The Decentralized Identity Foundation organized did:hack, a decentralized identity hackathon designed for people to learn, collaborate, and think creatively about how decentralized identity technology can be leveraged to improve digital interactions in the future.
The 4-day virtual event included sessions from TBD, SpruceID, Dock.io, Aviary Tech, Trinsic, and Danube Tech - all providing educational sessions on ecosystem tools that enable decentralized identity and verifiable credentials.
Hackathon participants gathered in small teams to build projects centered around decentralized identity. There were some amazing ideas including:
did:loc, a privacy preserving location sharing DID method
- a decentralized personal finance app using Web5
- a mobile voting app that allows people to cast a vote from a mobile phone, and verifies a voter's eligibility with a verifiable credential that belongs to a DID
- a browser extension to display and verify DID and Verifiable Presentation data for the currently viewed website
did-bsv, a DID method for verifiable ordinals
- a decentralized housing platform using DIDs and VCs for reputation tracking
Fortunately, the presentations of projects was recorded.
D-PFin, a team comprised of Moises Jaramillo, Courtney Chan and Dixita Sharegar, used Web5 to create a decentralized personal finance app that stored financial data in a DWN and provides information to the user to make financial decisions.
We're delighted that the D-PFin team chose Web5 to build their decentralized app! It's a testament of the power of coupling decentralized personal data stores with decentralized identity. Be sure to watch the team's final presentation below.
