There are currently lots of issues around data security, privacy, and cybersecurity leaks.

How can we build good software to ensure we handle sensitive data in a manner that prevents misuse?
How can we stop data breaches and cybersecurity leaks?
You can use GitHub Copilot to help you build your solution.

Tech Stack: GitHub Copilot

You can build whatever solution you like, solving whatever problem. We want to see how to handle personal information in the solution you’ve built. Do you handle personal information in a way that helps prevent the misuse of data? Do you store personal information unnecessarily? We want to see that whatever solution you’ve built is secure and not easily hacked. Hint, you can use GitHub Copilot to help you build tests.

Circle: Problem statement 2 - Build Next-Gen Apps with Novel Use Cases

Prize: 1000 USDC or $900 USD

Problem statement 2: Best Application using AI and blockchain to build an application that is not a part of the 3 above solutions. We are offering a bounty choice of either 1,000 USDC (1 USDC = 1 USD) or $900 USD. We are offering a slightly larger payout if you choose to receive funds in USDC.

🏆 Best Applications for Emerging Use Cases
Build an application (mobile or web app) that focuses on innovative solutions with novel and bespoke use cases.

Examples may include the following;
– Use blockchain in an AI use case around payments for inferences or compute. Extra points for developing AI agents that can bank themselves by receiving USDC for tasks they perform, and spending USDC on services or other AI agents to complete more tasks. –
– A blockchain-based social platform that also leverages AI, empowering secure transactions and sustainable growth through trusted identities and digital content creation.
– A creator-focused platform that utilises AI, USDC and smart contracts for content production, distribution, and monetisation with full creator control and ownership.
– A DeFi application that leverages AI and CCTP for improved interoperability, enabling cross-chain payments and swaps with enhanced security and liquidity.
– Gaming applications

Recommended Developer Tools: USDC, CCTP, Programmable Wallets, Smart Contract Platform, Gas Station, Azure OpenAI, Azure Speech.

Submission Guidelines:
Please make sure to include the following within your submission:

1. Functional MVP – The submission is a fully functional Minimum Viable Product (MVP) covering any of the abovementioned criteria.

Deliverables:
– Presentation
– Video demo
– Testable code
– Deployed URL or Mobile application
– Survey submission by following the link here: https://circlefinancial.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0dEUsoBDbEOsMOa

2. Development Process – The submission includes clear and comprehensive documentation of the development process, including gists, sketches, discussions, and any issues encountered. Ensure the commit history demonstrates a steady and iterative development approach, not just one large pull request.

3. Integration Challenges/Feedback: The submission meticulously details any integration challenges with the provided API and documentation and the adept use of GitHub Issues to document problems and their resolutions extensively. We look forward to seeing documented feedback around how the solution and the corresponding resources can be improved and what you’d like to see to enhance your use case’s building.

4. Presentation and Documentation: The submission’s presentation and video detail its features and the integration of the programmable wallets API, while its well-structured documentation, including code comments, simplifies understanding and further development.
