:mountain_snow: DeSci Rockies: ethDenver Travel Grants & Events

What is it?

The ethDenver hack-a-thon and generic web3 palooza is taking place from February 11-20, with an estimated 20k attendees this year.

What’s happening?

The event includes a hack-a-thon with over a 500k in prizes and bounties spread out across several tracks. #BUIDL week kicks off on the 11th at the Art Hotel and continues until the 17th. The in-person hack-a-thon will transition to a virtual hack-a-thon after the conference is concluded.

The main event begins on the 17th and includes significant keynote speakers before ending with an awards ceremony for winning hack-a-thon projects followed by an after-party.

After the conference, there is a retreat in the Rocky Mountains at the Breckenridge Mountain Resort. Conference events and socials will also take place amidst the fun in the snow.
