Giveth House
Welcome to the Giveth House! 🦄A beautiful home, office, and community space located in Barcelona. The Giveth House has been available since 2017 to accommodate the greater Giveth community. When Giveth was founded in 2016, we knew it would be important to have a physical space to help facilitate the growth of Giveth. We also wanted the Giveth house to give the greater Web3 community a real location for events, gatherings, coworking, hack sessions and just a place to rest your weary head.Why Barcelona? Impassioned by first hand experiences of the Catalan struggle for independence, Giveth founders wanted to establish a local haven that represents freedom of thought and choice, and serve as a physical space to exercise that freedom. We are open to and inclusive of all walks of life that have equality, safety, comradery, freedom from tyranny, hierarchy and subservience in their philosophy. Until now we have sustained the Giveth House successfully through a revenue stream that has unfortunately recently diminished due to changes in the Ethereum network and market. We are asking for the support of the community at large to keep this wonderful IRL solar punk nexus alive!Centrally located near Plaça d'Espanya with easy access throughout the city and beach, the Giveth House welcomes anyone in the blockchain4good ecosystem who needs a place to stay, work or just hang out while in town. We want the space eventually to grow into an increasingly dynamic and regenerative locale where we can hold events for the different projects and become a strategic point to exchange ideas, create, and contribute to the community.Please support the Giveth House and help us maintain this gentle and warm, and open-door safe haven for the solar punk community that connects the greater Giveth ecosystem!

GRACEaid Earthquake relief
GRACEaid fundraising to support earthquake relief in Turkey & Syria...Early Monday morning, on the 6th Feb, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck the region around Gaziantep, Turkey and north-west Syria. This was followed by an aftershock of 7.5 later in the day, causing further devastation. At the time of writing, the death toll is estimated at more than 15,000 and continues to rise.Rescuers dig through rubble in snow and freezing temperatures to search for survivors. In Syria, the situation is exacerbated by a lack of infrastructure and an ongoing cholera outbreak after more than a decade of uprising and conflict.In recent years, North-West Syria has become one of the hardest places to reach with only one aid corridor from Turkey. Gaziantep, at the quake’s epicentre, is an important UN aid hub for northern Syria and the earthquake has disrupted the vital flow of cross-border aid.GRACEaid is launching this appeal to support two established and experienced NGOs providing assistance in Turkey and Syria: Ahbap and Molham Team to provide immediate humanitarian needs and the necessities they lack to lessen suffering in aftermath.Photograph: Gaziantep, Turkey: Anadolu Agency/Getty ImagesAbout GRACEaidAlerted by the suffering of everyday people, arriving on the shores of Greece fleeing war and persecution and the terrible conditions in the infamous Calais Jungle, GRACEaid grew from a grassroots community effort in south-east London in 2015, providing basic daily necessities,such as clothing, food and shelter.GRACEaid has helped thousands of people get access to basic supplies when they need it most; both internationally and at the heart of the local community.GRACEaid now has an established presence in the local community running a community shop and warehouse to support people displaced by war, persecution and trafficking.Thanks to the Giveth platform, GRACEaid was an early adopter in the use of crypto for fundraising by humanitarian aid charities and NGOs. A registered charity in the UK, GRACEaid has harnessed the compassion and support of the London community and donors globally.Thank-you for your support! Reg:1169544graceaid.org.ukhttps://twitter.com/GRACERefugeeAidhttps://www.facebook.com/GRACErefugeeaidhttps://www.instagram.com/gracerefugeeaid/

Free Solidity Development Course in Farsi
Update: Over 20 hours of our Solidity course is now online for free and has more than 30,000 views just on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDwI1rIhknpNyUWdFt_XD6rpTEjTkUcYoWe are working on the next cohort for Winter 2023. -------------------Dear Friends, in these past few months we have embarked on an unbelievable and extraordinary journey! Thanks to your support, we were able to educate over 500 Farsi speaking people about blockchain and smart contract coding (Solidity). Over a year ago, seven different women (now Women in Blockchain Farsi) living in different parts of the world heard about a scholarship for the ConsenSys Academy smart contract development course for Farsi-speaking women. This opportunity, organized by the non-profit educational organization “CoinIran”’s founder Bahar and Women in Blockchain’s Founder Thessy Mehrain (also ½ Iranian), was designed to teach all the fundamentals of smart contract development. All