Detail Description

EDCON 2019 (Community Ethereum Development Conference) is a non-profit global conference which will happen in Sydney, Australia on 8-14 April 2019. The purpose of the conference is to improve communication among various Ethereum communities and to promote Ethereum ecosystem development on a global scale. EDCON is organized as a conference series, once a year in different countries. The previous EDCONs were held successfully in ESCP Europe, Paris 2017, and Ryerson University, Toronto 2018 (both were organized by LinkTime, one of the Chinese Ethereum community representatives). The Ethereum Foundation and various Ethereum communities have been strongly supportive to this high-quality community conference.

Great changes will take place in EDCON 2019. This time, we will bring a greater event with more opportunities for attendees to communicate with celebrities in this field and be involved in more interesting activities. You will see a total EDCON week which includes:

(1) EDCON Hackathon: a two-day event with non-stop creative storming for participants.

(2) EDCON Conference: a three-day conference including main conference, subconference, workshops, etc. Core Ethereum development teams will be invited to talk about the latest updates on Ethereum research and technology, and other pioneers in the field will share their thoughts on the current trends, projects and applications, as well as community building and development status.

(3) EDCON "Having Fun" day: a one-day outdoor activity. While this will no doubt be a great opportunity for network building between the community members, we would also like to provide the atmosphere in a more informal setting for everyone to relax after a week of hacking and sessions.

We sincerely welcome and invite friends from Ethereum communities worldwide to participate in this event. We welcome anyone to register to speak, and the topics collected will be reviewed by our consultant team to make sure that we are creating a top-quality event and can be as inclusive and fair as possible.

  2. an opportunity to get a job in one of the world's leading IT companies.
  3. the same meeting point for a huge number of investors, sponsors, experts, leaders and co-thinkers!
  4. a paid tour to Asia for the best teams and hackathons' participants.
  5. a ticket to the international club of Blockchain developers

CHALLENGES

Do you have the answer? Check out the challenges and formulate your solutions.

1
Simulator for running smart contract on a network and showing potential new states of the network resultant.
Would benefit from IDE integration (VSCode & Atom and Jetbrains).
2
Resource analyser/predictor, given smart contract—as LLVM IR—predict compute resource usage (Ethereum analogy: gas usage)
"Can do a static analysis approach, or a simulator (0.). All three would benefit from IDE integration (VSCode & Atom and Jetbrains)."
3
Translate LLVM IR back up to the higher level language, highlight parts of the source code which have nontermination risk (Halting problem).
All three would benefit from IDE integration (VSCode & Atom and Jetbrains).
4
Create a way to interact with NuCypher network either trough an extension (in browser), or as a library (in node.js and golang).
"* Browser extension (Chrome or Firefox), creating a nucypher object for Javascript * Node.js <> Python API * Golang <> Python API For that, you can create an RPC to interact with NuCypher code, or you can use any other methods which you consider convenient (API over sockets or native messaging). Try to create an interface similar to characters we have (e.g. Alice and Bob from from nucypher.characters.lawful, and DataSource from from nucypher.data_sources). You can make them in nucypher namespace (e.g. nucypher.Alice etc). In browsers, Javascript can interact with this nucypher namespace similarly to interacting with web3 object. You can implement same methods as we have for these objects in Python (an example can be seen here: https://github.com/nucypher/nucypher/blob/federated/examples/finnegans_wake_demo/finnegans-wake-verbose-demo.py). "
5
Blind identity management
You may find helpful chapter 6.1 in the thesis written by David Nunez https://riuma.uma.es/xmlui/handle/10630/13221
6
Decentralized digital rights management (DDRM).
"E.g. any project selling data online autonomously, pay-to-stream etc. Cryptographic access control can act as a decentralized DRM. Access controls can be embedded into the encryption itself so that they follow the data wherever it goes. Conditional re-encryption tokens can be controlled by a smart contract and released only upon payment. Services like a decentralized Netflix or an encrypted marketplace selling software, apps, photos, and other digital content can now be built using NuCypher KMS."
7
Handling secrets for containers running in VPS
"Secrets are only saved in containers in encrypted form, decrypted when you use only, with access through NuCypher. NuCypher is ideal for the storage of any secrets, such as sensitive environment variables, database credentials, and API keys. For scripts, a re-encryption token can be generated for the duration of a script, then revoked. For example, developers can safely store encrypted database credentials on GitHub, giving temporary access to these credentials once an instance is deployed. Even if the GitHub repository is public, the credentials cannot be used by an unauthorized person."
8
Shared credentials and enterprise password management (decentralized lastpass)
NuCypher KMS can manage shared credentials that employees use to access web services. An audit log can be built to monitor who accesses what secrets. When an employee leaves, it is easy to revoke access or even roll keys

Detail Description

The MOBI Grand Challenge (MGC), sponsored by MOBI, the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative, and TIoTA, the Trusted IoT Alliance, is loosely modeled on the DARPA grand challenge for autonomous driving which captured the public imagination and launched the autonomous driving revolution. The MGC will run in bi-annual stages over three years.

The first stage of the MGC will run from October 12th, 2018 to January 10th, 2019 beginning with a launch in New Mexico and culminating in finalist presentations and a public demonstration of selected technologies at an event hosted by the BMW Group, MOBI community member, in Munich Germany on February 15th, 2019.

The goal of the first stage is to demonstrate the pieces of the BC/DLT Mobility puzzle that can be addressed today. Entries in this first stage could include, but are not limited to: exchanging data and payments with other vehicles and infrastructure; operating in a tokenized environment by registering assets and payments on a public or permissioned ledger; negotiating rights of way, access, and use of infrastructure in a cooperative and distributed ecosystem; adjusting behavior to maximize efficiency from providing services, buying fuel, managing pollution, congestion and carbon footprint, etc.

