What is IPDB hackathon?
As a part of Revision Summit 2018, IPDB is hosting a one-day hackathon in collaboration with Jolocom, Riddle&Code, and Ocean Protocol. As many as 50 developers, UX/UI designers, hackers and makers from the Web3 will build an answer to the question: How do we reach a more human-centric and purpose-driven society in the digital age?

Our chief aim is to work together to turn talk into working code with a particular focus on:

- promoting democratic values in the digital age by advocating for basic freedoms and rights, and lowering the barrier to entry for democratic participation on the internet;
- expanding data protection by promoting data sovereignty for all citizens;
- improving social safety by supporting initiatives that embrace resilient, decentralized social safety nets adapted to respond to the challenges of the future; and
- sustainable economic growth that supports transition from profit-oriented economic systems to purpose-driven models.


Why participate?
IPDB Hackathon #1 features among the various meetups, workshops and other events taking place on 19 November for Revision’s Co-Creators day. Participation in the hackathon is not only FREE, but all hackathon participants will also receive free entry to the Revision conference at Kraftwerk the following day. Free food and drinks + additional giveaways will be provided. 

At the end of the day, a grand prize winner will be selected by YOU! The coolest idea will be voted on by hackathon participants and the winning team will have the option to participate in one of our future DWeb meetups – either by presenting what they’re working on, or simply getting more familiar with the community.  

We are excited to have a cohort of experienced mentors and speakers for our #codeforpurpose hackathon, there throughout the day to work closely with hackers, providing guidance and support where needed:

- Iryna Nezhynska, Jolocom, UX/UI designer

*** Participation in the hackathon requires completion of a light touch registration process. After you click register, you will be contacted by a member of our team to provide a few details about your development or design experience. An RSVP alone is not sufficient. ***


Final note:
Are you working on solving a social challenge using blockchain? Register to the event and let us know! Depending on the type of challenge and number of hackers available, you may be able to pitch your idea to hackers and include them in building or continuing development of your project. 

Together, we can raise awareness of the potential for decentralized technologies to foster social change through working and creating with this technology hands-on.
