From Start to Finish: The Story of ETHforAll


ETHforAll, the eighth ETHIndia Online Hackathon, has been nothing short of an incredible journey! Thousands of builders worldwide joined forces to build on Ethereum for the greater good. And we received a whopping 400+ projects. Of course, we couldn't have done it without our incredible partners, whose unwavering support, mentorship, and prize pool of over $70,000 made this event a huge success.

Get ready to relive all the fantastic moments because we're taking you down memory lane to revisit the epic moments that made this event so exceptional!!

🛫 ETHforAll Kick Off

We kicked off the hackathon on Feb 4, 2023, at an in-person event in collaboration with the Government of Telangana in Telangana's very own T-Hub. Joining us were our special guests, Jayesh Ranjan — IAS, Telangana State Innovation Cell, and Rama Devi Lanka — Head of Emerging Technologies Wing, Govt. of Telangana, industry experts, and passionate builders from all over.

The Devfolio team signed an MoU with the Telangana Government.

The event featured a keynote by Jayesh Ranjan, and panel discussions on Public Goods and Governance. Then we witnessed some stellar project showcases by the ETHIndia Grantees, Sadaiv, AI Mint, Social3, and Stackr Labs. And after an already exciting day, we had even more fun at a sundowner, networking and living it up!

Our partner workshops helped the builders get interesting insights about their platforms and how to tailor them to suit their Dapp and bag those bounties 💰

ETHforAll Mentorship Metaverse

We created a unique ETHforAll Metaverse exclusively for our hackers to develop the offline hackathon experience; and were happy to see the builders enjoying it to the fullest.

Live Quadratic Voting

As we mentioned earlier, we conducted our first-ever Quadratic Voting on Devfolio during ETHforAll, and it was indeed a blast! We received 350+ attestations, with the builders winning a piece of the $10,000 QV Matching Pool.

The Devfolio team conducted a live Quadratic Voting session with Kautuk Kundan, from Stackr Labs, and QEDK, from Polygon.
