Welcome back #BUIDLers! Applications for ETHDenver 2020 are officially live here on Devfolio for developers, creatives, volunteers, speakers and all other breed of Bufficorns. We also have exciting news to share about ETHDenver’s evolution and some fun experiences planned for 2020, in our Medium Post here.

For newcomers, we’re excited to welcome you to ETHDenver, the largest Web3 #BUIDLathon in the world (formerly known as a hackathon). Ethereum and other blockchain protocol enthusiasts, designers and developers converge on the mile high city to #BUIDL the decentralized future. ETHDenver is free to attend; however, must apply, and be accepted, in advance.

Our 3-day weekend-long event is a nonstop, 24 hours a day, innovation marathon and is alive with a wide variety of activities. From talks and workshops by top blockchain influencers/experts to tech-art exhibitions, we have a futuristic experience for everyone.

The purpose of ETHDenver 2020 is to contribute to the global blockchain ecosystem, whether by #BUIDLing decentralized applications (dApps), contributing to infrastructure development projects, writing documentation/tutorials/white-papers, designing UI/UX, or info-graphics. So bring your inner awesomeness and some friends. We’ll provide mentors, resources, and provisions. Check out the schedule, FAQ’s and more info to help plan your trip at

ETHDenver 2020 Application

The ETHDenver crew is continually working to integrate community tools and “dog food” decentralized tech. This year we’re launching our attendance application through our friends at Devfolio, in partnership with Fortmatic. Your Fortmatic identity will serve as your ticket and engagement point throughout the event. Stay tuned for more on how this will work throughout the ecosytems.

Please note that Devfolio was originally designed for #BUIDLathon/hackathon events. While a few lines of the canned verbiage focuses on developers, note that we are excited to welcome diverse intelligences and all varieties of Bufficorns regardless of technological expertise.

On the first page of the application, we will ask how you wish to participate in the event. Please indicate any and all appropriate selections, even if you don’t intend to #BUIDL a project. If you need help along the way, don’t be shy! You can find us on Telegram, Twitter or [email protected]. We look forward to hearing your feedback on the new application experience!

How to Apply:

  1. Click the blue “Apply with Devfolio” button above and the system will assist you in creating a Fortmatic blockchain ID.

  3. Once complete, complete the ‘Profile’ tab on the next page.
  4. After your ‘Profile’ shows 100% complete, visit the ‘Hackathons’ tab to formally submit your ETHDenver application as an individual or team (you can change later). Your application is submitted and complete after this step.
