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.


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.
