Highlights from Hacker House w/NEAR: Consensus 2022 and The Graph Hack
In June, States DAO held two Hacker Houses in San Fransisco and Austin!
Thanks to NEAR’s scholarship to States DAO, we were able to accommodate 8 fellows from our 1st fellowship (SDF01) and our community! This article will walk you through our experience. 😎

🛠 What we built:
COzA (Co2 Awareness)
This project was planned to raise awareness of eco-friendly crypto projects, such as StepN, SleepN, States DAO (because when you’re learning, you’re not producing CO2), and more. The CozA users guess how much Co2 carbon footprint is reduced by these crypto services, and the gamification mechanism rewards them with Awareness-Tokens (AWA). These tokens will also serve as governance tokens in the future.

We attended to the conference site and met many exciting Web3 projects!
States DAO’s Side Events
Aside from the ‘Consensus 2022' events, States DAO also hosted our own events including a Happy Hour, Korean Barbecue, and Pool Party at the NEAR Hacker House.
🍹 Happy Hour:
We hosted our Happy Hour event at theNEAR Hacker House in Austin. In this spacious and pleasant space, we introduced our vision as a ‘Learning DAO’ and ‘Investing in Human Potential’ to our visitors.
Our event sponsors, BlockchainSpace, introduced their project during our Happy Hour event. BlockchainSpace enables play-to-earn guilds to scale in the metaverse, serving 24,000+ guilds with 1.5 million players. They have an impressively strong network in the Web3 gaming ecosytem.

🥓 Korean BBQ Party:
It was extremely hot in Austin, but we were thrilled to see many people attend and enjoy our K-BBQ Party.
The States DAO team grilled the meat for the visitors to eat. The weather was hot, but we felt our hearts warm-up (or burn up) to see our visitors not only enjoying the food, but also opening up to our team. We were happy to see many people already being so ready to get to know more about us. With great Korean food, all the participants seemed to bond as one.
⛱ Pool Party during luncheon:
We threw a private Pool Party on yet another hot day. We met many friendly visitors with an open-heart vibe. Here, we were able to be chill and make many new connections!
Thanks to the NEAR Hacker House, we were able to meet amazing people. We would like to thank all the visitors and those who took interest in States DAO. Above all, we would like to express our gratitude for NEAR, who provided us with scholarships and helped us organize States DAO’s side events.
Love you all, and see you soon 🙌
