Decentralization is underway. In the coming years, emerging blockchain technologies (like Ethereum) will aid in distributing power from the center to the edges of our communities. This movement could bring about the most significant technological and social advancements since the advent of the internet. You can be a part of this change at ETHBuenosAires.
ETHBuenosAires is welcoming those who want to support and build the decentralized future. The Hackathon is an opportunity to work alongside the developers, thought leaders, advisers, and companies who are making the infrastructure and applications that will power the future.

Maker is thrilled to be sponsoring ETH Buenos Aires (May 25-28) and we are offering a prize for the best project that integrates Dai (our stablecoin) or CDP’s into their product. A total of up to 5 MKR will be awarded to the team that best utilizes Dai in their application. We are looking for innovative use cases and solid MVP’s. Hackers also have the opportunity to receive additional MKR for continuing to work on their Dai project after ETHBuenosAires. We will reach out to candidate projects after the hackathon if we find some that fit the criteria of the core Maker team.
Hackathon Project Ideas
--Design an interface that distills out the complexity of the dai frontend to empower a specific use case of the platform (bonus points if you use a proxy contract.)
--Create a frontend for decentralized ETH exposure using CDP’s.
--Build a slick wallet for sending and storing Dai.
--Build a frontend for loan mechanics.
The MKR will be awarded by a panel of judges that includes Matt Richards, Mariano Conti and Gonzalo Balabasquer. We will be looking for creative use cases and compelling product visions.
We would like to offer 2 bounties (total 1.66675 ETH) to work on plugins for Embark. Embark is all about simplicity and extensibility. There are already helpful pre-existing plugins for babel, webpack and a number of other JS build tools. Hackers can easily write their own plugins to suit their needs and share them with the whole community.
Suggested ideas: Fuzz testing (https://github.com/trailofbits/echidna) and a pile of others: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cWzEwROXAqWjHJNm7P0PNC9WaYiGb-yhzHWIsU8xENw
