An NFT is a digital asset that represents real-world objects like art, music, in-game items and videos. They are bought and sold online, frequently with cryptocurrency, and they are generally encoded with the same underlying software as many cryptos.
Each NFT has a digital signature that makes it impossible for NFTs to be exchanged for or equal to one another (hence, non-fungible). One NBA Top Shot clip, for example, is not equal to EVERYDAYS simply because they’re both NFTs. (One NBA Top Shot clip isn’t even necessarily equal to another NBA Top Shot clip, for that matter.

Time Series: Predict NFT series pricing - Based on Rarity, Traits, Liquidity and General Market Dynamics of NFT series
The first part of the case has two main directions:
- The market price of a unique NFT is not easily observable, can you predict it?
- The illiquid and sporadic NFT market makes forced liquidations near impossible (with some exceptions).
The second part of the case is dedicated to image recognition:
- Connect a pre-defined list of NFT Twitter profile pictures to the relevant collection to which they belong
- Find the Collection, Ownership, History of the Token and how it reflects the price of the whole series

The Datathon is a weekend-long online competition where people from around the world are challenged to work on a real-world business case from different areas of Machine Learning, AI, and Data Science.
The teams have 48 hours to come up with a solution to a real business challenge based on the provided datasets by data-driven companies.
The Datathon is held online via the Data Science Society's platform. There will be also several locations worldwide where the most enthusiastic teams can gather for the onsite Hackathon experience and coding atmosphere.
The solutions will be evaluated by our jury - a group of experienced professionals , who will review and evaluate the provided solutions from the participants. Results will be announced as per the Agenda for the event.
Data Science Society is open-source community and all Datathon solutions will be publicly available afterwards for others to learn from and further improve the quallitiy of the developed models/algorithms.
The call for providing a data solution for Datathon 2022 ends on 17.04.2022.
