Polkadot is a platform that allows diverse blockchains to transfer messages, including value, in a trust-free fashion; sharing their unique features while pooling their security.

Polkadot makes it easy to build blockchains and connect diverse chains. It is a multichain platform that addresses blockchain governance, interoperability, and scalability issues.

Q&A and networking will follow the presentations.

Drinks and snacks will be provided.

This event is free but we can only accommodate a limited amount of guests. RSVP early!

This event is organised by Web3 Foundation.

The Web3 Foundation was founded by Dr. Gavin Wood, Co-Founder of Ethereum and Founder of Parity Technologies, to focus on the development, deployment and maintenance of “Web3”. Gavin coined and explained the term April 2014 (http://gavwood.com/dappsweb3.html).

The Web3 Foundation nurtures and stewards cutting-edge technologies and applications at all levels of the Web3 tech stack. Our focus is on the research, development, deployment, funding, and maintenance of Web3 technologies. Because of our experience building major components of the Web3 tech stack and their respective communities, we are uniquely positioned to assemble and align the diverse set of teams building the protocols that make up the Web3 tech stack.
