Ethereum Zurich Conference + Hackathon

14-16 April 2023 in Zurich, Switzerland


We’re bringing the Ethereum community to the most crypto-friendly country and the cradle of blockchain research!

Zürich is one of the last European cities that hasn’t had a major Ethereum-focused event despite its evident importance and the fact it’s home to numerous blockchain & Ethereum startups.

The event is both a hackathon and a conference, hosted at UZH – University of Zürich and co-organized by UZH Blockchain Center. We’ve prepared talks in the following tracks: Ethereum community, VMs & blockchain execution, Data availability, ZKP, Cryptography & Cyber security.


Similar to the conference, the hackathon aims to support the local crypto-friendly community, connect it with industry professionals and creation of new beneficial projects under the guidance of world-class judges, mentors and advisors.

The capacity of the hackathon will be approximately 200 hackers and fields of interest will be mainly from the following areas: Ethereum development, Virtual machines and blockchain execution, Zero-knowledge proofs, Data availability & security, Cryptography & academic research. The exact tracks will be announced a few weeks before the hackathon.

The hackathon will take place in an offline form only in order to ensure the best possible networking and cooperation. Voting on the quality of individual projects will not only be up to dedicated judges but will also be decided by the hackathon participants through quadratic voting. Hackathon is organized by UTXO Foundation.
