The Web3Souls Hackathon in the Metaverse

From November 28 to December 5, the Web3Souls Hackathon will be held in the Metaverse. Its participants will get hands-on experience with the Decentralized Society concept (DeSoc).

About the Web3Souls Hackathon

This is an online hackathon dedicated to creating DeSoc projects, which will take place in the metaverse. The goal of the event is to gather projects, companies, investors, experts and developers in one place.

The hackathon program includes:

  • the opening ceremony in the Metaverse;
  • lectures from the WEB 3.0 experts;
  • meetups;
  • guided tours to the Metaverse;
  • community contests;
  • prizes and after-party in the Metaverse.

About DeSoc and SBT

Soulbound Tokens (SBT) are non-transferable tokens representing a person’s identity using blockchain technology. They allow individuals to verify all of their information — their education, work history, credit score, medical history, professional certifications, etc. The wallets that store or issue these tokens are called “Souls”. Souls and SBT will allow people to build a verifiable Web3 digital reputation based on their past actions and experiences.

Why DeSoc

Vitalik Buterin, along with his supporters, published a white paper entitled “Decentralized Society: Finding Web3’s Soul” early this May. Thus, Buterin invites each person to create a crypto-wallet, which marks this person and his “Soul”. As a result, a person’s reputation can be measured by SBT tokens and their transaction history.

About the Organizers

The Hackathon is being organized by researchers of the future from Maff Ecosystem. They publish articles about blockchain, create courses on NFTs and develop locations in the metaverse. They also organize hackathons that help specialists get practice in the latest tech trends. And the Web3Souls Hackathon is one of such hackathons.
