ETHGlobal is a thriving community of developers, builders, investors, and community leaders. As the usage of blockchain technology grows, the world is going to need more talented engineers, designers, and product leaders to build the future that blockchain technology is promising. We work with exactly these kinds of people every single day through the products and events we organize for our community. Our goal: Scaling Ethereum and onboarding more people for the crypto-native digital economy of the future.
Borderless is a movement to create an open and permissionless internet to power Africa's economy. They bring to Africa, global Web3 leaders, and nurture African founder communities.
If you have been following our recent content, you will notice we have been deliberate on L2s. This is because L2s are the future. they help scale blockchains and bring them to the masses. We intend to continue driving education and information about L2s across Africa as a way of creating more awareness and helping Africans adopt the technology and also build solutions to solve problems in Africa leveraging L2 technologies.
