About Us

OFFDevcon is everything that’s happening outside of Ethereum Devcon. It’s a community initiative to promote the other blockchain events during the week(s) and offer an alternative for people that don’t have a ticket.

Organised for the first time in 2018 in Prague, this 'off-conference' focusses on bringing together the entire blockchain community and turning the spotlight on other projects, funds, events, workshops, and more.

We’re trying to show that the community is about more than just ETH, and everyone is welcome to celebrate that.

What We're Doing

To get as many people and organisations involved, we've built a recognisable brand; the most active community around Ethereum Devcon on Twitter and Telegram; designed an events calendar and spreadsheet people actually like to use, and keep the community informed through our announcement channel, Twitter, conference guides on Medium and 24-hour community management on Telegram. To keep people engaged we set up a crypto scavenger hunt called Yosegi.

To kickstart a movement that became a 100+ events in Osaka, we took the initiative to host a Karaoke Pub Crawl, Post-Conference Rooftop Drinks, DeFi Dinner, Fundraising in 2020 event, and the main OFFDevcon party.

Non of this would have been possible without the help of our sponsors (listed below), but we'd like to stress that this is a community initiative put together by voluntary work. All proceeds have gone to making this happen.
