ETHDenver 2024

Largest and Longest Running #BUIDLathon in the World

Welcome to ETHDenver: The Largest and Longest Running #BUIDLathon in the World!

ETHDenver is the world’s largest and longest running blockchain-focused #BUIDLathon (aka hackathon). Here, we bring together a vibrant mix of over 25,000 innovators from more than 120 countries, creating a hub of innovation. ETHDenver is where developers, creators, and visionaries gather to tackle critical challenges and bring to life groundbreaking ideas in blockchain and distributed computing.

Have you been accepted to attend ETHDenver?
Make sure you apply to attend ETHDenver BEFORE completing the #BUIDLathon application on Devfolio.

This application is tokengated by tokenproof. You must use the same wallet address and email address as tokenproof in your devfolio application. IF things are not the same, you may miss out on exclusive #BUIDLer airdrops.

A Global Stage for Trailblazing Ideas and Funding Opportunities

ETHDenver is not just about competition; it's a launchpad for success. With over $1,000,000 in sponsor bounties, prizes prizes, and up to $10,000,000 in grants and investments, ETHDenver offers substantial support to help turn visionary ideas into reality.

A Legacy of Success and Community Impact

The impact of ETHDenver extends well beyond the event. Our alumni have collectively raised over $300 million in funding, not counting undisclosed grants and early-stage investments. Many of our past #BUIDL teams include 1Inch, POAP.xyz, Huma Finance, Harpie, and Bankless, and more have grown from humble beginnings at our hackathon to become key sponsors, partners, and integral contributors to the Community Innovation Festival at ETHDenver.

Join the Blockchain Innovation

As ETHDenver continues to expand its horizons, we invite you to be among the next wave of 7,000+ #BUIDLers at our upcoming event. This is your opportunity to join a community that is not just witnessing but actively shaping the future of blockchain technology.

What Will The Internet Look Like For ETHDenver 2024

The IT team for ETHDenver 2024 has performed a comprehensive assessment of the state of the IT infrastructure for the upcoming show, this included 2 site visits, review of internal communications about issues, and collection of explicit feedback from stakeholders. During this assessment the IT team identified the following major pain points and have taken steps to remediate:
• Undersized core infrastructure which likely resulted in dropped connections when the firewall state table filled up
• Undersized NAT Pool causing throttling to various services due to an uneven distribution of connections
• Lack of access point density in the BUIDLHub resulting in dropped connections and overloaded equipment

Throughout the venue the IT team is taking steps to identify wireless dead zones and improve coverage proactively, they have developed reactionary plans to resolve reported dead zones in real time, during the event through tactical deployment of equipment. No more than 20-25 clients per access point. After careful consideration, they have decided to deploy network switches at each row to provide optional hardwired connectivity.
