2. Chess game where all games happen on the chain and use on chain state to rank the players
3. Use NEAR with IPFS to make a server-less app. For example, an Instagram app that stores content on IPFS.
4. Multiplayer game (here are the docs on how to build it - https://docs.nearprotocol.com/#/tutorials/multiplayergame)
5. Identity where users are in control of it

Projects solving this challenge

UrgentBlood.org

UrgentBlood.org connects blood donors with patients in need of urgent donations. Donors register by verifying their identity with DocuSign Phone Authentication, certifying their eligibility to donate with DocuSign Embedded Signing and Custom Branding, and sharing their location into a blockchain-backed database using NEAR. Medical professionals can then log in with a Yubikey OTP to locate eligible donors within a certain range of the hospital's geofence, and even provide directions.

Genie - Random Acts of Kindness

We've created a system that allows you to change the game, providing offline targeted marketing, by what we call Random Acts of Kindness.once your campaign goes live, that's when the magic happens: our low-cost hardware, installed in hundreds of stores uses Clarif.ai to identify every purchasing customer, run them through all the active campaign demographics. The result is that, if you're in the targeted group, and have a little luck, Netflix might just pay for your coffee one day

Influencer AI

Influence AI allows anyone to easily become an influencer. Additionally, brands can easily identify and develop an influencer network. Using DocuSign, we showcase our machine learning-enabled contract signing. Influencer AI automatically detects an existing influencer relationship using Clarifai, and identifies the need for legal documentation to be drafted between influencer and brand. The tokenization of the image on the Near protocol allows control of the licensing of the IP.

Hack Squad

Hack Squad is a decentralized hackathon-style challenge platform that programmatically vets technologists and matches them to your specific challenge's needs. We make it easy to get the right innovators and technologists immersed into your technology continuously.
