ETHDenver Returns to Bridge the Gap Between Innovation and User-Centricity for Web3

By Decrypt Staff

ETHDenver, the world’s largest annual Web3 Community Innovation Festival returns for its 7th year from 29 February to 3 March 2024 at the National Western Complex, Denver, Colorado to drive key conversations in web3 and crypto innovation with a focus on setting new standards for strong user experience to onboard the next million users.

“Ethereum and web3’s potential in 2024 is boundless. Confidence is evidently returning to the market as we’re seeing consistent growth in user activity and decisive actions by regulators and institutions. What we now need is a renewed focus on improving user experience (UX) and Ethereum’s original ethos which will pave the way for adoption to take place. By uniting the global Ethereum community, ETHDenver will be that meeting point for new ideas and standards to be set for the industry,” said John Paller, Founder and Executive Steward of ETHDenver.

The festival anticipates over 20,000 attendees and will feature 600 speakers including Hester Peirce, Commissioner of US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on US crypto policy and regulations, Li Jin, Co-Founder and General Partner at Variant on DeFi lending, Jesse Pollak, Creator of Base on the future of CeDeFi, Christine Kim, VP of Research of Galaxy on value accrual from L1 to L2, and Nick White, COO of Celestia on data availability.

The event also features the #BUIDLathon, the industry’s largest hackathon, offering $1 million in Web3 bounties this year. #BUIDLers will team up in groups of two to four and have up to nine days to bring their unique Web3 ideas to life, with 24/7 support from peers, mentors, stewards, and sponsors.

Vitalik’s recent blog post called the community’s attention back to the basics of decentralization as adoption remains low while existing activity occurs mostly on centralized platforms and ETHDenver will be the place for these discussions to happen.
