The goal of BUIDL is to encourage developers, technologists, cypher punks, coders, crypto-economists, designers, makers, and the like to join in and BUIDL.
As a completely off-topic observation, no one really knows WHY crypto people can’t spell HODL or BUIDL correctly… I mean HOLD or BUILD.
While work on ETH 2.0 is underway, there is a large number of community members who are committed to BUIDLing the decentralized future. The event will bring together like minded individuals who are devs and enthusiasts around a common purpose.
When Ethereum was launched, Buterin was building a global computer.
What to expect at BUIDL
Distributed computing is the future, according to devs at ETH and Colorado is a leading community supporting this emerging technology. The 3-day event is open 24-hours a day with a wide variety of activities including talks and workshops by top blockchain influencers and experts.
There will be work on infrastructure level projects, writing documentation/tutorials/white-papers, designing UI/UX, or info-graphics. There will be mentors, resources, and provisions.
The event currently has 3000 participants, and its goal is to provide opportunities for learning and connections.
There are similar meetups like Boulder Blockchain, Ethereum Boulder, and Rocky Mountain Blockchain. All of these events have several registrations. On its website, the ETH community clearly states that the #BUIDL meme was introduced formally to the ETH community at ETHDenver; the community’s response to Bitcoin’s HODL.
While HODLing is important, #buidling (aka building) is much more important. Why? Because without building there will be no innovation and no decentralized future. HODLing may simply be vanity, BUIDLing is much more than that.
In general, hackathons are a great technological experience but this is going to be a developer’s gathering.
As a part of the schedule, BUIDLathon participants will hack open repos and sponsor companies will offer bounties after successful completion. Repos will be listed no more than 3 days before the #BUIDLathon begins.
All prizes will be funded by company listing repos and the bounties offered to winners will range from $500-$10,000 USD each. Participants will be in teams and they are encouraged to work on any project of their choice.
There are no existing projects that would be considered in it and this will be a fair playing field for all.
The contest will recognize the top projects in dApps, tools & infrastructure. The top 5 projects will share a prize pool of a minimum of $15,000, mostly in ETH equivalent.
Participants will submit projects that qualify, as a part of the contest.
