The biggest Hacker House till date — Web3Auth and Solana Team Up in Bengaluru
Earlier this year we made a special announcement about co-organizing 4 global Hacker Houses with Solana. The first such collaboration took place in Singapore in February this year over 6 unforgettable days.
Regarding the next collaboration, we asked our folks on Twitter on where they thought we would be next and guess what, they got it right. Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of India was indeed to become our second destination for the global tour.
Highest Turnout Ever
India has one of the biggest developer communities in the world and not surprisingly, the event received way more registrations than the venue could accommodate. What happened as a result? A long queue that has never been seen in any of the Solana Hacker House conducted anywhere in the world.
The participants mostly included enterprising college going folks between the age 17–21.
We caught hold of 14-year old X to find out why he was at the Hacker House (and not in school)
Office Hours with Team Web3Auth
Fresh from participating at two major blockchain events, first at the Paris Blockchain Week and later at ETHAmsterdam, team Web3Auth was present in full force at the Bengaluru Hacker House. Web3Auth offered office hours which were attended by different participants. The Web3Auth team patiently spent time answering queries of different kinds ranging from UI/UX to user on-boarding to privacy and security.
Influencers on Stage — Tanmay Bhat and Biswa Kalyan Rath
Two major star attractions at the event were two of India’s most famous stand-up comedians. However, only one of them was at the event in capacity as a comic and that was Biswa Kalyan Rath who performed on the second day of the event leaving the young crowd thoroughly entertained. A lot of previously unheard crypto jokes found presence in his set for the Hacker House.
The other star attraction was Tanmay Bhatt who was at the event in capacity as a member of the SuperTeam DAO. The SuperTeam DAO’s main role is to help grow the Solana ecosystem in India, South East Asia, Eastern Europe, and Africa. Tanmay, one of India’s most well-known digital content creators, offered a very insightful presentation on “how to make good content?”
Many Applications Integrated with Web3Auth
Web3Auth was integrated with many applications being built at the Hacker House. We showcase two such integrations in the videos below.

Our Sr Software Engineers Shubham Rathi and Himanshu Chawla presented practical and valuable insights on how the young developers in the audience can leverage Web3Auth’s SDKs to increase conversion rate one their dApps.
All in all, the Bengaluru Hacker House was one of the most successful Hacker Houses conducted till date and we’re already looking forward to the next time we will be in India.
