Anyone can participate in the Idea-Thon – no developer experience required. In this thread, we share an overview of Pebble and step-by-step instructions to join the Idea-Thon.


Pebble: A New Standard for Trust

Pebble is a first-of-its-kind smart device that combines tamper-proof hardware and tamper-proof software to establish a new standard for trust. Pebble captures and cryptographically signs real world data (GPS, climate, motion, light) using a built-in secure element, similar to the chips used in smartphones for FaceID and crypto hardware wallets for private keys. The result? All data generated by Pebble is 100% verifiable and traceable by anyone: trusted data from trusted devices to fuel trusted applications.

A universe of new use cases centered around verifiability/trust will be enabled by Pebble – we can’t wait to hear your world-changing ideas!


Idea-Thon Prizes

  • Top 5: $200 in IOTX each
  • Top 25: Ucam or $50 in IOTX (your choice)
  • All participants: exclusive Idea-Thon NFT
