Event description

Description

Come together with like minded folks to create cool new ways to use Decentralized Database technology, and win Crypto!


What is this about?:

Decentralized application developers have been using database backends that have been hosted in the cloud and have not truly been fulfilling the unique demands and needs of decentralized applications.

Bluzelle is just that – an on-demand, reliable, scalable and fast decentralized database that dynamically supports your applications. Wherever your applications need the data to be now and tomorrow. And to whatever scale needed.

Video of what Decentralized Database technology is all about: https://youtu.be/tYQk5vWc83o

Our Github is here https://github.com/bluzelle/bluzelle and we're building out the decentralized database right now. So in this hackathon you'll be given a database interface and the opportunity to perform CRUD operations. Then it's up to you and your team to think of creative applications for a decentralized database that can be whipped together before the time is up!


Do you want to:

  • Test out your decentralized application ideas and network with dApp developers?

  • Be advised by developers who’ve built components of decentralized applications?

  • Be critiqued by technology and business leaders familiar with decentralized applications?

  • Compete for the best ideas and win hardware wallets loaded with Crypto Currency?

HACKATHON PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT

Bluzelle is pleased to present the Decentralized Database Hackathon (“Hackathon”) hosted by SFU Venture Labs. The Hackathon is governed by this Hackathon Participation Agreement (“Agreement”). By entering the Hackathon, you (“Participant”) agree to abide by the Agreement which is a binding legal agreement between Participant and Bluzelle with respect to the Hackathon.


Participation in the Hackathon

Participant must be at least 18 years of age and present at the hackathon with their team for the duration of the hackathon. In addition to the Agreement, Participant agrees to abide by SFU Venture Lab’s Code of Conduct and additional documents, if any, provided in connection with the Hackathon (collectively “Additional Documents”).

Bluzelle has the right to cancel or suspend the Hackathon with or without notice and for any or no reason. Bluzelle is not responsible for any damage or inconvenience caused by a cancellation or suspension of the Hackathon.


Teams

Participants can work as an individual (team of one) or in groups of two to six Participants (each group of 1-6 Participants is a “Team”).


Submission

Teams of Participants are expected to provide submissions leveraging Distributed Database Technology. While suggested areas relate to how this new database solution can be used to host globally distributed data, teams of Participants are not restricted to this area. Team submissions can range from a high level presentation via Powerpoint or Keynote, to a rudimentary application demonstrating their initiative. By providing a submission in the Hackathon, each Participant represents and warrants that the submission does not violate any applicable law or any third party intellectual property rights.


Judging

The Hackathon winners will be chosen from the teams of Participants by a panel of judges selected by Bluzelle. The judges’ decisions are final, binding and uncontestable. Judgment will be based on:

(i) Utilization of the Distributed Database Technology into the solution (10%)

(ii) Leveraging the blockchain concepts inherent in the technology (15%)

(iii) Leveraging the Swarm, or Peer to Peer, concepts inherent in the technology (15%)

(iv) Identifying a real-world problem (30%)

(v) Suggesting an innovative approach to solving the real world problem in (iv) (30%)


A total of three winning Entries will be chosen on the above criteria, for which the hardware wallets and crypto will be given as prizes.


Prizes

The prizes will be divided evenly amongst Participant team members unless otherwise noted. Bluzelle reserves the right not to award a prize in the event of an insufficient number of eligible entries meeting the minimum judging criteria as determined in Bluzelle’s sole discretion. Bluzelle is not responsible for any dispute among teams or team Participants related to prizes.
