The month of April was a high watermark for the ETHStaker Community. In addition to delivering content that we all know and love, like State of the Stake and Community Updates, the ETHStaker crew hosted a slew of high-profile events. This included a presentation at ETHGlobal and livestream of the Berlin Upgrade Party, where POAP.art made its world debut.
April has also been successful for the other arms of the ETHStaker Community, with Stakehouse debuting a Decentralized Graffiti Tool. Besides a few special pieces of content like the Rocket Pool Tokenomics Explainer video, POAP.art Explainer video, ETHosphere Timeline Series, and the premier of the ETHStaker Podcast, ETHStaker also played a role during Beacon Chain turbulence. They provided community support and updates to reduce confusion within the ecosystem.
Due to the number of events and content that we deliver in a month and the additional commitment to participate in upcoming events – the ETHStaker Core Crew has grown! We’d like to formally welcome Colfax and GreyWizard as our newest core members. The work that ETHStaker has accomplished wouldn’t be possible without the contributions and support from Colfax and GreyWizard. We can now accomplish even more, and we’re lucky to have you aboard. Welcome!
Ethereum Berlin Network Upgrade Party
The ETHStaker livestream of the Ethereum Berlin Network Upgrade was an overwhelming success. While we counted down to the live implementation of the Berlin Network Upgrade, there was an all-star crew in attendance for this milestone event with special presentations from POAP, Stakehouse, Beaconcha.in, Nethermind, Teku, Stakefish, and Logic Beach.
If you’re looking for highlights from the Berlin Upgrade Party, check out this special Community Update:
POAP.art World Debut
Patricio Worthalter of POAP debuted the newest addition to the POAP family: POAP.art. POAP.art is a collaborative experience that allows users with existing POAPs access to a communal canvas. Users can add individual pixels to a blank canvas and mint the completed project as an NFT on the xDAI network.
The very first POAP.art piece was created during the livestream and was minted, with only two now in existence. One mint was raffled off to a lucky winner during the livestream, the second is up for auction on foundation.app.
But don’t feel left out; according to the official POAP.art Twitter, those who contributed to the creation of the first-ever POAP.art canvas will receive a numbered, framed, and signed high-quality print of the final artwork.
If you’re interested in creating on a POAP.art canvas, you can go to sandbox.poap.art. Unvetica.eth created an explainer video breaking down how to gain access as well as how to start dropping pixels!
Be sure to join their Discord Server at poap.art/Discord and begin collaborating with other artists.

What’s the ETHStaker crew planning next?
An exciting official announcement will be published next week, and the ETHStaker Core Crew is already hard at work coordinating and organizing a full docket of livestream events. Though exact details are still being firmed-up, we can say that if you’re looking to increase your POAP collection – this will be a great opportunity.
To sweeten the deal, the ETHStaker crew will be giving prizes away across these multiple events. We’re incredibly excited to present the full details soon – we know everyone is going to have a blast!
