Web3.0: The Next Vision of the Internet

Problem statement

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!!!

FAQ

General

What is the hackathon theme?

The theme for the Singapore Blockchain Innovation Challenge 2022 is Web3.0. We require projects to develop solutions using blockchain technologies.

This event is organised by the Singapore Blockchain Innovation Programme which is a collaborative and nationwide technical community hosted at the National University of Singapore. Visit us at https://sbip.sg to find out more!

Yes, there are no restrictions except that participants under the Enthusiast track should only use platforms, blockchains, APIs, libraries or software development kits that are available and authorized for public use.

Yes, you can start preliminary work on your hack. But to be fair to other participants, most of your hack’s source code must be written during the hackathon period.

To be eligible to register for the Corporate track, an ACRA registration number is required. The judging criteria, rules and prizes for both tracks are different. The judging criteria would be stricter for Corporate track but participating companies are allowed to use their own private APIs and can stand to win 1 year free SBIP membership.

We have mentors who may be able to help your team and we will also organise workshops on key topics as well. Head to our Discord server to ask for help.

Registration

I don’t have a team. Can my project for the hackathon be done solo?

No, project teams should have a minimum of two members.

We have designated a Discord server for communication purposes amongst our hackathon participants. Feel free to find your team members here.

Only the team leader needs to be a resident in Singapore. If you are an international participant, make sure to join a team with a leader who is a resident in Singapore.

Yes, but we would require you to fill up and submit a parental consent form for registration.

Registration deadline is by 9 January 2023.

No, hackathon projects has non-technical aspects too so everyone is welcome to join. In addition, you can take this hackathon as a learning opportunity to get hands-on experience with blockchain.

Yes, we welcome attendees to join us on 25 November and 13 January for the events.

Participating in the hackathon is free. Attending the events are also free.

Hackathon Workflow

What does my team need to include in the proposal?

It needs to give us an overview of what your team wants to build for the hackathon. A writeup would do.

To qualify for certificate of participation, your team needs to submit your project for the selection round by 9 January.

Both tracks are required to submit a writeup and a git repository link. The git repository should have a README for setup and other notes / instructions. For Enthusiast track, the git repository must be public whereas in Corporate track, git repository links can be private.

The judges will vet through submissions and shortlist teams for the Finale Round.

Project submissions will be via our Discord server.
