The World of Polkadot, Decoded.

After making its mark as one of the biggest blockchain events of 2020, the virtual conference on all things Polkadot is back for a second edition May 19th-20th, 2021.

This year, in the spirit of decentralization, the conference featured an open call for presentation proposals and a community vote to help curate the final program.

With over 100,000 votes on 200+ proposals, the community made its voice heard. The final program is a 2-day, multi-track event packed with talks and workshops for both technical and non-technical audiences.

Over 40 innovators in the Polkadot ecosystem will explore the biggest topics in blockchain, from parachains to DeFi, NFTs, IoT, identity, privacy, energy and more. Program highlights include a barstool chat with Gavin Wood and a keynote on parachains by Rob Habermeier, both founders of Polkadot.
