Challenge

We wanted to bring Ethereum Foundation’s vision of an infinite garden to life in the garden city of Singapore. That meant creating a space where developers in the Ethereum space could connect and build, cultivating a vibrant ecosystem and empowering groundbreaking projects.

Solution

AngelHack partnered with Ethereum Foundation and other key stakeholders to launch Ethereum Singapore, a 3-day external hackathon designed to attract top talent – regardless of where they are.

Impact

  • Unleashing Innovation: 420+ developers and innovators participated, forming 120 diverse hackathon teams. This resulted in a surge of creative ideas, with projects tackling various challenges across DeFi, NFTs, scalability solutions, and more.
  • Global Reach: The hackathon transcended geographical boundaries, attracting developers from over 10+ countries and fostering cross-cultural collaboration and knowledge exchange. This diversity enriched the problem-solving approaches and broadened the Ethereum ecosystem’s reach.
  • Industry-Leading Exposure: Participants gained invaluable insights from conference talks featuring Ethereum’s co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, and industry leaders from Coinbase, Google Cloud, and Arbitrum. This direct access to expert knowledge and potential partners empowered teams to refine their projects and prepare for future success.
  • Community Building: This external hackathon catalyzed community building, with developers establishing connections, sharing ideas, and long-term collaborations. This fostered a supportive and vibrant ecosystem where innovation can thrive.
