BogoHacks Collaborative: Devcon Community Hub Proposal


We are excited to bring people within the ETH Ecosystem together by providing a Community Hub at Devcon. We Intend to bring awareness of the newest developments, projects successes, and what is needed most for the Ethereum space.

Everyone within the community is invited! Whether they be new to web3 or an expert hacker, we are excited to provide a space where anyone can participate in conversations, discussions, and presentations focused on:

  • Scaling
  • Security
  • ZK Tech
  • DeFi improvements
  • Web2 Integrations
  • Metaverse
  • Diversity in the ecosystem
  • Hackathons
  • Web3 Standards
  • Blockchain for social good
  • NFTs
  • Anything EVM tech-focused!

Hackathon winners will also be invited to share their projects and ideas with the community, diving deep into what drives them forward in web3 and creating discussions based on their winning product.

There are a lot of improvements to be made in all industries, and with forward-thinking people, we hope to incubate new ideas to improve the web3 ecosystem. Metis is a network made by people for the people, and we will embody that within the Devcon Community Hub.

What we will offer to Devcon attendees

  • Office Hours
    • We will provide a morning activity (ie zen garden, yoga, meditation, coffee class and sampling. TBD) from 8AM-10AM for attendees to relax, find grounding, and get ready for the day.
    • Each day at 11am then again at 2pm, members of the Metis team will provide office hours on the topic that drives them forward in the space. Attendees will be able to meet with leaders within the industry to converse and exchange ideas and opinions.
    • Community content, in which verified attendees who have applied to present their work from the recent hackathons or verified attendees who have applied to lead a discussion round, will be open everyday from 2pm-6pm. We will create a submission form to apply for a time slot for their presentation.
    • A team member will be available in the Hub from 10am-6pm. Night Owl Hours begin at 6pm and will remain open until 11pm when the conference venue closes, allowing devs and attendees to continue collaborating, or to retreat to and enjoy the amenities as the day winds down.
  • Community Content: Discussion Rounds spread throughout the day
    • Attendees will be able to schedule a discussion round to speak and invite others to join in the Hub. These discussion time slots will be 20-40 minutes (like a keynote).
  • Community Content: Learning Material
    • In parallel to discussion rounds, we will offer Metis team member and peer-based workshops on how to exist on the blockchain from beginner to expert level
  • Interactive experiences
    • Speak with team members and peers within web3- getting information from the source!
    • Kahoot: we will host an educational game anyone can join and have the opportunity to win prizes! (prizes can be Ledger set, VPN subscription, NFT drop, Powerbank, earbuds, headphones, microphone, backpack, all ethnetwork swagbag, ect, TBD)

Hey there! Thank you for handing in this proposal @cat! :slight_smile:

General update on the process: The RFP is open until end of this week. Shortly after this (beginning of next week), we will share which Community Hub proposals got accepted and will work with those accepted teams to fine-tune the proposals / hubs.

Hi there,

We would like to thank you again for putting together this proposal!

The space allocated to Community Hubs is limited which means we can only accept six proposals.

Many of the proposals we received were very high quality and, unfortunately, we had to take hard decisions. There is simply not enough space to accommodate all of them.

With this post, I’d like to inform you that your proposal was not selected for this year’s Community space.

Again, thank you for showing initiative to contribute to the Devcon Bogotá experience and we hope to see you there soon nonetheless.

Have a great day,

Franziska & the Devcon team
