02/10/2020 - A Fireside Chat on DAOs&DeFi w/ Ameen Soleimani (Moloch DAO) & Nodar J (DeFiZap) RSVP here
Event Description:

This event, focused on DAOs & DeFi, will feature a Fireside Chat with Ameen Soleimani (the Founder of MolochDAO, SpankChain, ..) & Nodar Janashia (the Co-Founder of DeFiZap). We’re going to dive in to DAOs and Defi. What’s scaling, what’s not, and why.

Moloch DAOs is an Ethereum community funding initiative. It’s part charity and part playfully terrifying meme (Moloch is an ancient god of child sacrifice). Moloch DAO exists as a collection of membership units (shares), which represent voting interests: one share = one vote. So each member’s voting power is proportional to her percentage of overall shares. A contribution to Moloch DAO isn’t an investment in the traditional sense. Instead of seeking a direct financial benefit, members share in the collective benefit from improvements to public goods funded by the DAO. Moloch focus on funding Ethereum 2.0 development

DeFiZap is a rapidly growing app that enables users to allocate assets across multiple DeFi protocols in one transaction, saving time and gas. Zap is a smart contract that auto-spreads incoming deposits across Compound, Fulcrum, TokenSets and others, based on pre-set allocations. DeFiZap was created at the Kyber Network Hackathon, where it beat out 77 other submissions to win the $5,000 grand prize. Since launching two months ago, DeFiZap has scaled to over 250 customers deploying more than 3,500 ETH in DeFi via the app.

There will be food and drink and plenty of time for networking.

02/12/2020 - 1MillionCups Denver: #Cryptorado Edition! RSVP here
Event Description:

1 Million Cups is a free,
national program designed to educate, engage and connect entrepreneurs.
Developed by the Kauffman Foundation, 1MC is based on the notion that
entrepreneurs discover solutions over a million cups of coffee.

Every Wednesday from 9 AM – 10 AM, two entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, and entrepreneurs. Presentations will fall into 1 of 3 categories: investor, product, or idea (from established startup to testing an idea). Presenters prepare a 6
minute educational presentation (not pitching) followed by 20 minutes
of audience feedback and questioning.  All backgrounds are encouraged to
attend in order to give the diverse feedback to the presenters.
Entrepreneurs
gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses,
gather real-time feedback, connect with a community that truly cares
about their progress, and walk away feeling like they have advanced
their business. The audience also learns a great deal from the
presentations. Whether this is through passively listening, deeply
engaging with the entrepreneurs, or sending feedback through the 1MC
app, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse
communities.

Energize your day by coming early (8:45 AM) for free coffee and
connecting (not networking) with other entrepreneurs and members from
the community. We welcome anyone to attend who supports the Denver
Entrepreneurial Community. 1MC Denver meets every Wednesday, 8:45 AM for
coffee and connecting and 9
AM for presentations at Enterprise Coworking Rino (3000 Lawrence St, Denver, CO 80205). Free 2 Hour parking is available around the building and free day parking by Mestizo-Curtis Park. And public transportation is a viable option with nearby bus and train stops.

02/12/2020 - Cosmos Ethermint Workshop RSVP here
Event Description:

One of the ways Ethereum will show up across the Interchain is with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). This is a time tested secure execution environment with properties that make it ideal for smart contracts. If you are building a network outside of Ethereum and you want to utilize the EVM, one easy way to do so is to use the Cosmos SDK and the included Ethermint Module being developed by ChainSafe. Aragon has recently decided to run their own network that utilizes this architecture in order to make protocol level decisions for their users. This enables them to modify gas costs, increase throughput and design their own token economics from the ground up.

If you are interested in learning about building application-specific and interconnected Blockchains before EthDenver, join our workshop on Wednesday, February 12th during BUIDL Week. This session will be a hands on instructional course that uses the Cosmos SDK to build an NFT Blockchain. We will also go over the process of deploying your own EVM Blockchain that you can interact with via Metamask and utilizing all your favorite Ethereum developer tools. The workshop will be taught by Billy Rennekamp, founder of Clovers Network and developer relations engineer at Tendermint, Inc.

02/12/2020 - SourceCred: A Social Algorithm RSVP here
Event Description:

SourceCred is a social algorithm and an economic system. The social algorithm assigns reputational “cred” scores to contributors based on the value they’ve added to the project. The economic system distributes “grain” tokens to those contributors, and creates incentives for sponsors to buy and burn those tokens. We intend it as a general purpose protocol that decentralized organizations can use for reputation, rewards, and governance.

