MLH 'I demo'd' tessalating hexagonal stickers and the unfortunate incident in which one of our team members lost all of his. A resulting desire to digitize them.
What it does
Hosts digital versions of these stickers on a blockchain accessible via something like a web service (which we also created for demo purposes using Wix and Wixcode), and also by command line.
How we built it
Back End: Blockchain, Multichain API, Python
Challenges we ran into
Submitting this form
Azure connection issues
WixCode version control
Integrating a complex custom API
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Building aesthetic front end in 24 hours
Finding a novel blockchain use case and implementing it
Writing bots that abstract the complexity of the blockchain for end users through Wix
What we learned
What's next for HexLedger
Pitching this concept to MLH, turning over an admin key for the blockchain, and seeing our concept implemented at future hackathons.
