This year’s Devcon is special in many ways. We’ve used the last three years to create a whole new experience based on all that we’ve seen at past Devcons, and lessons learned while event-planning during the pandemic. Devcon VI involved the community via Community Hubs and Devcon Improvement Proposals (DIPs), features a Public Goods Supporters Program that relaces a traditional sponsorship effort, and will introduce Impact Booths in Bogotá.
In past years, booths have only been available to teams with large budgets that are able to pay for sponsorship packages. This year, we reserved booths for teams with high impact on the Ethereum ecosystem, regardless of their budgets.
At Devcon VI, Impact Booths will feature client teams, those improving Ethereum’s infrastructure, public goods efforts, roll-up projects, and other selected high-impact projects.
Devcon VI Impact teams are:
Arbitrum, Aztec, Battlezips, BuidlGuild, dApp Learning DAO, Dappnode, Devfolio, Ethereum Name Service (ENS), Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (EPF), Ecosystem Support Program (ESP), EthereumOnArm, ethdotorg, ethstaker, Formal Verification, Gitcoin DAO, ITU Blockchain, L2BEAT, Lodestar, Nethermind, Nimbus, Optimism, Polygon, Prism, Protocol Guild, Remix, Scroll, Sigma Prime, Snake Charmers, Solidity, Sourcify, Starknet, Stereum, and TrueFi.
The Devcon Supporters Program recognizes recent contributors to Ethereum-Related Public Goods.
Stakeholders from leading participants across industries have lent their overwhelming support to Ethereum.
We introduced this program in lieu of traditional sponsorships, and those teams that participated deserve special thanks for their contributions to Ethereum-related public goods funding, includingthe ETHColombia Quadratic Funding Round @ Devcon, Gitcoin, CLR.Fund’s open grants, and the Protocol Guild (which supported core Ethereum research and development).
Our team owes a big thank you to those teams and DAOs that joined our first-ever Supporter Program this year without most benefits expected by sponsors. Their support of the Ethereum ecosystem came without things like reserved seating, most branding, speaker slots, named event areas and other traditional sponsor-like benefits. EF will also proudly be contributing toward these efforts.
