Given that we all cry out for in-person events, I figured it couldn’t hurt to do a quick recap about such blockchain events in 2022.
You might not believe it, but almost 13 years have passed since the cryptocurrency and blockchain revolution began. The growth of the world wide web has taken place very linearly and steadily, but with the introduction of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, we are witnessing a new pace.
We can now see many significant events in the following years, thanks to stellar projects that want to create a brighter future for a global society.
The web is a distributed applications platform and blockchain is the technology designed to maintain its integrity. But through 2030, much more needs to be done to continue cementing this new foundation for the web. We need to build more decentralized apps, secure and improve existing ones, and educate more people about this new path forward.
There are a ton of blockchain events coming up in the next couple of months to help us with that. We’ve put together the list of the most significant, so you can make sure you get the most out of them. Here we go!
Date: July 19 – 21
Place: Paris, France
Ethereum Community Conference (EthCC) is the largest annual European Ethereum event focused on technology and community. This is the first and foremost event made by the community, for the community.
Given that they were limited to 1,000 participants last year due to the pandemic, this year, the figure will be much higher to the delight of the whole community.
You will have the opportunity to hear more than 250 blockchain experts and visit more than 60 side events. Some of the main sponsors are AAVE, Polygon, Ledger, 1inch, Chainlink, Paraswap, etc.
In 2019, we had an opportunity to talk to and listen to some of the greatest minds in the crypto space. If we were, to sum up the entire experience from the conference in two words, we would go for groundbreaking and innovative. Take a look at how our team spent there!
Date: April 18 – 25
Place: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Devconnect is one of the longest blockchain events and gatherings of the Ethereum community. It is designed so that there are several events hosted by individual projects.
The event is primarily intended for those who are involved/interested in the ecosystem in one particular area and want to dive deeper. The idea is to divide the community into smaller groups that will share knowledge from the area they are interested in.
For those who come to the city and want to hang out between events, organizers provided a space where people will be able to collaborate.
Date: April 22 – 24
Place: Amsterdam, Netherlands
ETH Amsterdam is actually a hackathon that brings together the top minds in the Ethereum ecosystem. Teams have only 36 hours to make their masterpiece.
The event is open to both beginners and veterans of the web3 world. It is also tailored for people developing on web2 technology and are interested in building on web3 for the first time.
The organizers provide an abundance of hacking resources like mentors, sponsors, and software to help them come up with the best solution. It is hosted by ETHGlobal, and some of this year’s partners are Polygon, 1inch Network, Mina Protocol, SKALE Network, Wallet Connect, Connext.
Date: October 11 – 14
Place: Bogota, Colombia
This is one of the favorite and most visited blockchain events within the Ethereum community. The content was created both for those who are just exploring the web3 world and those who have been there for a long time and want to reunite with the global Ethereum family.
Host’s mission is to educate and empower the community to build and use decentralized systems. It is a conference for builders of all kinds: developers, designers, researchers, client implementers, test engineers, infrastructure operators, community organizers, social economists, artists, and more.
The whole Devcon week (October 7 – 16) is the place for collaboration, knowledge sharing, teaching, communicating, generating new ideas, and using their biggest stage to send a message.
