Blockchain Education and Implementation of Cryptocurrencies, NFTs, DeFi, and Social Tokens
We encourage participation from our student hackers with different interests, we strive to bring fresh new perspectives to the table and stimulate innovative thinking. We hope to start important conversations, spark innovation, and most importantly, bring like-minded people together to work towards a better future.
The purpose of this program is to help you learn about Blockchain and related decentralized technologies in a self-driven way. While all sorts of discussion will be welcome, the primary focus of this program is the technology behind Ethereum and blockchains more broadly, rather than price speculation.
Every week, you will spend ~ 2-10 hours learning and building with us. Most of these will be unstructured and asynchronous learning time where you will be able to dive deep into space.
Weekly ~ 45m group office hours with your mentor: time for you to ask questions about things you've read or been working on, and to brainstorm ideas for a project.
Talks by figures in the Ethereum ecosystem twice a week
Occasional group hangouts and social events on BitCamp Zoom
Discussion groups led by program mentors or guest speakers
Workshops run by various specialists in the ETH ecosystem
Project mentorship from preeminent builders in the space
What timezone is the program events going to be run from?
The events in the ETH Summer program will be scheduled around the US Pacific Time (PT). To make sure you are able to enjoy the program events, please make sure that you will be able to attend events organized on this timezone.
Is there any costs associated to the program?
BitCamp is completely free to those who are accepted. We are able to do this thanks to the generous support from BitLabs. During the program, we will also provide you with some ETH that you can use to experiment with applications on Ethereum and other blockchains.
How much should I know about crypto/blockchain to join this program?
We are open to beginners who are just starting to learn about crypto/blockchain. That said, for you to be able to go through the program effectively, there is going to be some expectation of general familiarity over the subject.
If you have no prior experience, we will recommend you to go through a pre-reading phase using ETH Spring resources before the program to help you get up to speed.
