Q2 delivery update

Welcome to W3PN report time 🦿- we will cover activities across our community from the Prague Summit to the Hackathon use-case generator.

Ecosystem touch

We actively work on privacy advocacy across many verticals from delivering “l2beat for privacy” to events. Ecosystem thinking helps to understand our goals better.


Some people think we are an event-centric community. It’s just partially true. This year we tripled the amount of events - from meetups to summits.

  • Amsterdam - meetup, talks, jury & paneling at ETHDam

  • Berlin - meetup & Privacy corner experience at ETHBerlin

  • Prague - summit & jury at ETHPrague

This model will enable us to give back to contributors and scale effectively while maintaining our independence and neutrality.

Hackathon use-case generator

Many hackers come to hackathons without any ideas. Sometimes they build tools for fun, partially they are useless as further products. Why not solve this pain point?

Hackathon use-case generator will help to create hundreds of privacy-focused ideas to hack.

Have you witnessed that there’s no agnostic Privacy 101 course? We are currently delivering one: first curating existing content, & later making original W3PN content and lectures.

Aim: empower all with accessible and digestible knowledge - no matter how technical / experienced they are, this will be curated so to enable anyone to easily find and explore info at their own pace and based on their curiosity.
