Ideas for R&D Hackathon


Orbs R&D team is going to conduct hackathon event.
For quite a while we have our hands itching to build some cool stuff utilizing Orbs platform.

Do you have any suggestions or ideas for what should be built? Post them here.


Here is a list of different categories that should be focused on for the Hackathon event. It will be a great idea to have a hackathon event in collaboration with local officials as to showcase solutions that can be built to help the local community/government, with their problems, or have a representative as part of the voting.

• Identity
• Authenticity (counterfeits & ownership)
• Documentation (records)
• P2P Lending
• Lottery/Casino
• Voting/Election
• Crypto-collectibles (creating, sending and trading, perhaps an exchange?)
• Reputation
• Messaging (I know there is a demo available already)
• Remittance ( +support for multiple payment transactions instead of one wallet at a time)
• Gaming (as currently, RPG games built on Ethereum have to wait for confirmation to occur-not playable)
• Healthcare

a really cool idea would be to clone cryptokitties (openly available code) and show how it can easily scaled utilizing Orbs, have this running for a week, use it for good marketing :slight_smile:


I also agree to bring few aspect of Knight have mention such as:

  • Privacy & Security:
    Privacy is a key aspect worldwide such as GDPR from Europe.
    Blockchain is not security free environment however it can secure the usage combining DLT
    & anonymous aspect.
  • Gaming:
    Maybe because 80% of revenue generated within Android + IOS market is from Gaming industry.
    The market itself growing rapidly over the year. Database it create the usage from pretty much everywhere
    Social-gaming(gambling) industry also suitable.
  • Medicine authenticity(many medicines look alike and can be confusing, leading to unfortunate accident)

  • used car records(accident, no accident, fix-history, km-record etc)_used car owner history etc.

  • contracts(business investment execution according to plan(approval from investor when agreed requirements met)

  • fake website / fake advertisement with click-baits

  • digital identity autheticity

  • government / association approval broker, business etc

  • antique authenticy

  • education record authenticity

  • passport authentic identity

  • emergency call(911) identification

  • door lock for house and car

  • time scheduled inheritance solution(future contracts)

  • (applicable to construction, building industry) put building portion in a project on smart contract thus only when requirements(the promised products) are met the expense is billed. When the product comes out the agreed standard can be checked thus preventing ill-built product or practice(to benefit one party).
  • reward / punish / preventive contract for active/meaningful contributor, scammer/misbehavior, some sort of motivated influencer each in a community(reward/punishing system that can be sustainable for the benefit of the ecosystem. It should not be one that can be conspired, controlled, influenced by an some-motivated party)
  • (business model) organic translation that combines with big data. Thus improving translation accuracy(combining AI+human)
  • stock security registry (+over the stock security registry). it will prevent fake security or scam.

(note:will edit and add more if idea arises)


The CryptoKitties idea is really good for hackathon!! This would create some news too
