Polkadot Decoded 2022: 4 locations, 3 continents, 2 days, 1 awesome experience

February 28, 2022 in Events

Polkadot is excited to announce plans to host a landmark live event in four separate locations across three continents over two days at the end of June.

The network’s flagship annual summit, Polkadot Decoded, has previously been held as an online-only experience due to pandemic measures.

In the meantime, the community has grown substantially and Polkadot has launched the first wave of active parachains, supporting a range of new, fully integrated blockchain projects.

To celebrate the progress made in building a truly decentralized web, Polkadot will host simultaneous gatherings around the world.

Polkadot Decoded 2022, organized by the Web3 Foundation, will take place in New York, Berlin, Mexico City and Shanghai on June 29 and 30. It will be a hybrid event to cater for the requirements of a truly global ecosystem and reach those unable to travel to one of the four venues.

The summit will feature:

  • Keynote talks from many of the individuals involved in Polkadot’s parachain projects
  • Immersive, interactive and collaborative workshops and hackathons
  • An unprecedented networking opportunity for members of the Polkadot community

Although Polkadot Decoded will have a strong emphasis on being an in-person experience, a fully immersive and interactive live stream will also be available. People not physically present will be able to ask questions and enjoy networking opportunities.

Last year’s community vote to help curate the final program of Polkadot Decoded proved so popular that a similar format will be followed this year.

Reflecting the philosophy of decentralization, an open call for proposals (CFP) will allow people to propose - and then vote on - ecosystem innovations and initiatives they want to see highlighted.

Submissions are open until March 14th, after which they are presented to the community.

Anyone wishing to submit a proposal is invited to use this form and some presentations will be permitted in Spanish, German and Mandarin, bearing in mind the audiences in Berlin, Shanghai and Mexico City.
