The year of the


FEBRUARY 23 - MarCH 3, 2024

ETHDenver is a community owned innovation festival

With the genesis of SporkDAO in June of 2021, ETHDenver became the first event DAO in the world. All event proceeds are used to #BUIDL value for our community and to realize the decentralized future.

2024 is The Year of the SporkWhale. SporkWhales are peak contributors to the SporkDAO ecosystem. They #BUIDL, submit projects, create, and frolic in the Bufficorn Sea. Known for their large troves of $SPORK, SporkWhales are indeed a curious and fantastical member of the Bufficorn family.


SporkDAO’s ETHDenver #BUIDLathon is about gathering like-minds around a common purpose. Distributed computing is the future, and Colorado is a leading community supporting this emerging technology.

Our goal is empowering the Web3 community to shape this new world while cementing the Rocky Mountain region and the state of Colorado as a thriving hub of Ethereum and blockchain innovation.
