[500 DAI x 3] Blockchain is a Fad Hack
near, ethereum, privacy
### Blockchain is a Fad Hack
### Prize Bounty
Three prizes worth 500 DAI each
### Challenge Description
Both cryptocurrency and blockchain have excited some of the world’s smartest people since before the now famous bitcoin whitepaper was announced. But so far, it seems that blockchain hasn’t delivered on the promise of mass adoption. Could it be just a fad that goes the way so many before it? Or is it truly a groundbreaking innovation? It’s up to you to decide!
Two parallel universes are splitting off from this one. This is where you pick which future you believe in!
**The Light Timeline** - blockchain changes the world of privacy: The most useful blockchain hack. This is something like a financial product (e.g. send transactions in a way that doesn't expose your identity”) a new digital currency that has some unique value (you can only spend it on books?) or maybe you want to create secure online voting. This challenge is for you to shine while you save the world! (And you get that cash money if you win.)
**The Dark Timeline** - blockchain for privacy is a fad: The most useless blockchain hack. We want to see the funniest and faddiest blockchain apps. If you want to build an ICO for cats, Dogecoin V2, TikTok-but-for-some-reason-its-on-blockchain... well you get it! If you make us laugh AND your useless hack achieves a useless goal (it’s got to actually do something like protect your cats data when you post photos of it) we give you cash money! Turn this hackathon into a wackathon for the memes.
**Any ol’ Hack:** If you just want to do your thing and learn about blockchain, or use our simple account system with whatever you build, we will cheer you on! You can get this prize just for using one of our libraries in your hack.
### Submission deadline
