I am doing my masters thesis on ZK in the EVM ecosystem. I also am a project founder that focuses on validating skills using AI and issuing credentials as SBTs on an EVM chain (Ethereum compatible). I hope to meet more builders to grow my team or users/angel investors so I can go into this project fulltime as soon as I graduate from school.

I want to meet really cool people and see how the ecosystem is since the last Ethereum event I went to. I also want to hack along with others and expand my relationships with like-minded individuals in the industry.

I am superrrr excited about this conference! As a dev, I'm excited for networking with the twitter anons that'll be there. As a founder I'm even more excited because I am looking for funding in two ventures. The first is a non-profit (@aztechkidzcode) I started that teaches students how to code blockchain. And the other for is for the growth of our defi start up called Superseed! (more about superseed in the startup-question section.)

I attended ETHDenver last year and it was incredibly value for me in learning more about the newest technologies in web3 and blockchain. I also would like to hack on something related to public goods, lending protocols and would like to meet other builders and founders and hackers in the Ethereum ecosystem. I was a Devcon Scholar awarded by the Ethereum Foundation in October 2022 and this exposed me to so many cool projects in the ecosystem. Attending for ETHDenver would be super valuable for me and would provide an opportunity for in person networking and building.

Crypto has been a wonderful chance to hone my skills. When I'm doing things in Solidity, that means I'm honing my skills for Web 3 development.

I have been intrigued by the creativity in the NFT and Metaverse space. My next major career goal is to transition to this blockchain industry and find my own niche in the space.

Chase Blakely

Over the past year I've seriously fallen in love with the possibilities of blockchain! So much so that 2 months ago I started building a NFT project with my roommate. I spent a couple weeks diving into blockchain development using my computer science background and realized I could really build something with this!

Daniel Dogby

In my work to promote blockchain technology among my students, the relation with BEN (Blockchain Education Network) has been an invaluable resource. BEN provides support for students in a form of conference travel, tickets, organizes hackathons, and so much more.

I believe that BEN helps me to actually have an experience and networking opportunity that furthers my interest & potential project ideas I'd be interested in!

If everyone worked with top blockchain-based technology & finance, the world would change fundamentally.

Huge thanks to BEN (Blockchain Education Network) for sponsoring us to attend this conference and their guidance as we build our blockchain ecosystem at Purdue University.

I plan to bring back all the knowledge I learn to the Northeastern Blockchain Club and The Gateway to Blockchain as we launch a second entrepreneurship program this summer and launch other immersive programs.

Drew Cousin

I'm certain that as time goes by the masses will be able to see the advantages of having decentralized organizations and government, and knowing how to create/manage DAOs and make smart contracts will be a must. Being able to learn all this useful information through a conference in Miami that BEN was able to put together is amazing! I can't wait to go and learn as much as I can!

Thomas is a student from Sabanci University who travel from Turkey to Lisbon to attend Solana Breakpoint and Cosmoverse Conference. In this series of events he met people from outside of Turkey for the first time where he recorded podcast and met with potential leaders/employers in the industry.

Finally, I have never been to Miami and meeting with other students from BEN will enable me to connect and forge relationships with other like-minded individuals whole accelerating my career. In short, I look forward to leveraging this unique opportunity to expand my horizons. Having the ability to network with incredible people in the same space will enable me to hear more about the web3/defi community.

I started studying blockchain technology as a minor in 2019. Under my leadership, Blockchain@USC has grown to a total member of more than 300 students and has become the hub of Southern California's blockchain innovations.

I was fortunate enough to hear about the BEN team. The BEN team educates the youth and demonstrates why blockchain is the future, and for that I am thankful to potentially have this opportunity.

Ryan Jones

I hope this conference will inspire new ideas for business models as I return to Duke to work on our capstone project, which tasks us with presenting a new blockchain venture to professors, students, and outside professionals. This is a great time to step back from learning autodidactically to open my ears to others' ideas, conceptualize the big picture of what is possible, and practice articulating to others why blockchain could be useful and even necessary to solve real-world problems.

William Blakeley

Duke University
I'm particularly excited to get insight to the world of NFTs and the industry that surrounds it. My colleagues and I at Purdue have a very technical experience with web3. The industry is much more broad than that and where the really exciting projects show up is at intersections between web3 and other industries.

Donating Crypto

Tax Benefits of donating crypto

    If you donate crypto directly to the 501(c)(3) nonprofits, not only you don’t have to pay tax on the capital gains, you can also get a full amount of deductions for what crypto is worth on the date of donation. Find more information on our guide here:

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are there any limitations on the deductions of donations on the individual tax returns?

A: You can't deduct contributions of your time or services, or any part of a contribution from which you benefit. You can only deduct up to 30% of your Adjusted Gross Income on the tax return.

Q: Can a US corporation donate to 503(c)(3) and get a tax deduction?

A: Yes, US corporations can contribute to the nonprofits and get deductions on their business tax return as well. A corporation’s charitable contribution deduction generally may not exceed 10 percent of its taxable income. The limit is increased to 25 percent for qualified contributions made in cash for calendar-year 2020.

Q: How would individuals outside the U.S potentially benefit from tax benefits or any incentives.

A: For example for Canadian citizens that would like to donate. If the foreign person is required to file a US tax return, he/she can deduct the donations on the tax return as well. If there is a tax treaty between the US and the foreign country, the treaty may allow you to deduct the donations on your foreign tax return. For example, the income tax treaty between the Canada and U.S. allows Candian citizens/ residents to claim a donation tax credit for donations made to eligible U.S. charities on the Canadian tax return.
