Cleaning your room, never gave you any benefits, until now! Also Blockchain and Machine Learning are taking over the world by storm. Why not use the new technologies for something that'll make our parents happy? Clean your room and earn cryptocurrency!
What it does
TiREN rewards REN token to people to clean their room. It uses a machine learning model to take two pictures of a room :-
- A messy room.
- A clean room.
When the machine learning model evaluates that the same room was cleaned, it rewards REN tokens based on how much work would've been needed. REN token can be swapped for ETH on Uniswap.
How we built it
The very first step was to build a model that would help us in classifying whether a room is clean or not. For that we created an image classification model using CNNs using Keras and Tensorflow which helped us in classifying whether a room is clean or not.
Simultaneously we made our cryptocurrency the REN ERC20 token. The token was then deployed to a Ropsten testnet and a Uniswap pool was created to trade REN for ETH.
We then went on to make the main part of the project i.e. the mobile application. We built the app using React Native and then connected both the model and the app in order to make a complete working product.
Challenges we ran into
- Working with React Native for the first time was a major headache!
- Creating a smart contract to reward REN token based on whether the room is clean or not was very challenging logically.
- Connecting the ML model with the app.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Working with React Native for the first time.
- Creating and deploying our own cryptocurrency.
What we learned
- How to make a mobile app.
- Using web3 technology in a real world app.
What's next for TiREN
- The plan is to give the REN coins more concrete value.
- Adding more tasks than just cleaning the room like studying, working out etc.
