POSTPONED: MINI HACKATHON: Defi In Emerging Economies


In preparation for the DISH 2020 Hackathon, we will be holding a special event meant to connect all interested developers & enthusiasts in one place.

During this meetup, developers will learn about MakerDAO which is one of the oldest blockchain projects in the blockchain space and are expected to build an application using MakerDAO. PHP 10,000 worth of prize money will be distributed amongst the 3 most innovative solutions.

MakerDAO is a decentralized and permissionless lending platform that allows users to borrow its USD pegged stablecoin, called Dai, against their token assets and to achieve price stability in crypto, creating an opportunity to interact with decentralized applications without experiencing the volatility of the overall cryptocurrency market. The lending platform is managed by a set of smart contracts instead of a bank, allowing for greatly reduced interest rates and better global liquidity.

-Solutions have to be shared on Github to be elegible for judging. No exceptions.
-Judging criteria are Innovativeness, Technical quality and Commercial Viability. Blockdevs Asia trustees will judge during the event.
-Solutions can be conceptual only, but those that have code will get more points during judging.

Since the ultimate goal is to learn Blockchain development together and have fun, we prepared some starting code for you. You are free to review and do some study before the event. You can find them here:

-Some starting code for using the Dai Savings rate: .
-ShuttleOne is about to launch their services in the Philippines. Be one of the first to come up with a product that incorporates it! :
