Ethereum Community and Adoption Update – Week 1

Hello, I’m Stephan Tual. Since January, he has been responsible for Ethereum implementation and education as CCO.I also lead the UK. ÐΞV The hub is located at Co-Work in Putney (southwest London).

I am truly honored to lead the communications strategy efforts at ÐΞV. For the first time, we are seeing mainstream people genuinely interested in the potential of decentralization. The feeling of excitement that I felt on that fateful Christmas afternoon when I first read Vitalik’s white paper is now shared by hundreds of thousands of engineers, developers, and entrepreneurs. I am.

Ether sales enable a group of smart, hard-working individuals to work full-time on solving core technical and implementation challenges, delivering solutions 10x faster than comparable garage-based efforts It is now possible. With Ethereum’s API supporting Gav’s vision, web 3, the community can finally build decentralized applications without intermediaries. By democratizing access to programmable blockchain technology, Ethereum will enable software developers and entrepreneurs to not only decentralize the economy, but also have a major impact on social structures, voting mechanisms, and more. I’ll make it. This is a very ambitious project. ÐΞV I feel a strong sense of mission to realize this vision.

Technology is obviously important as part of our efforts, but so is recruitment. Ethereum without dapps (decentralized apps) is like a video game console without a launch title, and like other protocols, applications are expected to be the real stars of the show. We are planning ways to disseminate this information and support developer efforts.

education

Building a curriculum: We are building an extensive curriculum adapted for both teachers and self-studies at home, hackathons, and universities around the world. Consisting of well-defined modules that increase in complexity over time, our goal is to establish a learning standard that is, of course, completely free and 100% open source.

Content aggregation: We are aware that information on how to “get into” Ethereum is a bit fragmented across multiple forums at this time. Wiki and various third party sites. We will be creating subdomains for our website in the coming months so that you can easily access this valuable information in one place.

Create tutorials, videos, and articles: Tutorials are the key to learning a new language and set of tools. By creating both videos and text-based tutorials, we intend to provide the community with an insider’s perspective on best practices, from building contract storage to leveraging new features. whisper For example, P2P messaging systems.

CodeAcademy-like site: Not everyone likes learning in a classroom environment, and some people find linear tutorials limiting. As the release date coincides with the launch of Ethereum, we are partnering with a US-based company to build sites like his CodeAcademy within a gamified environment. There, you can learn how to build dapps at your own pace. backend contract.

university branch:Vitalik and I recently gave a presentation at the University of Cambridge, and Ethereum will be attending this conference. transparency hackathon on November 26th at the University of Geneva. Encouraged by the enthusiasm we have witnessed in academia, we Oxbridge Blocktech Network (OBN) is working to build a network of branches, first within the UK and then across Europe.

We are delighted to announce that Ken Kapler has joined the UK team supporting these educational activities. Many of you in London will know Ken. He’s a semi-permanent fixture at all of our meetups and hackathons, graciously helping out behind the scenes.Ken known as Blue Chain IRCHe is also the author of http://dappsforbeginners.wordpress.com/ This will soon be integrated with its own educational site.

Ken hosts a weekly “Ethereum Clinic” on IRC where he answers any questions you may have about his current projects.Times will be posted on our forum.

Exchange meeting

Encourage the creation of new networking groups: We currently have an extensive network. 85 social gatherings While this is a remarkable achievement, it is not enough to address the overwhelming demand for regular catch-up in a format that is appropriate to local needs and culture. We intend to encourage the creation of new meetups in almost every country and major city hub.

Tools and support: To further our efforts to build and maintain such a large-scale international meetup network, meetup leaders interact with each other and have access to core development teams for video conferencing and physical intervention. , provides tools for exchanging ideas. Information about the speaker. Of course, these tools are free to use and access.

Materials and venue: For the most active meetups, Ethereum will consider using small subsidies where appropriate so that meetup leaders in these “core locations” do not have to contend with collateral or full venue fees. I am. We will also work with our partners to help meetups secure sponsorship and access to free space to host their mini-conferences.

global hackathon: Starting this week, Ethereum workshops will gradually transform into formal hackathons. We are collaborating with amazing places around the world, most of which started as Ethereum meetups and are organizing global hackathons where we will award amazing ETH prizes to the best his DAPPs.

we are very fortunate to welcome anthony donofrio To advance these very important initiatives. Anthony starts on the 10th of this month and will also cover the North American region from a community perspective. You probably already know him by his handle “Texture” on most forums and channels.


I’m very proud that Ethereum’s exposure in the community has been completely organic from day one. This is the result of an extensive, time-consuming effort to identify real-world Ethereum projects, reach out to them directly, and build strong relationships with their user base. We have achieved several significant milestones, including over 10,000 followers. twitterour website receives 100,000 page views per month and we see similar numbers on our website. forum And the growth trend will only continue to accelerate.

Historically, Ethereum has never used PR as a tool to increase adoption, instead relying on word of mouth, meetups, and conferences to spread the word. Due to rapidly increasing media attention, we are pleased to welcome Freya Stevens to the team as her PR/Marketing lead. Freya helps you identify powerful story angles while building a shared database of media leads, writing articles, and making complex technology accessible to the public. Freya is based in Cambridge, UK.

We’re also proud to welcome aka George Hallam to the team as we look to scale these efforts. high five ghostrecently posted investigation This allows us to let Ethereum know how well we are doing our jobs as platform administrators and developers. George is a major supporter of london communitymany people already know.

Expect to see more interactions as part of these efforts. reddit, IRCof course we discuss our own things forum. George also helps us identify major Ethereum-based projects and see how we can best help them with information, connections, and guest participation in weekly updated videos. I’ll give it to you.

We welcome Ian Meikle to our London hub to produce some very high quality content. Ian is the creator of most of the video material related to Ethereum. video loop This is a staple at many Ethereum meetups. Ian utilizes the studio’s facilities to create explainer videos, interview key figures in the field and record panels he leads. vinay guptawill join the Comms team as a strategic consultant.

London and beyond Panels, Social, Hackathonsplans to promote this model internationally later in the month, with regular “show and tell” scheduled for dapp developers to present their work and receive feedback.

And last but not least, a major update to the website with beautiful, clean content, dapp examples in action, a dynamic meetup map, and links to all newly created assets and community contacts. Please look forward to it.

The conclusion is

The question we keep asking ourselves every day is how can we support you, our community, to build great dapps and succeed in your ventures on our platform? We hope this gives you a brief understanding of our plans.We will issue regular updates both on this blog and on our company. Youtube.
