Polkadot Decoded 2020

The first edition of Polkadot Decoded brought the Polkadot community together for the first gathering since the network’s launch and decentralization. It was also one of the largest blockchain events in 2020, featuring talks from the people building Polkadot’s core technology and teams building ecosystem parachains and cross-network bridges. Polkadot founder Gavin Wood closed the event with a memorable fireside chat moderated by Unchained podcast host Laura Shin.

“Extremely interesting. Quality of speakers was high, enthusiasm was high, a very rewarding showcase of progress and things to come!”

“Was very enlightening, can't wait for more!”

“Very interesting topics for a newbie crypto enthusiast like me. First glance at Polkadot, and I was amazed with the projects, and that is why I decided to participate in the event.”
