This xGov request is already green, so we started to organize the event.

We booked the Paralel Polis location one day before the start of ETH Prague.

Mark your calendar for May 30, 18:30 to 22:00. We will join forces with regular BeerFi Prague meetup.

Congrats on the passing. How do you see the use of funds for the event going? Is there a vague breakdown?

Maybe this is a thing going forward for Algo community events. Your specifics could help the rest of us. Thanks

Sure, general idea at the moment is 5k algos for place, 5k for catering and 5k for airdrops.

Will you be taking a cut for your time? Or using any funds for any projects you have? Would be good idea to use this for a standard created?

Also will there be any video evidence? POAP NFTs? Pictures of how many people attended?

No.

Yes, some airdrops will be in the gold, some in vote token, some in usdc and some in algo.

Feel free to come and shoot some video.

Last year we have issued NFT tick*t, perhaps this year will do something similar.

Haha, I would love to come but very far from the US to shoot videos. We have plausable to hand PFPs or maybe you can team up with an Algo artist to create something fun and free for anyone who shows up??
