We are organizing a one-day event on Saturday 29th July as part of the zkWeek (Zcon4 and ZKProof 5.5) in Barcelona. It has been conceived as a new concept of conference in cryptography, featuring a treasure hunt, inspiring conversations, intimate tutorials and experiences around human connection, the impact of cryptography in society and intentionality around building in the space.
There will be both cryptographic sessions for interacting uniquely around technical content, mostly focused on ZKP, and the experiential sessions will be aligned with the main story line of the event.
We are excited to work with the ZF to make this event happen during zkweek.
We have submitted a proposal for the ZCG to become a sponsor to the event, which would allow to cover costs of the venue, production and staff. The grant would enable us to give more scholarships to those who need it. You can find all the info on the proposal itself
Please let us know what you think about it!
And if you are interested in coming to the event or helping out in any way, let us know
The grant would enable us to give more scholarships to those who need it.
The grant doesn’t explicitly mention anything on scholarships?
Hey @pkr thanks for the question!
We do mention that
- Since the event is tied to Zcon4, this sponsorship would allow us to bring many of the Zcon4 / Zcash participants with a scolarship (currently more limited).
Also, in the ticket sale we have a second ticket type that allows people to purchase a second ticket that would cover the cost of someone who can benefit from it.
If you have specific questions or ideas, happy to hear them!
Oh, I was looking for “scholarship”. My mistake.
I think an interactive session is unique and interesting, but I am not so sure about ambiguous scholarships.
If anything ZCG should be the ones in charge of granting scholarships (if at all).
I love this initiative. It would be great to have the opportunity to attend this event.
Hi all, thank you for the replies!
Wondering if the ZGC has made any decision on this yet?
Happy to jump on a call to dicuss details if needed.
Thank you in advance!
Hey @LeCryptoMath, Please check your forum DMs
@LeCryptoMath, ZCG has voted to approve this sponsorship.
