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.
