Setting the Stage for Web3 Adoption

“Ethereum and web3’s potential in 2024 is boundless. Confidence is evidently returning to the market as we’re seeing consistent growth in user activity and decisive actions by regulators and institutions. What we now need is a renewed focus on improving user experience (UX) and Ethereum’s original ethos which will pave the way for adoption to take place. By uniting the global Ethereum community, ETHDenver will be that meeting point for new ideas and standards to be set for the industry,” says John Paller, Founder and Executive Steward of ETHDenver.

ETHDenver aims to bring together thought leaders and innovators from various fields to discuss key topics shaping the future of the decentralized web. With engaging sessions on US crypto policy and regulations, DeFi lending, CeDeFi, value accrual, and data availability, attendees can gain valuable insights into the latest trends and developments.

🎤 Notable speakers include Hester Peirce (Commissioner of US Securities and Exchange Commission), Li Jin (Co-Founder and General Partner at Variant), Jesse Pollak (Creator of Base), Christine Kim (VP of Research of Galaxy), and Nick White (COO of Celestia).

The #BUIDLathon: Innovation and Collaboration

One of the highlights of ETHDenver is the #BUIDLathon, the industry’s largest hackathon. This year, it offers an impressive $1 million in Web3 bounties, giving #BUIDLers a chance to bring their unique ideas to life. The hackathon provides participants with nine days of round-the-clock support from peers, mentors, stewards, and sponsors. This collaborative environment encourages innovation and the creation of user-friendly products that will drive the adoption of web3 by millions.

💡 Fun fact: The term #BUIDL is a play on words, combining “build” and “HODL” (a term used in the crypto community to hold onto assets instead of selling them).

Back to Basics: Decentralization and User-Friendly Products

Vitalik Buterin’s recent blog post emphasized the importance of decentralization in the face of low adoption rates and the dominance of centralized platforms. ETHDenver seeks to address this challenge by providing a platform for developers to tackle technical issues while driving a meaningful shift towards creating user-friendly products.

“Innovations in Ethereum, including ENS, ERC-721 (enabling NFTs), The Merge, L2 solutions, and rollups will empower the next generation to transact on-chain. In the face of these advancements, the community should return to our roots by focusing on UX and inspiring new ideas at this year’s event. Our goal is for developments such as proto-danksharding, which have been conceived at ETHDenver, to play an important role in the adoption of web3 by millions,” highlights John Paller.

🚀 Exciting developments to look forward to: ENS (Ethereum Name Service) for user-friendly Ethereum addresses, ERC-721 for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), The Merge (Ethereum 2.0 upgrade), L2 solutions for scalability, and rollups for enhanced transaction speed.

Colorado: Leading the Way in Blockchain Integration

The state of Colorado has been at the forefront of blockchain integration, pioneering openness to the technology and creating a framework for technology-driven governance. Initiatives such as crypto tax payments and myColorado Digital ID have been introduced, while the Limited Cooperative Association (LCA) enables the establishment of legal infrastructure in the United States for DAOs. SporkDAO, the DAO that owns ETHDenver, has utilized the LCA’s legal framework, aligning with the ethos of DAO governance.

“Colorado is not just adopting blockchain technology; we are leading its integration into government, setting a model for others to follow. This is just the beginning of our journey towards a more secure, transparent, and efficient future,” says Gov. Jared Polis.

🌟 Notable participants from Colorado include Opolis, MetisDAO Foundation, and SevenX Ventures, who are presenting sponsors at ETHDenver.