seven women who applied for this program successfully graduated the course.This indeed was huge for us. Participating in an international course, coming from Iran, enabled us to overcome some of the everyday challenges imposed on Iranian society. Words cannot describe how grateful we are for this opportunity! This opened new doors in the world of decentralized technology and blockchain. We were able to take on freelance coding projects and even participate in hackathons! Now we want to help others do the same and here is why:There is a general lack of resources and educational content in the native language of these regions, posing major obstacles to Farsi speaking communities when it comes to accessing finance and decentralized technology. The Farsi-speaking community has a population of more than 120 million, located in West Asia in Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Iran. Recently, the Taliban government in Afghanistan has banned all girls from schools and has even closed universities. Moreover, heavy sanctions imposed on Iranian citizens has limited them from accessing most social media platforms via geoblocking and even blocking educational platforms, in this way making it difficult to gain access to accurate and up to date education content. Last year, we created the smart contract development forum to share and build on the knowledge we acquired through this course and participating in hackathons. The forum grew fast and is now an active platform for Farsi speaking community consisting of over 550 members. We also taught a Smart Contract course in the summer of 2021. The request for participation in this course exceeded the capacity of the class with 150 applicants. However, given the limited volunteer labour and resources, we only accepted 35 eligible students. The course was co-founded and instructed by Women in Blockchain Farsi, and mentored by Shayan Eskandari. The course ran for 3 months and featured more than 40 hours of online classes and technical articles. In this course, students were first introduced to the basic concepts of blockchain and Ethereum, and were taught all the technical skills needed to develop smart contracts and decentralized applications. Thanks to the endless labour of our volunteers, the course was well received by students. We had a diverse range of students, even as young as 13 years old! Our graduates received their special POAP developer certification.A few testimonials from the graduates of the summer course: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/activity-6873020335860531200-u-3R/https://twitter.com/chichinaaa/status/1464862158773235721?s=20https://twitter.com/erfansafari14/status/1464935859657056263https://twitter.com/DibaMomeni/status/1464871828699205638?s=20​​https://twitter.com/amiralbertt/status/1464981792902074374?s=20Even though the course ended in September 2021, our work here isn’t done, we need your support!In this year’s ConsenSys Academy Ethereum developer bootcamp, we were able to sponsor 65 Farsi speaking individuals (45 from Iran and 20 from Afghanistan). Unfortunately, the course abruptly ended for most of our students due to unknown legal issues regarding their jurisdiction. Even though this was a hard blow for both our students and mentors, we managed to pick up the pieces and move forward. We are determined to continue spreading smart contract development education and teaching valuable skills to foster autonomy and grant access to decentralized finance. Latest update: Our Gitcoin grant also was suspended due to the "jurisdiction" of our students!!Please support us in our mission! Not only will your funds help ensure that our volunteers get fairly compensated for the hard labour they put into managing and maintaining this course, but it will also help ensure that the course content and materials stay accessible and free to everyone!Let’s build a more equitable future by ensuring that everyone - regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, and geographical location - can benefit from blockchain. ----------Here's the Women in Blockchain Farsi team:

Safe Internet Usage For Farsi Speakers
Global sanctions and internet censorship for Persian-speaking blockchain activists.The Persian blockchain and crypto community has been going through difficult times lately.Persian-speaking blockchain activists haven’t accessed training courses, the community is now in dire straits, along with disruptions to global networks and strict internet censorship in Iran.Global sanctions and internet censorship in countries such as Iran and Afghanistan have not only deprived activists of up-to-date blockchain and Web3 knowledge in these countries, but have further isolated them and prevented them from communicating with global experts.The risk of being arrested and imprisoned Persian-speaking activists in this field. They have been repeatedly accused of conducting dubious economic activities due to the Iranian government's ignorance of cryptocurrencies, so the risk of being arrested and imprisoned also threatens them.Such a circumstance has constrained active members of the