Please explain how this Mission will help accomplish the above Intent:

Our mission aims to organize real-life events in various cities across Mexico, conducted in Spanish, presenting a unique opportunity to effectively disseminate the Optimistic Vision.

These events will serve as platforms to educate and engage the Mexican community, shedding light on the potential and benefits of Optimism. Furthermore, our Twitter Spaces dedicated to technical aspects and governance in Spanish will further contribute to raising awareness and fostering a deeper understanding of Optimism’s distinctive vision within the Mexican community.

What makes your Alliance well-suited to execute this Mission?

The team’s history of hosting virtual classes, in-person meetups, workshops, and Twitter Spaces demonstrates their ability to engage and educate diverse audiences effectively.

Their involvement as volunteers and speakers in prominent Ethereum conferences like ETHBogotá, ETHLatam, and Devcon showcases their deep knowledge and commitment to the ecosystem.

Moreover, their expansion of activities to multiple cities, including Mexico City, Puebla, Mérida, Guadalajara, and Monterrey, highlights their dedication to reaching and supporting local communities.

By addressing the educational gap and fostering inclusivity, Ethereum Mexico is poised to make a substantial impact on the growth and development of the Ethereum ecosystem in Mexico.

This is a very reasonable proposal.

I am an Optimism delegate with sufficient voting power , and I believe this proposal is ready to move to a vote.


Hi, I am reviewing this proposal and would like to know if there are more details. Do you have a breakdown of what you are going to give in the talks? And also what kind of promotion will you give to Optimism? Is it a single Optimism event or will it also be with another L1 or L2? What kind of audience are the talks geared towards?


This is awesome :smiley: Nice


Hello @AxlVaz Thank you for reviewing our proposal. We appreciate your interest and would be happy to provide more details. Here are the improved answers to your questions:

We have prepared a breakdown of the topics covered in our talks. The content is designed to cater to a diverse audience, including both technical and non-technical individuals. We cover a wide range of subjects, starting from the basics and gradually delving into more advanced concepts. Here is an example breakdown of the talks:

  • Scalability solutions for Ethereum
  • Optimistic Roll-ups
  • Introduction to Optimism
  • RetroPGF (Potential topic, specific to the proposal)
  • Roadmap

In terms of promotion, our primary focus is on showcasing and promoting Optimism. Our talks will provide in-depth information about Optimism, its features, and its benefits. Through these talks, we aim to generate awareness and understanding among the audience regarding Optimism’s capabilities and its role in the Ethereum ecosystem. It will be an specific talk about Optimism and we leave the door open to the local communities to present their local projects (alined to Ethereum Values).
Thank you for your questions and please let us if you need any additional information


@Joxes Fren, i think that you need to travel to Mexico to see this going trough. It could be great if you help upvoting this proposal.


Similar to other proposals I think this would be a win for the Optimism ecosystem and help improve their ability to make an impact in the real world.

As a contributor of @seedlatam for the @Joxes delegation, I have analyzed this mission following the criteria mentioned in this post.

  • The proposal is well-structured and meets the minimum requirements. However, I believe that more details could have been provided regarding the materials they will be working with and how the in-person events will be conducted. I would like to see concrete metrics of the impact achieved and how it benefits the Optimism ecosystem presented at the end of each event.

  • The requested funds are reasonable, and the breakdown is coherent. I want to congratulate you on your reasonableness in this aspect.

  • The proposed scope seems conservative. Knowing the size of the community in Mexico, I believe they could achieve even more impressive results. It is highly likely that they will.

Additionally, I would like to mention the team. I am familiar with the work of Ariello, @brichis, and I am a big admirer of @dmars300 and their work in Criptoversidad. However, as a member of the Latam community, it is widely known that Chuy García, aka Chuy, has defamed, virtually harassed, and doxxed several people in the Latam community. These actions have been carried out publicly in various groups (all their messages are public) and in CT.

Nevertheless, I consider that the rest of the team is doing a great job and has worked hard for the community in Mexico and Latam in general. I am confident that this proposal will have a significant impact on the Optimism ecosystem. Therefore, I am IN FAVOR of this mission.

Hi! @Griff @ceresstation @AxlVaz and @linda!

Ariiellus here! Thank you for support our proposal! We believe in an Optimistic future for the Mexico community. Our mission since day one has been to empower people to participate and make the jump from enthusiast to builder. With this project “Rumbo Optimista” we aim to create a belonging sentiment across several cities in Mexico in order to consolidate the values and virtues of the people.

We will take your feedback into consideration and make sure to include concrete metrics of impact in our final report after each event, demonstrating how the Optimism ecosystem has benefited from our activities.

Once again, thank you for your support and valuable feedback. We are committed to making a significant impact on the Optimism ecosystem and look forward to the opportunity to work closely with the community in Mexico. Together, we can create a thriving and optimistic future for all.

@joxes is going to give the approval who is the delegate of SEED Latam. Together with other SEED collaborators we are supporting him to cover more proposals. Our working methodology is specified in this post.


Congrats Brichis, it’s a great initiative , it’s really important to create awareness with the Latin American community

We believe that in-person events are indispensable for the blockchain ecosystem. We also organize face-to-face events in Turkey as much as possible. We are aware of the challenges in budgeting for these events.

As ITU Blockchain, we vote in favor of this mission. We hope that the interest in these events exceeds our expectations and that the participants become a contributor to Optimistic Vision.


I’m voting yes for this proposal. The amount seems reasonable and I’m a fan of spreading awareness/educating communities in Mexico.


@Griff @AxlVaz @CryptoReuMD @ceresstation @linda @Joxes @Omarsin @itublockchain
A big thank you to all the incredible supporters who backed our proposed mission! We’re immensely grateful to have made it through the voting phase. The enthusiasm is real as Optimism joins us on the Road to Ethereum Mexico 2023! By the way, if any of you are in Mexico or planning to attend Ethereum México 2023 in October, let’s connect in person! Feel free to send me a DM. Exciting times ahead! :smile:


I owe you a lot of DM Brichis, but It would be great to vibe with this optimistic vision in the next run to ETHMx.
Happy to help inside my cave.
