Hack.Summit(“Blockchain”) Contest Spotlight: MakerDAO

MakerDAO has created a challenge as a part of Hack.Summit(“Blockchain”) — a global, virtual hackathon hosted by Deconet and Hack VC that will take place from July 6th-8th, 2018.

MakerDAO is a decentralized organization dedicated to bringing stability to the crypto economy through Dai, the world’s first stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain. Dai is an asset-backed hard currency that addresses the crypto economy’s problems of volatility with a secure and transparent smart contract platform of permission-less loans.

Challenge

Check out the full challenge description here (create an account in Deconet to view it). Additional resources and judging criteria are also provided.

MakerDAO is offering three challenges:

#1 Cross Platform Tray Application for CDP Monitoring

Create a cross platform (osx/linux/win) tray application that is capable of displaying the current health of a specific CDP. The tool should use the MakerDAO Query API as a data source if possible.

#2 Really Decentralize Things

Package up the CDP dashboard or the Oasisdex trading interface into an Electron/Muon wrapper. Must have embedded MetaMask integration and support local parity nodes. Should have no dependencies on the existing web interfaces; contract interaction and local rendering only.

#3 Mobile upgrade for youvegoteth.github.io

The challenge here is to be able to send people links to youvegoteth.github.io so users can email Dai through their phones.
