Year of the SporkWhale

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.

What is ETHDenver?

ETHDenver is the largest Web3 #BUIDLathon in the world (fka hackathon) for Ethereum and other blockchain protocol enthusiasts, designers and developers.

Blockchain companies from around the world will host events in an open source format, inviting all to attend. Then moving into main event weekend, venues come to life featuring talks and workshops by top blockchain influencers and experts, BUIDLathon space to collaborate on projects, art installations, live music, networking events, food, drinks, and more.

The community attending ETHDenver shows up to contribute to the global blockchain ecosystem, whether by #BUIDLing decentralized applications (dApps), contributing to or starting infrastructure level projects, writing documentation / tutorials / white-papers, designing UI/UX, or info-graphics, or to learn, connect, and get more involved. So bring your inner awesomeness and some friends. We’ll provide mentors, resources, and all of the educational content you can consume.

ETHDenver is 100% community funded, and SporkDAO, the community-owned organization of ETHDenver, is on a mission to #BUIDL Colorado as the destination of choice to build a decentralized future, and will be raising a $10 million fund that will be deployed into the investments of projects that will come out of ETHDenver 2024.

The goal is to give value directly back to the community following the completion of the event–with ETHDenver functioning as an incubator and launchpad to create year-round funding for projects.

When applications are open, the quickest way to apply is online. Follow our step-by-step instructions to apply to join SporkDAO and apply to attend ETHDenver. You can book hotel and travel accommodations through ETHDenver Lodging & Travel.

If you do not want to join SporkDAO to attend ETHDenver for free, you can purchase a General Admission ticket with a credit card. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

If I'm under 18 at the time of the event, can I still participate?

Yes. But not being 18 (legal adulthood in the US), you cannot legally agree to our application waiver or join SporkDAO as a member. With parent/legal guardian consent and release, you can attend with them (or a chaperone approved by your parent/guardian).

If you participate in the #BUIDLathon and you win any ETHDenver Track Prize or Sponsor Bounty Prizes, you will be unable to claim the prizes because of your age. If your parent/legal guardian wants to take responsibility for the “income” they may claim on your behalf, if they complete KYC and Tax Forms on site at the event.

Under 18 (Student) applicants will complete a different application than the application that individuals over the age of 18 will complete.
