ETHGlobal has played a key role in the growth of Ethereum open source developer community, educational talk, technical workshops, etc. to the hackers who participate in hackathon events to develop applications.
Most of the hackers believe that ETHBerlin is the most successful Ethereum Hackathon till now. In ETHBerlin a wide range of innovative projects such as the game of Battleship has emerged. ETHBerlin has also gained a huge media coverage because of decentralized applications and Ethereum based solutions such as live streaming, hotel booking, and ticketing.
