As the Ethereum ecosystem continues to grow and mature at break-neck speeds, we continue to work hard on delivering an amazing Devcon 6. Though the timing is still unclear as to when we’ll all be able to reunite in Bogota, we want to keep our community involved along the Road to Devcon! In an effort to do this, we’re announcing Road to Devcon Quests!
What are Quests?
Road to Devcon Quests are periodic engagements for our community to continually collaborate, contribute, and learn. For each Quest, you’ll have the opportunity to earn a POAP badge representing your participation — see how many you can collect!
Kicking off Quests with EthStaker
To kick off the first of these Quests, we’ve decided to team up with the EthStaker Community for a series of fun online events on the Road to Devcon.
The EthStaker community is no stranger to the Ethereum ecosystem. They’ve become one of the canonical communities for Ethereum staking. The EthStaker crew regularly hosts events to help educate the community with the goal of lowering the technical barrier to entry in addition to welcoming more people into the world of solo and pooled staking.
The excitement of Devcon has inspired the EthStaker community to host two online events to compete for bragging rights, POAPs, and Devcon tickets. Each event listed below is open for anyone to participate, and the more you participate, the more chances you will have to win a ticket to Devcon.
Painting Party: 29 May, 2021
POAP.art is the newest experiment by POAP, and it sits at the intersection of art and technology. POAP.art is an interactive digital canvas that allows artists of all skill levels to collaborate with one another, to make original pieces of pixel art, and mint them as NFTs effectively cementing your art digitally on the blockchain forever.
The POAP.art canvas will be open for anyone to use for 1-hour during a livestream on YouTube. While you’re dropping pixels, we will be hearing from Devcon and EthStaker community members providing lite commentary while we watch the canvas fill up.
In order to participate, you will just need to be present during the Livestream and obtain your ‘Painting Party Viewer’ POAP, which grants you access to the POAP.art Canvas. All who are present during the Painting Party Livestream will receive this POAP, and all who drop at least one pixel on the POAP.art canvas will receive a ‘Painting Party Pixel Dropper’ POAP.
Following the Painting Party the EthStaker crew will host a double-header POAP.fun Raffle. Round 1 is eligible to those who hold any past Devcon POAPs, or who is an Beacon Chain Genesis Depositor. Round 2 is eligible to those who hold the Painting Party Viewer or Pixel Dropper POAP. Winners of the raffles will secure participant seats for the following Devcon Trivia Game.
Devcon Trivia Game: 10 July, 2021
Trivia Games are a staple within the EthStaker community and are an incredibly fun experience. All are welcome to participate during the Livestream Play-Along hosted on the EthStaker website, while those who won Trivia Game seats compete against each other in a live Trivia Game played using the Kahoot! platform. Participants are asked a series of questions ranging from general Ethereum knowledge, Devcon history, and everything in between.
The participant with the highest scores will win tickets to Devcon and bragging rights. There will be four available POAPs for this event; the viewer, the Play-Along participant, participant, and the winner.
