Community Hub Proposal: Decentralised Storage


This proposal is created to gather the different voices in the decentralised storage space at Devcon. Overall, we are small compared to AWS and other Web2 vendors, so it would be great to gather everyone around a table.

All decentralised storage providers and anyone who needs hosting in the web3 space are invited to participate and show how and where their solutions fit best. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for web storage.

So, in this space you will be able to:

  1. exchange ideas with different providers of decentralised storage.
  2. ask for support for your project, your initiative and what can be done for your project, today
  3. look at nodes, miners and hardware needed to run and participate in the web3 infrastructure
  4. collect stickers if someone gives some…


We assume that these people have a special interest:

  • Artists and content creators who want to keep their creative works safe.
  • Hardware geeks interested in running web3’s nodes, hardware and infrastructure.
  • Developers looking for alternative solutions to make their services unstoppable.
  • Privacy advocates who want to know everything about their data and where it is.
  • Free speech advocates who are concerned about censorship in the web2 world.

From past experiences in ETHCC, there is demand and people questioned in Paris, for instance, how to support freedom of information.

Programming and activities

We would like to contact and bring together the most active names in this industry so that we can share challenges and the market situation in a friendly atmosphere and offer support to participants.

Demos and workshops will be arranged once space is confirmed. The predictable ones are “let me help you spin a XYZ node”, "let me help you host your image in web3, “let me host your blog on a decentralised storage, etc.”.

  1. ad hoc meeting corner: this is where you meet the various solutions that are the daily focus.
  2. resource garden: here you can see the different solutions in action (demos).
  3. learning table: here specialists help all interested people to make their solution work
  4. hardware world: here you can see different nodes and setups to make the solutionswork
  5. Hiring boards


Our plan is to create a horizontal place where no particular solution is preferred over another: All decentralised storage solutions serve different purposes with different characteristics.

We expect the coolest projects to participate in this joint effort towards making web2-storage a thing of the past.

We will require:

Sitting furniture
Power outlets
1 TV-sized screen we can connect to via HDMI cable


Hi! Thank you for handing in this proposal @tonytony!

I just wanted to give you an update on the general process forward: 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.

Hello, I hope the RP is still available. I am part of the team of a large scale Decentralized storage protocol. The way of collaboration was not very clear to me but I would like to know the process of the proposal and the way of participation. I will be very attentive to any comment and from now on you can count on us to be present at the Devcon

hi @tonytony & @franzihei if you have any update will be interesting to know it.

In this ocassion CESS protocol ( would be a great solution for this topic. Let me know how to grow up this proposal.


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
