Overview

Join with other top blockchain coders, Accenture, Hyperledger and sustainability organizations for an inspiring 2-day hackathon.

Please note that participation in this hackathon is restricted to residents of The United States of America, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, and India.

The topic to be addressed by the teams admitted is “Hack for the Earth,” generating innovative blockchain-based applications that can help advance sustainable supply chain practices using blockchain technology. Blockchain has been called an equalizer. That’s because it has the potential to add transparency and trust to many opaque processes. But it also has the potential to help more individuals participate in the global economy through things like financial inclusion. The Sustainable Supply Chain Problem: The very future of our globe depends on sustainable practices.

  • Product integrity—assuring sustainable protocols are maintained
  • A more direct connection between growers/producers and consumers
  • Transparency of data so all parties can see the chain of trade for goods
  • Reduction of human errors, faster response time to delivery challenges
  • Authentication of goods and services that make up a sustainable product
  • Detection of unethical suppliers and counterfeiters

Sample sustainable supply chain applications with blockchain include:

  • Energy: Monitoring clean electricity & renewable resources
  • Fashion: Tracking apparel production from the shearing of the sheep, to the making of a sweater with the wool, to the final garment
  • Coffee: Create records of the origins of coffee beans to ensure their purity and ethical trade. Mobile apps allow coffee lovers to check on the origins of each cup to ensure quality and freshness.

Participants will be asked to use Hyperledger blockchain technologies to create apps that consumers, producers, farmers, and shippers can use to increase transparency and facilitate peer-to-peer transactions.

All eligible Entries received during the Contest Event will be judged in accordance with the criteria set forth below:

  • Concept (40%)
  • Design (25%)
  • Development (25%)
  • Presentation (10%)
