- Number of teams that decide to build on Secret as a result of attendance.
While running events in Barcelona as part of Web3 Family, we usually get between 30 and 50 attendees.
The audience type depends on the type of event done, i.e. more devs come for more technical events, and more creatives come for NFT-focused events. We will tailor each workshop to meet the technical level of those we think will attend, based on our experience.
Our goal is to provide both practical education on how to use Secret Network & also increase consciousness of the importance of privacy in Web3. We would also love to craft a workshop events formula that can be exported & used by Secret Agents all over the world in their communities.
Founding member of Web3 Family, I have run dozens of events since 2018 as part of crypto communities. That includes GenesisDAO and FestDAO (of DAOstack), PolkaDAO, Ethereum Developer Meetup, Barcelona Blockchain Love, Crypto Kitchen, Ethereum Barcelona Association, and more.

Member of Web3 Family, Awareness Committee Lead at Secret Network. Growth Hacker at WhisperNode. Responsible for restructuring & growing the Secret Agents Program into a highly active worldwide crypto & privacy education tool.
We are both united in the belief that grassroots community education is the key to mass adoption and want to see Web3 constructed the right way: with protection, data sovereignty & privacy for new users.
Web3 Family is a Barcelona-based grassroots crypto community. We meet IRL, eat together, debate NFTs, Web3, shitcoins, bitcoin, eth2, cross-chain, DeFi, adoption, UX, and much more. Our community has 350+ members only after running 5 events over a couple of months. Our members have very diverse backgrounds ranging from total beginners to power users (hardcore crypto natives, degens, VC’s & more).
We promote the responsible adoption of a multichain Web3 paradigm via events that can take the form of presentations, debates, workshops, dinners, and more. We also act as a bridge between the different “family members” by connecting relevant people when they need it, for instance associating potential employers with potential employees, potential investors with potential investments, and so on.
We publish our events on meetup.com/Web3Family
