2019 has been a big year for DGOV Foundation. We had our official launch in January 2019, and have grown exponentially from there. We now have a thriving community of 200+ who engage in meaningful debate, respectful dialogue, collaborate on projects together, and meet in person to build connection.

This summer we have been working towards the DGOV hacker node at Web3 Summit in Berlin Blockchain Week. Now we are excited to present our very exciting line up, curated by the core team and mainly consisting of our community.
