Barcelona, Spain – ETHBarcelona, the premier Ethereum conference in Spain, will take place from July 5 to 9, 2023.
This year, the event introduces a conference and hackathon format, departing from its previous structure. This shift aims to captivate the developer community, industry experts, and enthusiasts worldwide, creating a vibrant and inclusive collaboration and knowledge exchange environment.
This year, ETHBarcelona will embrace the themes of SolarPunk and LunarPunk movements, envisioning a world where technology is harnessed positively to drive our planet forward sustainably and ethically.
By going beyond the “sustainable” and “green” movement, ETHBarcelona aims to foster a future where humanity co-exists with the environment healthily and positively, all while addressing the existential risks of mass surveillance.
The event will showcase the latest trends and advancements in web3 relevant to sustainability and secure systems. ZK technology advancements will take center stage, aligning with the LunarPunk value of privacy preservation.
A lineup of experts, including Vlad Zamfir of Smart Transactions, Amanda Keleher of Consensys, Mario Havel of Ethereum Foundation, Miguel Piedrafita of Worldcoin, and others, will grace the ETHBarcelona stage, sharing their insights on the intersection of blockchain, sustainability, privacy, and security.
Mario Havel, Ethereum Foundation’s researcher, said:
“ETHBarcelona 2023 serves as a pivotal event for not just solarpunks but all Ethereum hackers in Catalonia/Spain. Uniting our visionary minds and fostering the latest ideas on crucial topics like public goods, privacy, and sustainability.”
ETHBarcelona aims to foster collaboration and knowledge-sharing among participants through various activities. The event will feature talks, panels, workshops, and a festival atmosphere, encouraging the growth of a holistic mind, body, and soul. Networking spaces aim to provide opportunities for meaningful connections, while a hackathon could spur innovation and inspire partnerships.
Manu Alzuru, founder of DoinGud and co-organizer of ETHBarcelona, added:
“Many of us got into web3 to build a better world where technology catalyzes positive transformation. Our mission at ETHBarcelona is to foster a sustainable community where we promote ethical tools that safeguard the principles of human freedom, sovereignty, and privacy. Our event is more than a conference; it is a festival of ideas, a celebration of knowledge exchange that transcends boundaries. We believe in cultivating a holistic environment that nurtures the growth of the mind, body, and soul like no other event in the web3 space. We will keep fostering a community dedicated to creating public goods and leaving a lasting impact on our collective journey toward a brighter tomorrow.”
ETHBarcelona anticipates a remarkable turnout comparable to the previous year, as 2,200 enthusiastic attendees gather to engage in exploration, learning, and collaboration. Emphasizing its commitment to inclusivity and diversity, preliminary data reveals that 50% of the event’s speakers and 40% of its attendees are women.
The event aims to foster an environment where individuals from diverse backgrounds can come together to contribute their unique perspectives and collectively shape the future of technology.
