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!
- Top 5: $200 in IOTX each
- Top 25: Ucam or $50 in IOTX (your choice)
- All participants: exclusive Idea-Thon NFT
The theme of this Idea-Thon is “Closing Trust Gaps in the Real World” – we want to hear how YOU would use Pebble to build use cases that make our world a more trusted place.
- Review the Idea-Thon Video Guide – it includes a Pebble overview, use case design tutorial, and several example use cases. A must watch!
- Submit your use case idea via Google Form with the following:
a. Describe the “trust gap” your idea addresses – why is it important for you and society?
b. How does your idea solve some or all of the “trust gap” you chose?
c. Include a visual reference that explains or supports your idea
d. Submit any relevant links/articles that explain the “trust gap” (optional)
- That’s it! Reach out to us on IoTeX Telegram with any questions, good luck!Remember the best use cases are simple yet impactful.
