Working with experienced workers from the refugee field we realized how crucial the problem of building a secure identity is for refugees.
What it does
It's a secure place on blockchain where a refugee can collect identity data and get it verified by trusted people during her journey.
How I built it
We used Syncano.
Challenges I ran into
Time constraints and managing to narrow down on one of all those problems a refugee faces.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
That we were able to work with people we had never worked with before and that we were able to have fun for 36 hours.
What I learned
Learned a lot about blockchain and the difficulties of refugees and displaced people.
What's next for Digital Grab Bag
We will release it as an open-source project.