community to emigrate or cease their activities. Also, it must be noted that immigration is a very complicated task for most individuals, due to the low monetary value and low validity of the passport.What had we done? CoinIran is the first Persian blockchain and crypto website which launched as a non-profit group in 2014 to empower the Persian-speaking community. Over the past few years, we have been translating, writing, and publishing thousands of articles, creating hundreds of videos and podcasts, and conducting numerous research and training projects to achieve this goal, and this path will go on.What do we need to do? According to the portrayed conditions, CoinIran will enlist your help to take effective measures in line with its main goals, overcome language barriers and technological obstacles, and support the activities and growth of the Persian-speaking community. We are seeking funding or other forms of support to successfully implement the program below. The most important measures we want to take:Providing dedicated VPNs to bypass filtering and censorship.Educating the strategies for keeping up the security of assets.Making instructional videos on safe and secure internet usagePrivacy oriented educational materialWe are also open to suggestions and intellectual assistance of any kind. Do not hesitate to send us your ideas to improve the situation of the Persian-speaking community.We will regularly update you on the project, and share a draft for iterations.

Relocating Web3 Iranians
Iran is in turmoil.Protests are breaking out all over the country, despite the fact that protesters are regularly arrested, tortured and too often die while in custody. There are so many arrests by plainclothes police officers that kidnappings are starting to happen in daylight and people simply assume it is the police. It is frankly unsafe to be in Iran right now, especially if you are in web3.Iranian tech leaders are routinely arrested and jailedThe internet has been heavily censored. Iran is using a system similar to what China uses to censor the internet, except they are being much more brutal with the enforcement related to maintaining it.Most developers working in the web3 space must use a VPN, ssh tunneling or Starlink to access the international services they need to do their job, and in doing so they are breaking laws and are at risk of being arrested. Activists in the space are especially at risk, Hossein Ronagi and Amir Emad Mirmirani (Jadi) can be mentioned as examples.Hossein RonaghiㅡA young engineer in charge of the anti-censorship committee in Iran (IranProxy) has been arrested and jailed several times. He recently escaped the clutches of plainclothes agents who broke into his home. Unfortunately, he was later arrested and unjustly imprisoned. Amir Emad Mirmirani aka Jadiㅡ A programmer and technology promoter in Iran, as well as the founder of Radio Gig Podcast has prepared thousands of hours of free online training courses for anyone interested in programming and free open-source software. He has also been one of the opponents of censorship and internet restrictions in Iran and has informed people about the issue. Jadi was abducted from his home by plainclothes agents on October 5 of this year. Zia Sadrㅡ An Iranian blockchain evangelist and lecturer was arrested and jailed late this summer. UPDATE (Dec 19, 2022)All three of the above tech leaders have been recently released. 🎉 International relations are getting worse.Recently Nazanin Boniadi pleaded to the UN for support and declared the current regime to be not reformable, thus implying that the only solution is to remove the current government.And soon after US President, Joe Biden said, “Don’t worry, we’re gonna free Iran, they're going to free themselves pretty soon.” These are worrying times.With the general distaste for the Iranian government growing within and external to Iran, the chances of a violent revolution / civil war erupting are rising every day. This could lead to the boarders being closed and our web3 colleagues being trapped in a bad situation.It is difficult for Iranians to travel. Not only are there visa issues, but also there are social and economic issues to be considered as well.This grant hopes to alleviate the economic burden and create a supportive social network of web3 Iranians in Istanbul.We will reimburse the flights and lodging for them and their immediate family to encourage them to flee for safety before it is too late. We will also help them book accommodation their access to international banking infrastructure is obviously limited.We have helped 2 web3 community members escape Iran already and they are currently searching for a nice neighborhood in Istanbul. When they have chosen on one, we will bring as many people as possible to stay close together, so they can have regular gatherings and build strong relationships in these troubling times.Turkey only offers Iranians 90 day visas. After our community members have been there 2 months, if the situation does not seem to be getting better, we will help them find another country to go to.Maybe nothing will happen