Layer 1 Protocol
Ethereum Roadmap, core protocol upgrades and improvements, design decisions and tradeoffs, impact of MEV, core protocol values and their importance.
Pushing Ethereum's boundaries: more throughput, a farther reach, and more functionality. What are ways to enable Ethereum to scale, handle transactions faster, and for building bridges with other technologies? Anything rollup-related, wallets and other L2-enabling technologies, applications that take advantage of them, etc.
Tooling and other efforts to make it easier, more fun, and more appealing to build on Ethereum. Languages, libraries, frameworks, dev tooling, best practices, etc.
Governance & Coordination
How can we empower people to coordinate, manage common resources and make positive-sum decisions together? DAOs, decentralized governance, etc.
UX & Design
Let’s create a more intuitive, safe and delightful experience for users of Ethereum and its applications! Design, UI, product-market fit, marketing, etc.
Staking & Validator Experience
Home staking, distributed validator technology, pooling, decentralization improvements, protocol design, and everything in between.
Making Ethereum easy, safe, and more secure for end-users. DApp security, data privacy, identity, key management, etc.
ZKPs: Privacy, Identity, Infrastructure, & More
The potential of zero knowledge cryptography and its applications to privacy, digital identity, decentralized systems, and more.
Opportunity & Global Impact
How can Ethereum change the world for the better? Public goods, sustainability, politics, P2P finance, impact of NFTs, micro-lending, financial systems, identity, emerging markets, environment, communication and censorship, access, etc.
Research in game theory, mechanism design and tokenomics for protocols and applications.
