Hi cool kids 🏴☠️

Unlike 15 days ago, it finally feels like summer in France. If you’re not in France, close your eyes and imagine sunshine, no clouds, and overheated computers! We hope you can picture our current mood. 🌞

Several topics to detail: the EthCC in Paris, the future builders meeting, our progress on Berty…

Enjoy your reading 🙃

    • Keep on improving logging and reducing verbosity on the different variants of Berty (daemon, bot, etc…)

🗣️ Community

EthCC[4] in Paris

This week was held the EthCC in Paris. The Ethereum Community Conference (EthCC) is considered the biggest Ethereum event in Europe. The EthCC is organized every year by Ethereum France’s association, aiming to promote the understanding and development of Ethereum blockchain technology and, more broadly, blockchain, peer-to-peer, and cryptography technologies.

We were able to participate in several side events like those organized by our friends from SkillZ. It was of very high quality. We’ll tell you more about it in a future blog post!

Berty Builders Meetings

After Steeve from Zenly, we are pleased to have Dietrich from Protocol Labs as our next guest. His talk is entitled “No Bigger Ship: IPFS and Strategies for Leverage in World-Scale Technology Adoption”. It’s quite a topic!

As usual, this event will be live on our Discord . Make sure to join!

Here is all the info:


You can help us by translating the Berty app + website. Berty Team and the community will much appreciate it!


Think your language won’t have much of an impact? Berty wants to be accessible to everyone, including those who are marginalized from mainstream media. Please help us reach them!

Good First Issue & Help Wanted

If you want to contribute, we have two labels on GitHub to let you know where we need you: Good First Issue & Help Wanted . You will have our eternal gratitude and maybe some stickers. Just saying 😏
