Data DAO Hackathon
FIL Toronto Summit will be a collaborative three-day event collectively hosted by Filecoin Foundation, Orbit, and FilSwan. There will be various sessions including meetups, workshops, keynotes, a hackathon, cocktail, and more throughout the summit. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect with a growing and vibrant community of web3 enthusiasts, build projects that can grow into the next big start-up, acquire new skills and win attractive prizes to accelerate your professional and personal growth, and access a broad range of follow-on opportunities
The summit is aimed at bringing together 100+ Web 3 users, educating and inspiring the next generation of Web3 builders. We will empower developers and entrepreneurs to solve significant problems, ship innovative applications and shape a more decentralized, robust, and secure web.
All web3 developers, builders, designers, and individuals with expertise and interest in cross-chain storage solutions, smart-contract programming, compute-over-data, and data governance (data DAOs) are welcome to join!

Hackers around the world are invited to join the hackathon and contribute to the following tracks to win prizes. Hackathon starts August 15th, 2022 EDT, and submission is due on 22:00 PM September 11th, 2022 EDT
The Interplanetary Filesystem (IPFS) is a peer-to-peer network and protocol designed to make the web faster, safer, and more open. Filecoin, the world’s largest decentralized storage network, allows users to store, request, and transfer data via a verifiable marketplace.
How to start with Filecoin and IPFS: https://ecosystem-wg.notion.site/Getting-Started-With-IPFS-Filecoin-c00526cf97ba4087ba5c3ad5f5337a58
Multi-Chain Storage (MCS: https://mcs.filswan.com) is a smart-contract-based cross-chain storage gateway that is integrated with oracle technology. It accelerates the mass adoption of decentralized storage by bridging multiple blockchain networks.
Computing over data is the key scenario of 1PFS/Filecoin Network. This track is to encourage developers to develop apps based on data stored on Filecoin. Some example ideas can be climate data analysis, New York subway data, health data or other scientific data.
Forest is the rust node for the Filecoin network. The Forest team has put together some good first issues as bounties for the hackers at FILToronto. In order to solve these bugs/bounties you will need to have an understanding of the Filecoin protocol, some level of proficiency in rust programming language, and be able to install, run and debug with the Forest client.This hackathon prize is for the individual(s) who solves the most bounties/bugs correctly. This will be submitted directly to the Forest repository as draft PRs.
The Twitter community will be able to share their favourite submissions in the hackathon! Community Track aims to judge projects based on community engagement and project quality.
