about the event

Bringing together a limited number of attendees, MCON gives you an experience of valuable conversations, learnings and experimental growth all about DAOs.

Join the Meta Network as we head to DAOSchool, This year MCON takes over a boutique high school campus in downtown Denver "Evan School" on Acoma.

If you've only ever dreamed of drinking tequila in between classes we're here to make it a reality.

With 6 classrooms of experiences to choose from, a main hall seating only 200 people you'll be encouraged to choose your own adventure while attending different talks and discussions. Worst comes to worse you can always form a circle on the lawn.
