Hackathon on Blockchain data, Social Media and Text Analysis
Have you ever thought that you can change our understanding of the world of economy? Understand how people take decisions, and why they live the way they do it? See how it combines psychology, phylosophy and information flows?
Blockchain gives us a chance. In the open world, we are here to analyze pricing, onchain data, news flows combined, based on an introduction to mass psychology from international cryptoassets analysis startup.
You will be supported by an introduction from international blockchain startup, and lectures from Sberbank, HSE, Mail.ru, as well as a colocated scientific Data Science conference. With professional facilitation, you will be able to create your dream team to start changing the world.
Three days of challenge. Three days of insights. You in the center.
Register to be here on 5-7 July, 2018.
You will have datasets including prepared historical data on:
- Pricing and volumes over 2 months
- Onchain transactions, raw and aggregates
- News and discussions (twitter, chats, reddit) - around 3 mln messages
Several times during the hackathon, we will publish more data for your consideration.
After 48 hours, coffee and snacks, your solutions will be expected to answer (one of the) following questions:
- How pricing/volumes react to discussions in chats, telegram, social media - sentiment, volumes, etc. Seek for correlation.
- Wallets that start the market rise/fall - do they exist and how to find them
- How trends spread over the news sources, wallets and prices.
- Classification / map of chats. How people behave - experts, newbies, etc. What content is being published. How channels evolve over time.
- Story of a coin. Automatically aggregated story of coin, including pricing, events, sentiment, etc.
There will also be several special (smaller) prizes for best visualization, best data cleanup, or other useful results not falling directly under the nominations.