At the same time, SourceCred is an active experiment in incentivized open source, as everyone contributing to the project both earns cred and receives grain.

In this talk and discussion session, we’ll explore:

– How the SourceCred algorithm assigns scores to contributions, and why it is gaming-resilient

– What happened when we started paying all SourceCred contributors based on their cred scores

– What’s next for the project and how you can get involved

The event is hosted by Dandelion, the Temporary Benevolent Dictator of  SourceCred.

Event Description:

Neo Colorado is excited to host its next event during BUIDL Week in the lead up to the fifth ETH Denver taking place February 14th – 16th, 2020! BUIDL Week will offer a wide variety of blockchain-oriented events — such as workshops, panels, and tech demos — that are free and open to the public.

As part of its 2020 campaign, Neo Colorado aims to delve further into the Neo platform’s mechanics and functionality. To do so, we’ll be designing“201” and “301” level events oriented towards business use cases, developers, and BUIDLers in Colorado’s and broader blockchain communities.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Neo Colorado’s next event will delve further into the “Why” of Neo. Why use Neo for a business use case? Why develop on the Neo blockchain? Why explore Neo when thinking of which blockchain to use for your project? Why does 100% finality matter? Why are other projects using Neo?

_____________________________________________________________________________

In addition to the “Why,” this event will also provide a broad, yet concise, overview of resources available to developers. This includes support for devs who prefer to code with JavaScript/TypeScript, Python, Go, Java, C#, or VisualStudio.

Lastly, Neo Colorado will introduce the neo-burner wallet (inspired by Austin Griffith’s Ethereum-based burner wallet), and distribute a paper wallet to individuals who RSVP for and attend the event!

Attendees are encouraged to download the O3 mobile wallet before the event at:
https://o3.network/

Hosting a Community Event

#BUIDL Week community event hosting is open source and permissionless, and can be done by any person, group or project. Whether you’re local or traveling to Denver from across the globe, everyone is invited to host events designed to prepare attendees for ETHDenver and further the blockchain discussion worldwide. All you need to do is list your event in the form below, and it will be immediately available for others to see! Need some added support? We also have some great resources available to you to help make your event a success.

Event space is available through our sponsor, Enterprise Coworking Rino including several shorter daily time slots available at no cost, as well as longer paid slots available as well. You can request this by emailing buidlweek@ethdenver.com. Events may be held anytime Mon Feb 10-Thu, Feb 13.

NOTE: In the interest of reducing distractions during ETHDenver itself, we ask that the community refrain from hosting offsite events Feb 14, 15 or 16. Hosting an event that conflicts with ETHDenver itself will result in delisting of your event from the #BUIDL Week Schedule.

 

Event Support and Resources:

Cryptorado and ETHDenver have partnered to offer local support in coordinating events surrounding #BUIDL Week and ETHDenver. You supply the content and Cryptorado provides anything else you need to host your event, including: venue, refreshments, A/V, marketing and more. Cryptorado also coordinates year-round Colorado meetups and has strong connections with local universities and blockchain/crypto enthusiasts, making it easier to connect with the Cryptorado Community and bring awareness to you and/or your project.

*** Click here to learn how the Cryptorado team/community can support you with your event! ***

Blockchain Ticketing for Event Hosts:

For those planning community events during #BUIDLWeek, we recommend trying out blockchain-based solutions to immerse participants in as much blockchain tech as possible throughout the week.

Free Events: https://kickback.events asks attendees to commit a small amount of ETH/DAI when they RSVP, which is refunded upon event check-in. Any no-shows lose their commitment, which can then be split among attendees. It has been widely used at side events during Devcon4 and Devcon5. Complete this form to begin arranging your event. Questions can be directed to hello@kickback.events

Paid Events: https://mintbase.io and https://unlock-protocol.com each enable you to create NFT-based tickets which attendees can conveniently have on hand in their crypto wallet. They also provide lower transaction fees compared to non-crypto based ticketing solutions. They have been used at events such as nft.nyc and ETHWaterloo.

Complimentary Coworking Space Access

#BUIDL Week participants are invited to enjoy complimentary  Enterprise Coworking Rino access throughout the week. Get a bit of work done between sessions in a space where you can meet with other blockchain industry professionals. Mon-Thu 9am-5pm at Enterprise Coworking. You’ll also have access to cowork from the Sports Castle itself (ETHDenver venue) on Thursday from 9am-9pm.