and things will calm down. This is our hope, we would excitedly take down this project, and the web3 community members that left for Turkey could return home to their local community with new friends. If this happens unused donations will be sent to donation.eth (Giveth Matching Pool).All expenditures will be documented in the updates of this project.We will make every effort to protect the identity of the web3 community members that are in Iran, many are pseudonymous and could lose their jobs if their employers find out where they live. We appreciate this and will use an encrypted form to take applications and while doing our due diligence to confirm that applicants for this subsidy work in web3 we will in no way hint to their employers that they are from Iran. We will also make sure we send reimbursement funds to a fresh Ethereum address as opposed to their public/ens address.If you are a web3 community member currently in Iran, please stay safe and consider if you can do more to support the people of Iran outside the country, than you can do protesting inside the country. If you would appreciate support in leaving the country, we are here to help! Please use this encrypted form to apply.https://form.jotform.com/223058111377047

Stand up for Iranians Stand up for Web3 Inclusivity
Contribute towards legal efforts that will outline how to best navigate US sanctions against Iran to include Iranians in Web3. Iran is going through a critical time: the current mass movement and the violent response by the government in power makes the population increasingly vulnerable and in need of access to blockchain native tools. Who in crypto hasn't heard of, or been concerned about, sanctions violations? The aversion to this risk is so high, that instead of applying the law, the crypto space became a victim of overcompliance (all while remaining a grey legal area), resulting in the unfair discrimination of Iranian users. Popular Web3 platforms and services have poorly rejected and banned Iranian users citing US sanctions as a reason. In an effort to avoid this risk, the crypto space is now trending towards overcompliance to the extent of racism. This is unfortunate since Iranian users have always been a part of the crypto communities, experience ongoing internet shut-downs, and are geo-blocked from accessing basic crypto tools like digital non-custodial wallets. But excluding Iranians from tools that are in existence to exactly alleviate repression and censorship is counter productive to the mission of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and crypto in general. Yet, no formal legal guidelines exist regarding Iranians and their possible relationship to educational and web3 projects (for more information on this see: https://techcrunch.com/2021/12/21/borderless-crypto-networks-wrestle-with-state-sanction-compliance/) Help us fund and draft guidelines with experts in the field of sanctions on the scope of economic sanctions against Iran and how best to navigate them within the crypto decentralized space. Let’s collectively understand the risks, the scope and the requirements for compliance to US economic sanctions against Iran in order to surgically address compliance needs instead of implementing unreasonable and discriminative blanket bans based on nationality, language, etc. Understanding the regulatory ever-evolving landscape is no easy task. The latest positive development in the field is the September 2022 US Treasury Issued a General License to Increase Support for Internet Freedom for Iranian users (https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/jy0974), which broadened up possibilities related to Iran but which was not studied nor implemented in Web3 to our understanding. We are seeking funding and all other forms of support to create clear guidelines on what tools and services are possible to offer to Iranians. We hope to cover the question of sanctions with regards to the following fields within Web3: educational content in Farsiprovision and usage of communication and collaboration toolsservices offered at no-cost (no monetary transactions involved, “no-cost services”)“Provides additional authorization for the services that support the communication tools to assist ordinary Iranians in resisting repressive internet censorship and surveillance tools deployed by the Iranian regime.”decentralized services (such as; digital identity, DeFi, NFT, wallets, miners/validators, etc) We are looking for crypto lawyers, regulators and whomever else can assist us in creating rules that safeguard Iranian users from risk aversion discrimination. If you or someone you know is committed to making the vision of a decentralized and inclusive web a reality and want to support this cause, please get in touch with us in the comments here or email us at [email protected]. We will regularly update you on the project, and share a draft for iterations. The ‘Collective for Freedom and Decentralisation’ is a group of cypherpunk crypto OGs, partnered with ‘Women in Blockchain Farsi’, a group that successfully works on inclusivity and education in the space.
