The final stretch!
Welcome to week 4 — the final week of HackLibra
Welcome to the final week of HackLibra!
We hope that things are going well and according to plan.
Our judges are starting to prepare for the coming grading process of all the submissions. Grading will commence in the first week following the submission deadline, August 31st. The winners are expected to be announced within the first 2 weeks of September.
By the end of the grading process we look forward to congratulating not only the winning teams, but everyone who has participated in this first HackLibra competition.
A new team entered the competition this week. Join us in welcoming the project named: Social Media for Librans. You can find more information in the appropriate section.
Week 4: Current Teams
With this week’s addition, there are currently seven teams registered in the competition.
Registrations are still open so there may be additional teams joining the hackathon.
If any new teams join the hackathon, then that will be communicated in the coming newsletters.
Below is a list of the current teams and a short description of what they have proposed to work on.
We will be referring to all participating projects as ‘teams’ even though some projects consist of only one member.
- Team AbracaLibra
This project is focused on building a wallet for the Libra Core testnet.
The official wallet application project is named Calibra, but there is nothing hindering innovation in this space.
- Team JLibra
This team is working on a utility library to interact with Libra for Java applications.
The library will hide the complexity of the Libra gRPC API and signatures.
The expected benefits will be of making it easy for apps to integrate with Libra.
- Team Kulap
This project is developing a proof of concept of a Libra wallet.
With this project the Kulap team wants to develop a wallet that makes it easy for users to send and receive Libra coins on their smartphones.
- Team Price Oracle
This team is working on developing a dapp (decentralized application).
The application will be capable of collecting data from outside sources.
The data will then be provided to the Libra blockchain so that it can be consumed by other decentralised services.
- Team Help24
This team is working on implementing a slackbot capable of basic interaction with Libra, such as account creation, account import, balance check, token mint on the testnet and token transfer.
- Team Libra Auth
This team is implementing an authentication method utilizing a transaction over the Libra testnet.
- Team Social Media for Librans
This team is building a social media framework where people will be rewarded for their likes or comments using Libra.
