Ethcon Korea

Ethcon Korea 2023 is the premier Ethereum developer conference in South Korea, sponsored by the Ethereum Foundation. It will take place from September 1 to September 3, 2023, at Platz2 (플라츠2) in Seoul, a cozy and spacious co-working space in the heart of the city.

The event will feature a keynote speech by Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, who will share the latest updates and future plans for the Ethereum project. It will also showcase presentations by developers from around the world, who will share their innovative research and projects in the Ethereum and Web3 space.

Ethcon Korea 2023 is a non-commercial, volunteer-driven event, supported by the Ethereum Foundation to foster knowledge sharing and collaboration among the developer community. It is the largest developer event in Korea, attracting talent from both local and global scenes.

The event will also host a three-day hackathon, where developers can work on new ideas and projects, and present them at a live-streamed demo day. The hackathon will use Quadratic Funding, a democratic funding and evaluation method for public goods, proposed by Vitalik and implemented by Gitcoin. Quadratic Funding combines votes from judges, sponsors, and attendees to allocate resources based on their contribution and support.

Ethcon Korea 2023 is open for submissions for proposals and talks until July 18. The event aims to include a diverse range of active researchers and developers, with the main goal of learning from each other and advancing the Ethereum ecosystem.

Ethcon Korea 2023 is part of the Korea Blockchain Week 2023, a Web3 conference organized by FactBlock and Hashed, which will run from September 4 to September 10.
