Overview

Co-sponsor a hackathon with Arbitrum (leading EVM L2 ecosystem by transactions and TVL) to attract developers and entrepreneurial talent to SingularityNET and grow brand awareness. The Hackahton is CollabTech themed (encompasing solutions for governance, operations, community, social, growth, and contributor tooling), a market projected to $1,000bn by 2030 and with very high positive societal impact. The hackathon will be held primarily online, with a co-working session in Brussels during ETHcc (July), and is facilitated by RnDAO.

Proposal Description

How Our Project Will Contribute To The Growth Of The Decentralized AI Platform

    Great job curating this Daniel. However, I believe logistical challenges in coordinating the hackathon across different time zones and ensuring equal access and participation for all interested developers might be a consideration to factor into your grand scheme of things. Kind regards !

      Thanks, Clement. The Hackathon will be primarily async, except for a few "activation events" that will be recorded (e.g. talks with CollabTech experts) and the awards ceremony will unavoidably lead to a couple people having to do an early morning or late night. Given the limited resources, it's hard to cater to everyone, but we'll have customer support available for all regions (APAC, EMEA, and America) so people can participate from anywhere.We're already a team spread from America to Asia, so well versed in dealing with these challenges

    This Hackathon is essential

    I am interested and intend to follow this proposal closely because of its subject matter and the specific actions it intends to take. Hackathon competitions are not a new type of competition but are always necessary for every organization to select talented people in the field they desire. This proposal is no exception. I really hope that after the competition, people with enough ability and talent will be selected to contribute. I appreciate the usefulness.

    The results can be expected

    This hackathon targets a robust but under-tapped market. By attracting top talent and driving innovation, it contributes to SingularityNET's growth and differentiation. The partnership with RnDAO and Arbitrum helps share costs and multiply the exposure value of this initiative, providing good investment value. However, the project also faces a number of challenges, including attracting a sufficient number of skilled developers and ensuring diversity of proposed solutions. Additionally, the evaluation and selection of potential projects requires a transparent and fair process to optimize the results of the hackathon.

    Cosponsoring A Hackathon Together With Arbitrum

    The proposal will co-sponsor a hackathon with Arbitrum to attract developers and business talent to SingularityNET and increase brand awareness. This is a topic worthy of our attention. The project team has a quite specific plan and quite clear goals. However, I feel that information about members should be clearer to increase feasibility.

    Co-sponsored hackathon with good exposure

    I think hackathons are a great way to attract and guide new developers into the SNET ecosystem. The facts that it's co-sponsored and that it can tap into existing broadcast channels to reach a large audience are two significantly positive factors. The team seems highly experienced and capable of delivering the stated milestone goals.

    SNET can tap into a diverse pool of talents/ideas

    I am confident that cosponsoring a hackathon with Arbitrum presents an exciting opportunity to attract developers and entrepreneurial talents to SingularityNET while also growing brand awareness within the broader blockchain ecosystem.

    I would also opine that partnering with Arbitrum and hosting a hackathon focused on CollabTech solutions, will allow SingularityNET to tap into a diverse pool of talent and ideas, fostering the development of innovative tools and applications that benefit both platforms and their users. Additionally, the online nature of this hackathon, coupled with a co-working session during ETHcc in Brussels, will offer a global platform for participation and networking.

    Kudos !

    a co-sponsored hackathon with Arbitrum

    This proposal outlines a co-sponsored hackathon with Arbitrum to attract developers to SingularityNET's decentralized AI platform. Here's a breakdown of its strengths and weaknesses:

    Feasibility:

    • High: The concept leverages existing online hackathon platforms and established partnerships (RnDAO, Arbitrum).
      • Strengths: The hackathon builds on proven collaboration models and focuses on a timely theme (CollabTech).
      • Weaknesses: Conditional on approval of a parallel proposal by Arbitrum, introducing some uncertainty.

    Viability:

    • Moderate: Success depends on effective marketing, attracting high-quality participants, and integrating winning projects into the SingularityNET ecosystem.
      • Strengths: The proposal outlines clear goals (registrations, project submissions) and leverages partner networks for promotion.
      • Weaknesses: The proposal lacks details on the budget allocation and the strategy for post-hackathon engagement with winning projects.

    Desirability:

    • Moderate-High: For developers interested in CollabTech and DeFi (Arbitrum), this could be desirable.
      • Strengths: The proposal offers an opportunity to contribute to a growing field and potentially win prizes.
      • Weaknesses: The proposal needs to clearly articulate the value proposition for SingularityNET compared to other hackathons.

    Usefulness:

    • Moderate-High: The project has the potential to increase developer awareness and attract talent to SingularityNET, but its impact depends on effective execution and follow-up.
      • Strengths: The proposal focuses on a relevant theme (CollabTech) that aligns with SingularityNET's goals.
      • Weaknesses: The proposal lacks details on how the hackathon will specifically encourage the development of projects that integrate with SingularityNET's AI platform.

    Overall, this SingularityNET CollabTech Hackathon proposal has a good foundation, but focus on:

    • Securing Arbitrum Approval: Ensuring the parallel proposal with Arbitrum is approved to avoid project delays.
    • Marketing Strategy: Developing a comprehensive marketing strategy to reach the target developer audience effectively.
    • Post-Hackathon Engagement: Creating a clear plan to engage with winning projects and facilitate their integration with SingularityNET's platform.
    • Budget Allocation: Providing a detailed budget breakdown for marketing, prizes, and operational costs.
    • SingularityNET Integration Focus: Clearly highlighting how the hackathon will encourage projects that leverage SingularityNET's AI capabilities.

    By addressing these considerations, this SingularityNET CollabTech Hackathon can become a successful initiative to attract developers and grow the SingularityNET ecosystem.

    Here are some strengths of this project:

    • Focuses on a trending theme (CollabTech) relevant to the DeFi space (Arbitrum).
    • Leverages established partnerships (RnDAO, Arbitrum) for wider reach and expertise.
    • Outlines clear goals for attracting developers and project submissions.

    Hackathon is important for an ecosystem!

    1. Feasibility

    To implement this proposal, I believe that all of the content included in the description seem to be possible as the hackathon aims on a specific group of participants which are from the RnDao and the Arbitrum, with an reasonable goals, for example, 100 developers, and entrepreneurs or 20 project submissions.

    1. Viability

    Talking about the capability from the team behind this proposal, I could say that they are all experienced blockchain builders as well as entrepreneurs who got above 10 years of working and investing in technology. Moreover, they have ben building the RnDao which is a venture investing in new projects in web3.0, which has already shown their capability.

    Desirability

    For this part, it is understanable to say that hackathon is really important in any blockchain ecosystem, therefore, operating a hackathon on a project is not a bad idea and the demands to improve the privacy for web3 projects are really high.

    Usefulness

    It is clear that with this hackathon, the SingularityNet ecosystem could be able to attract more developers and builders coming from Arbitrum joining and building on our landscape, hence, be able to construct a better infrastructure as well. There is not much, I would say no hackathon has ever be implemented on SingularityNet ecosystem, therefore, the team has a really big space to grow this project as this field is not really competitive.
