You can signal as much as request an invitation right here: Mainnet.Events
The gist: we imagine that within the face of unprecedented challenges to our democratic establishments, a free and open future hinges on the speedy adoption of rising crypto applied sciences. That progress should not be hindered by slowdowns in journey, or cuts to occasion budgets. Instead, well-produced digital occasions can cut back prices of collaboration, enhance inclusivity, and nonetheless protect a few of the finest components of reside networking (assembly serendipity, catching up with previous associates, and speedy fireplace BD alternatives).Our flagship summit, The Mainnet will probably be a worldwide digital occasion June Eight-10 that convenes the highest crypto pioneers working to advance the event of our decentralized future. We have already got 100+ dedicated audio system, and a number of other verbally dedicated sponsors (regardless of merely throwing up a splash web page), so we’re excited by the preliminary enthusiasm and potential.
We’ll additionally roll out a number of smaller “testnet” occasions within the weeks forward with a view to stress take a look at our techniques and experiment with a wide range of concepts for attendee engagement.
As the previous producer of Consensus (I hosted the business’s first two huge international, multi-day summits in 2016 and 2017), I’ve needed to get again into the occasions sport for some time. Our workforce has some intelligent concepts for the way we’d replicate the reside networking experiences that make bodily occasions so essential on this globally decentralized crypto group.
We had initially deliberate to host our inaugural digital convention throughout NYC Blockchain Week in May, however determined to push that again by a month with a view to help CoinDesk’s Consensus, and ConsenSys’s Ethereal Summit as they have been pressured to shift to purely digital occasions given the state of emergency in New York.
It’s vital to help one another’s efforts throughout a disturbing time within the crypto (and broader) economic system, and we hope this transfer will assist cut back the financial harm these producers have confronted in cancelling their reside occasions. At the identical time, we’re placing our cash the place our mouth is pretty much as good ecosystem gamers, and can donate 50% of our earnings from this occasion to third-parties most negatively impacted by the financial challenges stemming from the coronavirus.
Now greater than ever, the worldwide crypto business must band collectively and reap the benefits of the chance to guide and proceed to drive options ahead that promote a extra equitable, environment friendly future.
I will have muchmore to share in regards to the mainnet and Mainnet Events subsequent week.
Until then, keep protected!
