hackers and makers from the Web3 will build an answer to the question: How do we reach a more human-centric and purpose-driven society in the digital age?

Our chief aim is to work together to turn talk into working code with a particular focus on:

🌍- promoting democratic values in the digital age by advocating for basic freedoms and rights, and lowering the barrier to entry for democratic participation on the internet;
🔥- expanding data protection by promoting data sovereignty for all citizens;
🌟- improving social safety by supporting initiatives that embrace resilient, decentralized social safety nets adapted to respond to the challenges of the future; and
💪- sustainable economic growth that supports transition from profit-oriented economic systems to purpose-driven models.


🏆 Why participate? 🏆
IPDB Hackathon #1 features among the various meetups, workshops and other events taking place on 19 November for Revision’s Co-Creators day. Participation in the hackathon is not only FREE, but all hackathon participants will also receive free entry to the Revision conference at Kraftwerk the following day. Free food and drinks + additional giveaways will be provided.

At the end of the day, a grand prize winner will be selected by YOU! The coolest idea will be voted on by hackathon participants and the winning team will have the option to participate in one of our future DWeb meetups – either by presenting what they’re working on, or simply getting more familiar with the community.
