Next Stop: Berlin! Meet the Akropolis team at the Berlin Blockchain Week
We’ve just wrapped up our Asian tour and are already ready for the next big thing! Our bags are packed, and we’re heading over to Berlin — our agendas are packed and we are looking forward to meeting fellow projects, coders and community members.
If you happen to be in Berlin for blockchain week and are interested in our product or learning more on the intersection between informal economies and blockchain, governance, DAOs or DeFi, hit us up at email@example.com or just write to @Sidzuka in Telegram!
First off, on August 18th at the awesome Funkhaus Berlin, our CTO Alex Maz and our dev Alex Gnat will be presenting Polkahub, our project proposing a PaaS-like service for easy node deployment and maintenance in Polkadot, at DOTCon, the one-stop-shop mini-conference for all things Polkadot Network.

Our CEO & Founder Ana will be speaking at the ETHBerlinZwei conference on August 21st in the auditorium opposite to Dappcon’s at the Technical University of Berlin — for a realistic take on what goes on in the ecosystem: DAOs, we started nothing: lessons for DAO design and governance from co-operatives and mutuals throughout centuries of collaboration.
ETHBerlinZwei is a conference and hackathon by the Department of Decentralization, headed by our comms advisor María Paula, and the essence of their conference is offering a much-needed reality check to the community, mixed with a poignant sense of humor, real-world awareness, and memes.
Another event we are looking forward to is Dappcon. Ana will be speaking here on August 22nd, presenting Decoupling from the Legacy Financial System: benefits from Finance-oriented DAOs. This talk will walk users through all the issues identified by Akropolis in the legacy financial system, and how introducing blockchain solutions and cryptocurrencies can help users regaining control of their finances to mitigate the impact of financial crises in the lives of individuals.
But that’s not all — we’ll prove our serious skin in the game for ETHBerlinZwei, where our tech team will be hacking the nights away. After winning the Coinlist&0x hackathon with C2FC, we were hungry for more. The tech team loves hackathons, challenges, and building under pressure — so ETHBerlinZwei will be our next challenge.
So, one more time — if you are in Berlin, reach out. We surely have something to share with you. And for the wider community — root for the Akropolis Hacking Team!
