Can you summarize what was achieved from this meetup?

e.g. happy community etc.

Also, since this is the first Astar meetup in Indonesia, are the community looking forward to have more meetups?


Hi @moonme ,

From my own perspective :

  • a lot of attendees never heard Astar before, and they didn’t knew that Polkadot itself has a group of L1 Blockchains on top of them (parachains)
  • I introduce dApp Staking (Build2Earn) mechanism, and few of them asking me personally after the event how to be whitelisted as a Dapp on Astar Portal, we exchanged contacts and I will do the follow up. This is their MVP/early beta : not yet live
  • also I exchanged contacts with (a local media portal of cryptonews) with idea how to introduce blockchains to campus, also will follow up again later.

Conclusion :

  • I shared within that session that Astar Network really good for them who wants to try and experimental with Web3.0
  • Very positive response with Build2Earn, I guess half of the attendees were people involved in NFT / other web3 projects on other chain, as I spot a mod for IDNFT (a big NFT community creator/artist/collector in Indonesia) also.

My personal objective to be honest to aim developers community that resided in Yogyakarta and Bali, as I believe in order to create user’s demand, we need to create a “playground” for users.


I support this initiative!
Thanks a lot @souleater, for representing Astar in Bandung!


Totally support this!
Can you explain how will you reach Indonesian Community out? I mean marketing and stuff. Great initiative @souleater.


Thank you very much for representing Astar in Indonesia. This is such a great initiative from your side. I support you. Thank you


At the moment since Astar is based on Substrate (and I would like to emphasize on our Wasm side), I’m still discussing with Polkadot Senior Amba for Indonesia (Husni / PastaMan on Twitter) what’s the best direction to get more devs build for Astar.

Maybe going campus to campus, or held bi monthly or even quarterly meetup for devs. I don’t know, still thinking how to put efficiently especially regarding cost.

For growing Astar community in Indo, actually not too hard as myself is a mod for Polkadot Indo unofficial tele group (we don’t have official one eventhough we had 2 amba from Indo if I’m not mistaken). But my strategy more subtle, and dependent on organic. I’m more intrigued to grow dev community especially for Astar since we had dApp Staking mechanism.
