About the Organisation
Singapore Blockchain Innovation Programme (SBIP) is an initiative founded by Enterprise Singapore (ESG), Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), the National Research Foundation Singapore (NRF), and supported by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to further strengthen Singapore’s blockchain ecosystem.
Web3.0: The Next Vision of the Internet
Web 3.0 is the third and next generation of the Internet that does not yet have a canonical, universally accepted definition. It will have a strong emphasis on decentralized applications and make extensive use of blockchain-based technologies as well as machine learning and artificial intelligence to help empower more intelligent and adaptive applications. As Web 3.0 is currently being defined and developed, therein lies challenges and potential for innovation and creativity.
For this hackathon, teams are to propose innovative and creative Web 3.0 solutions or tools using the blockchain as the underlying technology stack. Solutions may cover all relevant Web 3.0 topics or concepts and teams may layer other non-blockchain technologies for their projects. There is no limitation on which blockchain to deploy on. The aim of the Singapore Blockchain Innovation Challenge 2022 is to unleash one’s innovation and creativity so go crazy with their ideas!!!
