Hi there! CyberConnect is a decentralized protocol for constructing blockchain address-based social graphs. We democratize social connections and make social graphs self-sovereign, portable, composable, blockchain-agnostic, and contextually meaningful. If you like what we are building, make sure to play around our site, subscribe to this newsletter, check out our Mirror, and follow us on Twitter.
Hello there, beloved frens. Wenyi here writing to you this time. I lead BD at CyberConnect. As I write this opening paragraph from my iPhone since I left my laptop charger in Denver after a bender of a week, I smile from reminiscing on the good times our team had at ETHDenver.
What a week!
An estimated 10,000 visitor inflow into Denver puts this at the top of my all-time conference list in terms of size and sheer talent. Every single day, I picked the brains of incredibly bright and kind people from all kinds of backgrounds - Web2 devs looking to get into Web3, artists with published records on Catalogue, OG whales with risk appetites of sharks’ who got into the space in 2011, veteran devs and founders of foundational Web3 infrastructure, undergrad kids launching their own Web3 project even though they’re not old enough to drink… To say that ETHDenver for Web3 dwellers is the modern equivalent of Gatsby’s parties to his lucky invitees is an understatement. Seriously in need of a Marie Kondo for my telegram after the week’s worth of meeting new people.
In addition to new frens, we also finally met up in real life with our long-time frens at partner projects whom we’ve been talking to on Zoom! Our team co-hosted a happy hour with the lovely people of Ceramic, DEIP, and Lit Protocol, which was indeed a Lit time. Some frens in attendance included teams from Snickerdoodle, Parsiq, etc.
Keep an eye out for offline CyberConnect in the future. Word on the street is that we’re in the mood to party ;).
Meanwhile, for those of you who had to miss out on meeting us offline, catch us on Twitter. Our DMs are always open. Co-founder @ryanli_me, BD Lead @weny1_official Community Lead @PiSofaEth, and Content Lead @yillan_h

Please read on for our regular updates from the past few weeks.
We have had another successful Hackathon. The Gitcoin SPV Hackathon has now officially closed and the bounties have been distributed. In total, we have 20 teams and 27 people participated, we received 12 contest submissions and gave out $6000 for the bounty prize!
For this hackathon, we had two tasks. The first task is about building a social connection radar web app based on the CyberConnect connections dataset. The second is to build any dApp based on CyberConnect, with DAO and feed functions suggested.
We were really impressed by the quality and creative spirit of this round’s submissions. To single out a few winning projects here. Go have a play on their apps.
For more details regarding all qualified submissions and our bounty distribution, please check the following report: CyberConnect Gitcoin SPV Hackathon Report

We have our new developer center site up and running! We’ve also updated our developer docs to streamline the integration process. Learn about our clearly laid-out Introduction to CyberConnect, Docs, API Integration, Showcase, Community Updates, and Code Resources.
The new Developer Center is the first part of CyberConnect’s ongoing initiative to level up our support for a global open-source and developer-friendly community. We are constantly working on it. Expect more developer stories, partner showcases, tech writings, and community events.
Should you have any problems building with CyberConnect, this should be your go-to place for official resources. We hope it helps. Check it out here: docs.cyberconnect.me
And please don’t hold back any suggestions you might have regarding the site or the community in general. We make extra effort to ensure that every feedback counts and we have a contribution logging system for it. Feedback can be submitted here.
We have yet another great project built by our community. And we are more than proud and honored.
Let there be "Light", a metaverse explorer where users can discover, connect, and earn based on wallet activity. In simple words, Light is a decentralized Identity Protocol, a social Layer for DAOs, and a Web3 Native Facebook built on top of CyberConnect.
If you’re a builder who’s interested in building with us, join our Discord server and head over to the #Developer channel, and introduce yourself!
There will be 24/7 tech support by top developers from CyberConnect's global offices. Join the discussion, talk to us at our regular community calls, and never miss any community initiatives.
We are also working on some starter projects and tutorials. Stay tuned and get in touch if you have any suggestions.
We are also actively looking for some dev evangelists to help us build this strong and vibrant dev community. See more details here Developer Evangelist