Future stages of the challenge will draw on the demonstrations of this first stage to set goals, narrow the selection criteria, and address gaps.

The ultimate goal of the challenge is to create the first viable, decentralized, ad-hoc network of blockchain/dlt connected vehicles and infrastructure that can reliably share data, coordinate behavior, and thereby improve urban mobility. 

ELIGIBILTY

  1. Companies, Universities, NGOs, Startups, or any Independent Developers.
  2. Anybody who wishes to create a solution that solves issues in urban mobility.
  3. Any Member or Non-Members of MOBI.

Method of Registration

Requirements for Deadline

Immediate Next Steps

Head over to https://ethberlin.com/hacker-application/, to register for the hackathon, the registration deadline is August 7th. But do apply

If you need a visa for the hackathon, do mention that in the form...

Detail Description

What to expect in terms of ETHBerlin structure and organization?

The event will be held at Factory Berlin, which has not one, but TWO venues.

One is in the central district of Berlin, Mitte. The other brand new Factory venue is bang in the middle of the city’s startup scene, Gorlitzer Park.

Factory is one of the city’s biggest innovation hubs and these guys have been involved with the blockchain community here for a long time, so it’s only fitting the hackathon is held here.

On Day 1 we will have a launch event/mini-conf to kick everything off at Factory’s Mitte location, followed by a cocktail reception, cos we got to get those inspirational juices flowing.

We will also have a HACKER ONLY session at Factory’s other venue in Berlin’s infamous Gorlitzer Park, aimed to bring the hackers up to speed, set testnets and prepare their skillsets.

Day 2 will be the Hackathon + workshops (Görlitzer)

Day 3 will see the end of the hackathon, followed by presentations to the judges and then the announcement of the winners.

AND in true Berlin style, we will end with a blowout so everyone can let rip after an intense couple of days glued to their laptops.

 

How can I get a ticket to the talks/hackathon?

ETHBerlin is committed to inclusion, diversity, education, and above all, to the Ethereum Community improvement. We will not sell any tickets for this event. Some tickets will be available for free for things such as Day 1: conferences, or the Day 2 workshops. We will release separate applications in due time. Volunteers, Speakers, Sponsors, and Hackers will have access to all events (although they will need to sign up for some due to capacity restrictions)

Detail Description

The State of Wyoming enacted five trail-blazing blockchain bills during its 2018 legislative session that garnered international attention. The WyoHackathon 2018 provides an opportunity for the global blockchain community and the State of Wyoming to converge, thank each other, collaborate, and keep Breakin' Through.

Wyoming has a rich history of Breakin' Through! Wyoming has a long record of being first: The first woman to vote in the US, the first female governor, the first national park, and the first LLC law. And it blazed a trail in blockchain, becoming the first elected body to recognize utility tokens as a new form of property that is neither securities nor money under Wyoming law. Wyoming offers blockchain businesses its most favorable tax, business entity, and privacy protections.

Requirements for Deadline

Register by emailing your Github account link to social@moss.land

Immediate Next Steps

Register for the event.
Learn/refine your game development skills.
Build a game before the event on unity, phasorjs
Read Looms SDK documentation

Detail Description

We are pleased to invite you to attend another epic hackathon, this time in beautiful Seoul, South Korea, from September 7–9, co-hosted by our friends at Mossland. If you are an experienced Unity and/or Javascript game developer and would like to apply, please email a link to your Github to social@moss.landwith the subject “Seoul Hackathon” — Deadline to apply is August 26, 2018.

Very recently, Mossland — the creators of a blockchain-based augmented reality (AR) game where users buy and sell virtual real estate — announced that they’re building several of their mini-services on top of the Loom SDK.

So, if you decide to attend this hackathon, remember that you are in GREAT hands 😉

 

Prerequisites for attendance:

  • Experience with game development (Unity, Cocos, JavaScript, etc.) — is a MUST.
  • Interest in building apps on Ethereum (technical knowledge not required — the Loom Network team will be at the event to help you through building your first DApp)
  • Laptop (macOS/Linux/Windows 10)
  • Energy, enthusiasm, and creativity 😎

Not to brag, but every game developer who has played around with the Loom SDK in past hackathons has raved about its ease-of-use.

So, you’ll be WELL ARMED to code up some incredible projects like this 😉

At the start of the hackathon, you will be given a copy of the Loom SDK.

…and after you are fully set up, you can begin using our game SDKs for Unity, Cocos, Phaser.js, Truffle / Web3, or JavaScript to build a DAppChain game.

The Loom SDK also comes with built-in example DApps you can simply download and run with minimal setup time.

For example…

A Unity-based side-scrolling adventure game, a social network, and browser-based games using Phaser and WebSockets are some of those example DApps that can be run out of the box.

Think of those as the “Hello World” equivalent of what’s possible with our SDK.

At the end of the event, you’ll be judged by a panel from both Loom Networkand Mossland.

Other than serious bragging rights — the finalists will win exciting prizes as well as an opportunity to be hired by Loom Network (full-time or part-time) OR Mossland to build groundbreaking scaling technology for Ethereum.

Not only that, you’ll also get Moss Coins (MOC) and meals at this hackathon.

A distributed social hackathon….so what’s that mean 🤔

Well, when you have an open source project it’s in your best interest to allow people from all over the world to contribute, afterall that’s the meaning of open source, right?

So our idea was to host a hackathon, where anyone could contribute, collaborate and create projects directly into one organization and we would fund bounties and provide review code in real time.

Our goal with this invitingly open source initiative is to inspire and educate incoming developers!
