The decentralized web needs a decentralized filesystem.
The future is web3: a digital world that is censorship-resistant,
decentralized, and trustless. A web where users control their own
data and identity.
HackFS is an ETHGlobal hackathon
focused on building the foundation for that world. We've partnered
with Protocol Labs - the
organization building Filecoin and IPFS - to run an event centered
on dapps, web3, decentralized storage, and everything in between.
We're also working with partners across the Ethereum and Filecoin
ecosystems to ensure that hackers have a wide variety of composable
technologies to use to build their hacks.
At ETHGlobal, we're building on the success of
HackMoney, our recent DeFi
hackathon that spawned
120 projects. Like that event, HackFS will offer the highest caliber
white-glove experience for developers, as they identify problems to
work on, design solutions, build their hack, and present it to
judges and eventually the whole web3 community.
