ETHOnline

Hackathon + Summits

October 2nd - 30th, 2020

ETHGlobal's biggest event of the year.

Remember when new tech was... exciting?



When tech was about more than bigger screens, exclusive clubhouses, the un-bundling and re-bundling of features?

The days when you went out of your way to try the latest thing. Even if it wasn't perfect. Because it wasn't perfect. Because you could see where this was going.

Well, have we got news for you.

All over the world, hundreds of thousands of developers, users, hobbyists, creators, anarchists, artists, and market makers spend their days and nights thinking, building, talking about Ethereum because we are... excited.

We're excited by the idea that Ethereum can change things. That Ethereum is a fulcrum we can use to change money, finance, the web, the way software works and the way power is distributed.

This October, we invite you to come learn what all the talk is about.

ETHOnline is our way of celebrating an incredible year in Ethereum, bringing the community together at a time when we're kept apart.

Whether you're here to build or here to learn, we hope you'll join us.

“Hackmoney was a magical experience for us. It focused our team and helped us raise a round of financing - this hackathon changed our lives”

Jordi

“ETHGlobal events are the best place for us to engage with the developers and builders in the ecosystem. There are few events that are solely focused on the exciting tech in this space and none as well-run as those by ETHGlobal.”

FAQ

Does ETHOnline cost money?

No! ETHOnline is 100% free, for both hackers and summit attendees.

However, we do require hackers to "stake" a small amount of cryptocurrency to claim their spot. This stake is 100% returned as long as you participate in the hackathon and submit something - even a partial project - at the end.

I'm totally new to Ethereum - can I join the hackathon?

Absolutely! Our events are open to both beginners and veterans. We have special content & support available for hackers who are new to Ethereum.

How many people can be on a hackathon team?

You can form teams of up to 5 people. There are no restrictions for team members, so you can team up with hackers of any country or experience level!

What will the summits be about?

We'll be releasing a schedule in the coming weeks with details!

ETHOnline will cover all the key topics in Ethereum, ranging from the future of the Ethereum protocol to the latest DeFi innovations.

Is there a code of conduct?

Yes! Our core ethos has been to make it easy for anyone to dream big, and that means creating a positive environment where people can be themselves. To that end, we've developed a Code of Conduct.
