XDC Foundation



The XDC Network was established in 2017 by a community of developers, early adopters, and advocates who champion the adoption of XDC's blockchain technology.

The network's long-term vision is to solve real-world problems, such as enabling small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to participate in trade finance and ensuring transparent and trustless delivery of charitable funds.

The XDC Foundation, established in 2021, supports the growth, development, and adoption of the XDC Network, fostering a community-driven initiative with developers, world trade experts, and content creators.

πŸ’‘ Hackathon Categories & Applications

The categories below serve as inspiration for the kind of projects we are excited to see. They are not strict requirements, and we encourage you to interpret them creatively or come up with entirely new ideas.

  1. πŸ€– Tip Bot for Social Media: We challenge you to develop an innovative bot that integrates seamlessly with popular social media platforms, enabling cryptocurrency tipping. The bot should provide an easy and secure way for users to transfer small amounts of crypto to reward and appreciate valuable content. Focus on balancing security concerns with a user-friendly interface to enhance the tipping experience.
  2. 🧾 Activity Tracking Bot for Wallet Movements: Can you design a robust bot capable of monitoring and reporting wallet transactions on the blockchain? It should track chosen wallet addresses and promptly notify users of any activity via their preferred social media channels. Your bot should accurately extract data from the blockchain and present it to users in a comprehensive and accessible manner. Consider tracking a variety of assets, including NFTs, ERC20 tokens, or the native token.
  3. 🎫 Zero-Knowledge Money Coupons in the form of NFTs: We invite you to create a ground-breaking proof-of-concept system that transforms money coupons into NFTs, leveraging zero-knowledge proofs to ensure user privacy. Your system should aim to emulate and improve upon traditional money transfer systems prevalent in developing countries, highlighting the advantages brought by blockchain technology, such as cost-effectiveness, accelerated transactions, and superior security.
  4. πŸš€ Crowdfunding / Fundraising Platform: Are you up for the challenge of building a dynamic platform that facilitates aspiring founders to initiate public fundraisers post a thorough KYC process? The platform should oversee secure transactions and creatively incentivize contributors with rewards proportional to their contributions. Give special consideration to the KYC process, user interface, and the architecture of the smart contract managing funds.
  5. 🎟️ Token Gated Attendance Activities: Here's an exciting one: Develop a system that verifies event attendance based on token ownership. Strive to build a secure, user-friendly platform that can authenticate token holders and accord them access to designated events or activities.

🌈 Freestyle: Feel free to come up with your own ideas and concepts that can leverage the capabilities of the XDC Network. We welcome all your creative and innovative solutions!
