Hackathon Curation Pack

Hacker Manuals & Privacy Guidelines to help the builders deliver practical privacy-enhancing projects, turn them into products, & scale being sustainable. To showcase and distribute during privacy events worldwide.


Current idea

context: we were actively participating in hackathons core at ETHRome & core at ETHDam, judging & speaking, making Privacy Corner at ETHBerlin.

We understood that many people came into privacy after Tornado Cash case or Vitalik promoting privacy solutions & cypherpunk spirit. But hackers don’t get privacy in the bigger context

  • surveillance capitalism business models
  • centralization of knowledge
  • proprietary software etc.

idea: we want to come up with “acceleration”/“incubation” umbrella helping devs to reach product-market-fit (read: long-lasting sustainability; example: Rotki, based on Gitcoin, retro grants, reputation).


  • make meaningful privacy-solutions -> so accidental in privacy people will do not a dead code
  • build sustainable privacy projects -> turn hackathon demos into products that will stay
  • re-wire crypto funds into value alligned hands -> match conscious devs with good mentors, grant programs etc
