A Virtual Hackathon to Protect Your Privacy

The Protecting Privacy Virtual Hackathon invites hackers to interact with and build on a wide range of privacy-focused projects to help users protect themselves, their data, and their money in the face of increasing surveillance by both state and corporate actors. 

Gitcoin fundamentally believes that individuals should have control over their data and their actions online, and robust privacy tools are critical for making this a reality. To get the future we want, we need user-oriented privacy and authentic collaboration between organizations who care about these rights. 

Join to interact and team up with other like-minded developers. Join to attend educational workshops and webinars from leading companies in the Web3 & privacy ecosystem. And of course, join to build awesome projects, earn crypto prizes, and build your resume!

Sponsors include Ocean Protocol, Keep Network, Status, MakerDAO, Electric Coin Company, NuCypher, Raiden, Tor, and NEAR Protocol.

Protect your data: Let’s work together to make sure users can protect themselves and their data online.
