Notes Created By: LibertyBlock
This week we took a look at EOS Hackathon finalists Chesnut and All_ebt. The teams discussed their products, hackathon experience, and views on EOS.
About Team Chesnut (1:08)
A Chestnut account empowers users to set their own security parameters, including spending limits, white/blacklisted accounts, and time-based transaction limits. It is a multi-signature account that splits the required transaction authorization signatures between the user and a smart contract, which either approves or denies the request, based on predetermined user preferences.
EOS Issues that Need Addressing (9:45)
More community auditing and helping each other build out smart contracts would be helpful. Newer teams without connections and relationships will face challenges.
EOS.VC Experiences (11:50)
Telegram is an incredibly valuable tool for getting responses from high-ranking members. Another benefit is that the bear market creates more of a community around builders.
All_ebt Background (16:22)
All_ebt is a smart wallet for food stamps. Over 54 million Americans receiving SNAP (food stamp) benefits each year are excluded from e-commerce entirely. All_ebt is serving underbanked and low-income communities through their virtual ebt card.
All_ebt’s Current Status (27:36)
The first iteration of the product moves money from a physical ebt card into a virtual Stripe card. All_ebt is laser-focused on user growth. They’re working on a pilot program with Instacart and feedingamerica.org to help feed people on food stamps.
Ethernom created the world’s lowest power Biometric Smart Card on the market. The second version of the card will allow off-chain transactions, a compelling feature for unbanked people in developing economies.
Next Week’s Call
To be determined. Stay tuned for an announcement in the EOS Town Hall Telegram!
