Ethos of Ethereal

Gitcoin is launching an emergent social experiment at Ethereal Summit called Ethos

E·thos — the characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community as manifested in its beliefs and aspirations.

We’re inspired by how ideas can travel, and new connections can form, in communities with shared values. As the blockchain community is built around the shared value of decentralization as an organizing principle, this experiment is meant to visualize the emergent of the social graph of Ethereal Summit.

Here’s how it works.

1. Ethos— The SolidCoin

We’ve got 50 Ethos Solidcoins, which we will be distributing for free at Ethereal Summit 2018.

Ethos Coins!

2. Get It — Scan It!

Each of them has a QR code on the back. When you scan it, you will be taken to a page which allows you to enter your twitter username and your web3 address.

3. Claim Your Ethos

When you ‘Claim’ your Ethos, we will:

  1. Send Ethos ERC20 token to the person who gave you your Solid Coin.
  2. Tweet the emergent social graph to you.

We are incentivizing the sharing of Ethos. The faster the Solid Coin moves through the community, the more Ethos is distributed. If a ‘branch’ of the graph is abandoned, the upstream nodes will not receive as much Ethos.

This is an emergent social experiment designed to create new connections between conference attendees. In other words, it’s just for fun! We hope you enjoy it.

You can follow the experiment on twitter at @EthosEthereal.

Enjoy!
