2020 Trusted Computing Hackathon
Development, Innovation & Challenge Based on TEE
Trias is a Layer-1 infrastructure, which takes “building universal trust” as its responsibility and adheres to the idea of making encryption world more credible & secure. Trias has now launched its “2020 Trusted Computing Hackathon: Development, Innovation Competition based on TEE”. It advocates the majority of development enthusiasts to carry out innovation and development based on TEE. To improve the existing pain points of Ethereum Network and pay tribute to Ethereum 2.0 and its progress scalability, we can make use of TEE.
We firmly believe that Layer “- 1” network of Trias can continuously contribute to the ecological vision and also believes that the realization of this vision requires adhering to the tradition of ecological decentralization of blockchain and enabling potential global innovators.
“2020 Trusted Computing Hackathon: Development & Innovation Competition based on TEE” will invite outstanding developers from all over the world and give lot of exposure to their creativity based on Layer “- 1” public chain and trusted computing.
The goal is to attain innovative business applications based on blockchain technology as well as showcase the unlimited possibilities of the developer team and individual, themselves.
This Hackathon competition will prove to be a challenge, an opportunity and a brain churning carnival for developers.
TEE stands for Trusted Execution Environment (hereinafter referred to as TEE), is a new technology which appeared very recently (about two years ago).This environment can guarantee computation that is not interfered by any normal operating system, and hence the name “Trusted”. The trusted applications are separated by cryptographic technology, and the data of other trusted applications cannot be read and operated at will. In addition, trusted applications need to go through integrity verification before execution to ensure that applications are not tampered with.
Layer “- 1” is a new generation of intelligent contract operation platform, development framework and collaboration ecology based on Trias system, which is compatible with entire platform of TEE. In order to adapt to the computing power characteristics of different platforms, the Leviatom layer of Trias allows any node to support any combination of three types of responsibilities. This, not only increases the flexibility of the consensus network structure, but also allocates the consensus computing amount according to the computing power to achieve high efficiency and energy saving.
The main purpose of this Hackathon is to gather top projects, development teams and communities, to empower potential innovators and stimulate their outstanding talents and finally contribute in Trias ecological construction.
With the participation of high level and wide range of participants, we expect that, we can put forward innovative solutions to the problems at hand. At the same time, unite innovators and form a Trias Ecological Community, through this Hackathon.
Challenge: How to use TEE to solve the difficulties faced by the Blockchain Industry?
The software and hardware integration framework of TEE + Blockchain can maximize resource saving on the chain while meeting the most basic needs, so as to bring a smoother user experience.The smart contract operates in the TEE area and is isolated from the external operating system and hardware, ensuring the security and confidentiality, so as to achieve 100% user control of their data.
For example, in the DeFi field, TEE can be used to enhance the privacy and integrity of the blockchain, such as private currency transactions, anonymous and verifiable voting of trusted cross chain transaction intermediaries and so on.
Additionally, TEE can solve the problem of authenticity in the field of distributed storage, even before the data is put on the chain by completing data collection and encryption uploaded locally. TEE, therefore can effectively solve the dilemma and problem of “storage proof” of existing distributed storage protocols.
How to join?
Based on TEE design, contestants can participate in the competition by submitting their PPT demonstrating their project or finalized official website design or a code to solve the existing development bottleneck of blockchain industry.
Team building rules:
1–3 members form a team. Team members can form a team by themselves or with the help of competition community.
All development should be done based on TEE of Trias.
Trias will select winners on different levels from three dimensions of innovation, technicality and completion.
All the participants are requested to make a note of the deadline. No application will not be accepted after the deadline.
Once you agree to participate in the competition, you also acceptance that Trias can use your personal information in various publicity activities, and Trias has the right to publicize the results of the project.
