CryptoChicks are proud to announce XYO, the world’s first geospatial blockchain oracle network, as lead sponsor of the CryptoChicks 2019 Toronto Hackathon & Conference
Toronto, ON, April 19, 2019 – Canadian based non-profit education hub CryptoChicks is proud to partner with XYO, the geospatial cryptonetwork, for the 2019 Toronto Hackathon – Blockchain & AI Conference taking place Downtown Toronto May 31 to June 2nd at RBC Waterpark Place, one of the world’s first high-tech ‘Internet of Everything’ innovation centre located downtown Toronto.
Hackathons bring inspiring visionaries together to learn in a positive and creative environment, meet new friends, make valuable business connections while working on new blockchain/AI development projects. XYO is the industry’s leading geospatial blockchain network backed by cryptography, adds a rich informative data layer to the conference conversation and is focused on driving cutting-edge advancements in IoT data-based distributed oracle technology, which will be key for the global adoption of smart contracts.
The XYO Challenge
The XYO app runs on smartphones and IoT sensors with the goal of implementing a Proof of interaction protocol which can be used to identify and verify who interacted with whom, where specific interactions happened, and under which physical conditions. XYO’s blockchain protocol generates high-certainty and tamper-evident data sets for IoT Management or Smart Contract Platform via various APIs. With the XYO network now live, the team wants to see what the community can build with simple consensus smart contracts and new, updated XYO nodes.
There are two open development challenges currently being finalized, with no restrictions as to how XYO technology is integrated into the Dapps participants will create. The XYO team wants to see what participants can do with location data certainty. To be successful with the challenge, teams will use the XYO simple consensus smart contracts (SCSC) Library, at least one XYO archivist and one XYO diviner.
There are some useful tools that can be used to connect with and visualize the XYO network:
