The OpenData Community was started by Gitcoin and grew out of an Open Data hackathon on this platform in October of 2022. The mission of the OpenData Community is to defend web3 by resisting Sybil attacks and by supporting data decentralization.
Join us in the OpenData Discord to discuss all things grants, hacks, and more!

The January 2023 DataBuilders hackathon builds on the success of the October 2022 Open Data Science hackathon, organized by Gitcoin.
Data analysts and data scientists, software developers, and DevRel contributors are all well suited for the different bounties and contests of this hackathon.
Data scientists may find most interesting the exploratory data analysis of the hackathon. Software developers might be attracted to the packaging of these insights into Legos and the development of a useful dashboard. DevRel professionals might thrive in contributing answers to FAQs and other materials.
Across all of the bounties, contestants will be rewarded for their documented use of decentralized data infrastructure and tools, including those listed on the OpenData Community Landscape.
We are excited to kick off 2023 with what we are calling a “Data Builder Hackathon.” This hackathon will build off of the success of the inaugural hackathon and will continue to leverage the strategic support of Gitcoin.
There are two primary areas of focus for the OpenData Community - and for this Data Builders Hackathon:
In this hackathon, we are encouraging Data Builders to go deeper - and to take on new approaches to protecting web3 from Sybil attacks.
Much like the inaugural hackathon, contestants are provided with data sets from recent public good grants rounds - namely rounds being run by Unicef and Fantom on the Gitcoin Grants Protocol with assistance from Gitcoin. Contestants will be judged on their ability to perform exploratory data analysis, including the use of machine learning algorithms and statistics to discern suspicious patterns of behavior, and on the breadth of on and off-chain data they analyze.
In addition, in this hackathon, we have a section that rewards creators of so-called “legos.” These legos are discrete anti-Sybil scoring algorithms packaged for easy use. Legos can be tied together, with each lego tuned to identify possible Sybils based on a particular signal. There is also a contest to design a dashboard tying together some Legos!
The Data Builders hackathon will also reward contestants that use and contribute to projects that resist the recentralization at the data layer. These decentralizing solutions will be invited to the OpenData Community to share information about themselves and Data Builder hackathon contestants will be rewarded for their engagement. In particular, contestants can be rewarded for two types of engagement:
