This week Facebook went dark, serving to remind the world of the importance of decentralized identity, sovereign data, and Web3 application architectures. A user-centric data architecture is key to building Web3 applications: one where data is hosted on a decentralized network, stored with individual users, written and queried by applications client-side, and reusable across applications.
Hack the sovereign web
Kicking off today, the Sovereign Data Hackathon is a virtual event that runs for two weeks, from October 7th to October 21st, and brings together developers, product owners, and designers from around the world to help build the future of Web3 data applications.
There's still time to register. Sign up for the hackathon here.
- $10,000+ in prizes
- 2 weeks of workshops, talks, and online community events
Challenges & Prizes
Bounties will reward teams that creatively develop awesome applications on Ceramic's sovereign data stack, but also those that expand the open source ecosystem of standards, tools, and integrations around it. For an example of some tools created by the community that are featured extensively in this hackathon, check out DataModels, Glaze, and Self.ID.
Bounties will be offered in three tracks during the #SovereignData hackathon:
1. Open Track
- Open Prize: Best Hack using Self.ID or Glaze
- Add decentralized data features to existing open source projects
2. Data Models and Standards
- Add new data models to the DataModels Registry
- Issue identity-related credentials to DID DataStore
- Tooling to migrate schemas from schema.org to DataModels
- Schema discovery/curation models
- Tooling for automatic schema upgrades/migration (e.g. productizing ideas from Cambria project)
3. Partner Track
- Build an app using DID DataStore for storage and Magic for authentication
- Integrate Safe:DID with Radicle to add profiles to Radicle Orgs
