∆ DIVING INTO THE TECH

∆ THE RESULTS

TEAM-1 :: Derived ID :: a digital self-sovereign identity replacement for analog German ID cards using Jolocom

“Derived ID” to replace analog German ID cards and put ownership of identity information back into the hands of users. Makes use of Jolocom’s universal identity protocol to create a demo (that worked!) of a self-sovereign identity smartwallet for German citizens.

TEAM-2 :: ScanTrust :: traceability for coffee supply chains using ScanTrust barcodes and IPDB storage

Combination ScanTrust (https://www.scantrust.com/) barcode + IPDB’s decentralized network to create a fully distributed system for ethical supply chain traceability — using the coffee drunk during the hackathon!

TEAM-3 :: The Doc DOC :: a browser plugin to detect fake news using Jolocom

Team “the DocDOC” spent the day developing a browser plugin to detect fake news using Jolocom’s self sovereign identity protocol to verify the identities of trusted journalists and articles.

TEAM-4 :: Domi :: a “Fair Housing” application for foreigners entering Berlin using IPDB, RNC, and Jolocom

Making use of IPDB for storage, Riddle&Code for NFC tag reads, and Jolocom for registration, “Domi” can be used by foreigners entering Berlin to store, access, and share their rental histories in a decentralized network.

TEAM-5 :: ForgetMe :: a consent key to revoke personal data from companies using Jolocom

The “ForgetMe” ‘consent key’, derived from the Jolocom identity protocol and user-facing SmartWallet, allows users to share and revoke personal data with online services.

TEAM-6 :: EUtopia :: a distributed ledger to register projects at universities using IPDB

“EUtopia” is a blockchain-backed solution towards selecting and logging milestones on university projects through the use of smart contracts.
