Over the last couple of years, the Ethereum ecosystem has exploded in size and brought with it astounding levels of innovation, investment and developer mindshare. Every week there are exciting developments within the ecosystem — from the emergence of new ideas to better models for old ones.
Unfortunately, this explosion didn’t come without its own set of pain points. It’s becoming increasingly hard to keep track of everything happening within the Ethereum ecosystem and, by extension, very easy for people to become confused or disoriented.
EthHub is a fundamentals-focused, open source, community-driven Ethereum research and resources hub that aims to solve the issue of information asymmetry in the Ethereum ecosystem. We attempt to accomplish this goal through three main areas:
- Learn — Open source, easy to understand documentation
- Listen — Into the Ether podcast
- Read — EthHub Weekly newsletter
The EthHub Learn section provides all kinds of information about Ethereum — from learning how foundational concepts such as ‘gas’ works to simple breakdowns for Ethereum 2.0 (Serenity), including timelines, economic discussions and terms. Our aim is to make a resource where beginners can easily digest the various intricacies and mechanisms of Ethereum as well as a place where experienced users can come to get the most up to date information.
The EthHub Listen section provides weekly interviews with prominent members of the Ethereum community as well as weekly recaps of the EthHub Weekly newsletter. This will be a great way to stay up to date with active projects and news within the ecosystem.
The EthHub Read section features a weekly newsletter on everything happening inside the Ethereum space as well as important crypto news. This will be a great way to quickly catch up on everything happening without feeling overwhelmed in having to keep up with the many sources of information out there.
Currently, there are 4 people that can be considered “core contributors” to EthHub (and thus, have commit access to the repo). This includes co-founders Eric Conner and Anthony Sassano as well as Chaz Schmidt and Alexander Fisher — Ethereum community members that have helped with the creation and development of EthHub.
While we do not want to be gatekeepers of what content gets published on EthHub, commit access to the GitHub repo will only be given to community members that have proven themselves to be an invaluable asset to the growth and maintenance of EthHub.
Further to this, any and all changes to information displayed on the main documentation section of the EthHub website will be fully auditable through the repo. We invite everyone to browse the information that we’ve already collated, review it and submit a pull request if you feel you can add anything valuable!
EthHub Contribution Guidelines
We still have a lot of work to do to make EthHub the number one spot on the internet for people to learn about Ethereum. We encourage those working on projects in specific domains (such as decentralized exchanges, layer 2 scaling tech, open finance apps, etc.) to add or update the information on the projects respective page on the EthHub repo. If no page exists, we encourage you to create one.
In the interest of keeping the content on EthHub looking uniform, we have set up a template that you can use when adding your own pages to the GitHub repo. You can find the template here.
There are also some basic guidelines that need to be followed when contributing to EthHub:
- All pages should have links to supporting sources/documentation and additional resources
- No marketing or sponsored posts
- No promotion of ICOs/token sales
- No inappropriate content
A big thank you to every single person that has contributed to EthHub so far (we’re at 39 contributors already)! We hope that you’ll join us in working to develop and improve EthHub throughout 2019.
