TRACKS

Coin - Icon-04.png

Fintech

Decentralised tech has it’s biggest use case in Fintech. If you’re applying to this track, think (not restricted to)

  1. Decentralise Finance - building your own bank powered by unstoppable code resulting in hyper capital efficiency and untameable governance

  2. Permissionless lending - smart contracts lend global capital to cash strapped institutions without intermediaries 

  3. CBDCs - Adding to the technology stack that would make CBDCs more effective

Sustainability

Decentralised tech can usher environmentally responsible behaviour with financial incentives. If you’re building sustainability solutions, think (not restricted to) 

  1. Token incentivised circular economies - A water DAO that incentivises homes to conserve water and water transporters to buy directly from homes?

  2. Carbon credit tokenisation - Effectively calculate carbon credits and create money markets for them to incentivise environmentally aware choices 

  3. Fractional ownership of power generation - Community-owned renewable power generation with yield upside to investors

Logistics

The world can move more effectively with better supply chain transparency and efficiency. If you’re building for this, think (not restricted to) 

 

  1. Supply chain - fully transparent supply chain systems put on an immutable ledger to reduce fraud risk and increase efficiency 

  2. IoT based track and trace - leverage at source data on blockchains for more accurate data driven supply chain decisions 

  3. Data quality incentivisation - building workforce incentive systems with instant payouts to encourage accurate data recording

Entertainment

Blockchain has begun to disrupt the entertainment sector. If you’re leveraging decentralised tech in this sector, think (not restricted to)

  1. NFTs - Non fungible assets that encapsulate absolute ownership that signify ownership and provable lived experiences 

  2. Metaverses - Build virtual worlds that will rival real world relevance starting with simple games to full blown alternate realities

Infrastructure and tooling

Web3 infrastructure is still nascent and needs innovation in all areas of the tech stack. If you’re building for this track, think (not restricted to) 

 

  1. Layer 1 and 2 scaling solutions - internet scale decentralised tech need higher throughput and greater security without compromising on decentralisation 

  2. Developer tools - mass developer usability for decentralised technologies need many more abstraction technologies that makes building simpler 

  3. dWeb - Incentivised decentralised storage and compute solutions that can decentralise how the internet is consumed  

  4. Oracles - The bridge between real world data into the digital world in a trustless manner 

Healthcare

h.png

As more health data becomes easily available, owner consent and privacy become paramount. Potential solutions for projects in this space are (not restricted to) 

 

  1. Data marketplaces - consent based, incentivised data marketplaces for personal health data which can be used by solution providers in an obfuscated way 

  2. Health insurance - private and consent based systems to provide dynamic insurance policies using real time health data 

  3. Secure EHRs - blockchain based EHRs put on blockchains to combat tampering and unlawful usage
