Dynamics by Ryan.R
Data Processing/Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
Technology Background of Applicant
Databases / Basic HTML+JS
Dynamics is a cross platform NFT dApp to be integrated into corporate ERP databases. Data will be validated, creating an NFT certificate, and ss this is a third party validation, it allows valid, accurate proof of data between any platform, removing technology barriers and validating the process of data between companies and customers.
“As an ERP consultant, I have been thinking about building a tool like this for two years now and spoken with clients who would be interested in such a tool. While the NFT aspect would be new, the core concepts would be the same: How can we facilitate moving authenticated data electronically directly between two companies in a fast, automated way while also maintaining validity, immutability and authenticity? The goal is to allocated NFT certificates to valid data being passed between companies and different platforms (Oracle to MicroSoft for example”
Geo-Cats — A Game of Geocaching by Kurt
Technology Background of Applicant
Is able to create a website with HTML and basic frameworks.
Geocats intends to leverage blockchain technology by allowing players to swap non-fungible tokens with one another in a Geocache virtual world. NFT rewards and treasures encourage players to work together to solve puzzles as well as allowing them to own whatever they find for themselves.
“The idea is simple, get out in nature and find a hidden treasure. Each digital Geocache is cleverly hidden somewhere on your map. If you are lucky enough to find one, you can sign your name in the guestbook and get awesome NFT’s for your efforts! If you are skilled enough to join the ranks of the Geocats, you will have admittance to the Geolodge and GeoGarden. These central hubs are welcome refuge from the elements, and serve to connect cats from all across the globe.”
BlockIP by RED
An IP management system where digital documents are converted into an NFT that can be leased or sold to various users for commercial purposes. As this leasing is done using blockchain technology, the owners of each lease is verifiable and traceable.
“This is an application for content creators to distribute their memes/pictures/photos while being able to prove who has the rights to use it. (Think photographers/instagram meme pages etc…). They would be able to own the original NFT but would have the ability to sell a duplicate of the NFT or even lease it, if they choose to do so, for distribution purposes. That way the original creator has a limited chance to get ripped off and they would be able to prove it if they did. Then from there twitter/reddit etc through an api would be able to allow or disallow based on If you had the IP rights to use that photo etc.”
Planet B by Tobias
An educational card-collectible game using NFT cards centered around sustainability. The game consensus is you can either save or destroy the planet while facing your opponent and learn about Sustainable Development Goals SDGs while levelling up. Players learn which products or activities are harmful to the environment and which are beneficial to it while playing.
“There are 3 types of cards: companies, items and activities. Company cards, for example, have attributes such as emissions, water consumption etc and can upgrade by implementing ‘Save the Planet’ cards which give “Blockchain integration: Impact: +3 Supply Chain Resilience (+1 Transparency)” for example. Or in the case of the “Destroy the Planet” version an upgrade would be: Bribe:Impact: +5 Corruption/Bribery” . Item cards behave similarly with same attributes (emissions etc): cars, mobile phones and so on as to activity cards such as “Riding your bike to work” or “Leave trash on sidewalk”. The goals of all these cards lead to either saving or destroying the planet. I would also like to donate profits made from this dApp to environment charities.”
