1. Overview

In February of this year, we put out the call for our first ever Ethereum Developer Survey. While there have been many smaller case studies, we believe this is the most comprehensive survey of the Ethereum developer community to date.

We were fortunate to have 723 developers respond — a huge thanks to…


A hackathon and weekly Summits throughout October

At the beginning of October, we invited the Ethereum community to join us at ETHOnline, ETHGlobal’s largest event of 2020.

Now that the month has concluded, we can say it was amazing to see the community participate throughout the month. ETHOnline was an event completely different from anything we’ve done before, made successful by the wholehearted support by the Ethereum community.

Read on for summaries of the Summits, Hackathon, and more on what the ETHGlobal team will be bringing the community next.

ETHOnline Summits

This was a series of weekly summits held every Friday that…


Wrapping up a notable month with ETHGlobal & Protocol Labs.

This July, we partnered up with Protocol Labs to run an event centered on dapps, web3, decentralized storage, and everything in between. Workshops, AMA Talks, Hack Feedback Sessions and Sponsor Office Hours are a few aspects which contributed to a successful month at HackFS.

Here are a few interesting metrics:

  • 470 hackers
  • 134 projects submitted
  • 50 countries
  • 19 timezones
  • 52 events

We were blown away by the calibre of projects we received as well as the commitment of our hackers, mentors, sponsors and everyone else involved. …


A summary of ETHGlobal’s first online, long-form event

It’s been a few weeks since the HackMoney Finale and we are still taking it all in. As ETHGlobal’s first online, long-form event, we were entering into a new environment at the same time as hackers. Suffice it to say, HackMoney blew past our expectations. Here are some high level metrics:

  • > 300 hackers submitted projects
  • 65 countries were represented in hacker applications
  • 120 projects were submitted (check out every project in the the HackMoney Showcase)

HackMoney was only possible with the support of an amazing group of elite sponsors. They make…


tl;dr

  • HackMoney is ETHGlobal’s first online DeFi hackathon, starting April 24
  • Applications close on April 19th, apply here to secure your place!
  • HackMoney is a white glove developer experience to help you build high quality projects that you can keep working on after the hackathon

We’ve spent the last few months talking to our users: hackers, sponsors, experts, and others across the Ethereum community.

After a few iterations, we think we have a recipe for an incredible online experience that captures some of the magic of ETHGlobal’s in-person hackathons, while taking advantage of the unique benefits of a remote multi-week event.
