Two major events promoting Ethereum and blockchain technology are planned: a large-scale event in Mexico City and a hackathon in Bogotá, both aiming to educate on the safe use of blockchain, Ethereum ecosystem, Arbitrum, and Web3 tools. While the community generally supports these events, concerns have been raised about fiscal discipline, transparency, venue capacity, and the time left for organization and contribution.
The discussions revolve around two major events: a large-scale event in Mexico City in Q4 2023 to promote Ethereum and blockchain technology, and a hackathon in Bogotá facilitated by ETH Global and SEED Latam. Both events aim to educate individuals about the safe and effective use of blockchain technology, with a focus on the Ethereum ecosystem, Arbitrum, and Web3 tools. The events will include educational sessions, workshops, community gatherings, and collaborations with key stakeholders in the Ethereum ecosystem. The Mexico City event is organized by Ethereum Mexico and has a budget of $8,000 USD1,8,9,10,12,13,14,17.
The community is generally supportive of both events. Detailed information about the events and the teams behind them were provided by Brichis and Seedlatam1,8,9,10,12,13,14,17. However, there were concerns about fiscal discipline, transparency, the capacity of the venue, and the time left to organize and contribute to the events. These concerns were raised by Cryptopia, Khadati, and Axlvaz_SEEDLATAM.eth, and were addressed by Brichis3,7,9,10,11,13,15,16,24.
The events are expected to generate significant activity in the local Web3 scene and educate individuals about the safe and effective use of blockchain technology. The teams behind the events are composed of experienced professionals from various fields, and the events have already secured partnerships with key stakeholders in the Ethereum ecosystem. The events are designed to be budget-friendly, with tickets priced at less than $12 each, and around 200 tickets will be given away for free for some communities and students1,5,13,14,17.
There were some concerns about the denomination of the event's funding, which was clarified to be in ARB tokens5. There were also concerns about the capacity of the venue, noting that previous events had less than 100 attendees7. Concerns were raised about fiscal discipline, transparency, and the time left to organize and contribute to the events9,10,11,13,15,16. Additionally, Krst, representing the views of L2BEAT’s governance team, stated that they will be voting against the proposal, not due to the proposal itself, but because of the channel through which it's being pursued22.
