Build the unimaginable
In the nature 2.0 track inspiring unimaginable non-human narratives will be combined with an exploration of those new and buildable digital entities when we use the possibilities of blockchain, artificial intelligence and autonomous assets to create open source ecosystems.

THE CHALLENGE

Which elements of our day2day life that we deem normal are actually very crazy? And which solutions, that seem crazy can be built, because the only hurdle to pass proves to be our current human narrative, not technology. Disruption before it happens is always a crazy: We want you to look for the crazy, the ODD in odyssey.

Build the unimaginable.

8.7 million animal species have working ecosystems to fulfill their basic needs like housing, eating, transportation, energy… None of these ecosystems are based on ownership, identity like we use it, or on money. Some of them are not even based on scarcity, but on cooperation resulting in abundant resources. For free. That is unimaginable and crazy for one species, us humans, while a lot of other species are living it.

BUILD A COMMONSE, AN ECOSYSTEM TOWARDS ABUNDANCE OR AN OWNERLESS ECOSYSTEM.

When you choose to enter this challenge, your world will never be the same.

We invite you to rethink the system. Check out the dedicated Nature2.ooo website to find resources to build the solutions of tomorrow.

A number of friends popped up that have inspiring challenges that could be topics for teams to work on. If you want to accelerate your solution already before the hackathon, these communities are waiting for you to join and assist you on your quest.

Please note: Nature 2.0 hosts 10 teams for its 1 challenge and a total cash reward of 20.000 euro.

nature2.0 - unimaginable
The unimaginable
You start your journey by unveiling the crazy in day to day live.
Challenging the elements and interactions of value chains that only make sense from a profit point of view, but validated through an engineering lens are very crappy.
the buildable generic
The buildable
We ask you to explore the possibilities of blockchain, artificial intelligence and autonomous assets to create open source ecosystems. Think developing DAO’s, AI-DAO’s, digital twins, autonomous assets (like self-driving cars), user curated lists and distributed market places for sensor & ai-data and AI algorithms, to for instance

DOMAIN EXPERTS PRESENT AT THE HACKATHON

We want you to build a community before, during & after the hackathon and will help you with a dedicated video and graphic facilitation/artwork team.

We will also do a Nature2.0 Quickscan at the Getting Ready Conference on March 13.

 During the Hackathon you will have access to:  Duinn-technology Radar & research/ number-chrunching for  teams, TEDx pitchcoach, Oceanprotocol, SingularityNet, IOT, Biomimicry specialists 

TOOLBOX

We explored a 3 layer approach of new building blocks in 3 meetups in Berlin and Amsterdam.

Layer 1: Plugged in

(visit nature2.ooo soon)

Layer 2: Hyvemind

Layer 3: Self-actualisation

(join the event on Jan 16th)

Please find the video, presentation, opensource code, test nets of application shared during sessions will be available soon on nature2.ooo > Buildable

TYPE OF TEAM ELIGIBLE TO APPLY

We are looking for a mix of teams, from pre-startups to corporate, to get creative ideas and viable solutions.

Everybody is welcomed to join the challenge.

Meet our teams of last year to get some impressions of their nature and their journeys:

Kryha, Oddbot, Team Blocktrain, Team Elkrem, Team 8D, Team LiftOff, OneUp, Team WeQuest, Cool Runnings.

PROTOCOL OR
APPLICATION SOLUTION?

We are searching for both protocol and application solutions.

OPEN SOURCE OR PROPRIETARY

Open source (GPL /A-GPl/  CC4.0 NC BY SA)
Check out Gilles Gravier (Wipro) explaining what is open source and which model to use.

Motivation

We want to identity and expose disruption before it happens, to understand and use it beneficial for society.

Ambition and goals

Nature 2.0 aims for an ownerless layer of natural resources

and intelligent agents that promote sustainable public utilities

in a world of abundance.

Track record in innovation and working to accelerate with teams/companies

The winner of last years-Track, Kryha.io, is now working with Ocean and MIT on their winning solution, named grex.ai. Grex is a solution that works as a commons, an ownerless a service to the world.

CONSORTIUM

Current consortium.
Ocean Protocol
SingularityNet
IOTA

Welcoming.
Anybody that is beneficial for society, interested in critical infrastructures, focuses on basic needs as commons.
Every entity working on the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN
VC for good.

 

INCUBATION

What does the partner offer. Work & invest in the building of community/commons. Working on ecosystems of critical infrastructure entities to whom your work is relevant. Before, during and after hackathon, we’ll co-create with you on funding strategies for commons.

What do consortium partners offer. Cutting edge technology, (blockchain/AI). Intrinsic motivation to create a better world.
