ETHDam 2023, a shelling event for Financial Freedom and Privacy


  • ETHDam is a hackathon & conference gathering 800 DeFi and Privacy builders on the 20th and 21st of May in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. We are delighted to welcome thought leaders from Polygon, Curve, Aave, Balancer, Dune, MakerDAO and many more.
  • Never seen before, an ?All Stars Track? a champions league for previous ETH hackathon winners to keep them building. These experienced hackers will start earlier and present a more polished product on the main stage.
  • Privacy is normal. Following the arrest of Alex Pertsev, a Tornado Cash developer in the Netherlands, ETHDam 2023 is determined to counter the chilling effect and bridge worlds to discuss the future of privacy and encourage them to build on the shoulders of cypherpunk giants.
  • Update: Alex has been released under house arrest, and he will be able to make it to ETHDam.
  • ETHDam is powered by CryptoCanal, a crypto education and events platform growing in Amsterdam, spreading its roots to Rotterdam and Zurich.

All Stars Track ??

The All Stars Track is a never done or seen before hackathon track, a champions league if you will, of experienced hackers, runner ups and winners of past ETH hackathons.

We want to inspire hackers to keep building. If they?ve won a track in the past, they collect the win, but many drop the project the moment real life hits. How many great ideas have gone wasted?

We want to resuscitate those teams, give them time to build on top of their past winning projects starting 19th of April, and give them an opportunity to present a polished product on the main stage of ETHDam on the 21st of May. Only one team member is needed IRL.

Although this track has no bounties, ETHDam provides support of knowledgable mentors, valuable advice and an access to a pool of investors.
