Gateway to Cosmos 2023 Announces Speakers for Europe’s Largest Internet of Blockchain Ecosystem Gathering
[PRESS RELEASE – Prague, Czech Republic, May 25th, 2023]
Conference and Hackathon are set for June 3-5 to kick off Prague Blockchain Week
Gateway to Cosmos 2023 today announced the speakers and sponsors for the three-day in-person conference and hackathon in Prague 3-5. June which will bring together the best Web3 minds to shape the future of Cosmos, the blockchain internet.
Kicking off Prague Blockchain Week, where Vitalik Buterin is a confirmed attendee, the event will be the largest Cosmos community gathering in Europe, featuring 40+ exceptional speakers, 30+ presentations, 10 panel discussions and 15 workshops.
In addition to attending scheduled addresses, an estimated 600 attendees will have a chance to browse booths in the Cosmos Gateway Expo, speak with project and vendor teams, network with fellow cosmonauts—as community members refer each other—or visit the oasis of Neutron Hackers Lounge for a chance to code, chat and relax.
Cosmos and its Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol solve what was previously a key challenge for Web3 builders – the need to choose a blockchain, such as Ethereum, Avalanche, Solana or Aptos, on which to build their applications. Projects benefit from growing on-chain usage, because a vibrant application ecosystem means more users and better user journeys. With Cosmos / IBC technology, builders now launch applications that are operational across chains from day 1, and can focus only on developing great products and businesses.
The conference will showcase the ecosystem’s leading projects and startups, technical roadmap developments, investment trends, and offer a window into adjacent technologies, such as privacy and scaling solutions, with the potential to advance today’s most exciting blockchain use cases.
“While other blockchain technologies that were once the darlings of builders, users and investors have struggled in this more bearish environment, Cosmos is uniquely on the rise. It has attracted more developers than almost any other blockchain ecosystem – a testament to the now ready the benefits of ‘app chains’ and the limitations of public blockchains. Cosmos has emerged as a main rival to Ethereum to house the future of decentralized finance (DeFi),” said Samantha Bohbot of RockawayX, the global venture capital firm and an organizer of the conference.
Speakers will include leaders of prominent projects using Cosmos and Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) technology, including Osmosis Co-Founder Sunny Aggarwal, Sommelier Co-Founder Zaki Manian, Agoric Co-Founder Dean Tribble, and Juno Co-Founder Jake Hartwell, just to name a few. Others, such as Node Capital’s Amos Meiri, The Block’s Frank Chapparro, and Binance’s Kiril Khomiakov will offer new perspectives from beyond Cosmos’ borders.
Gateway to Cosmos 2023 builds on the success of last year’s Rockaway-hosted inaugural conference, a busy, packed event that drew over 300 attendees and was rated a success by guests and speakers alike.
Day one, Launching The Rocket into Cosmos, will feature the best use cases already in production, as well as those hitting the launch pad in the near future. Keynote addresses will come from, among others, key representatives of Cosmos, Interchain, Informal, Agoric, Celestia, Sommelier and NYM.
Day two will focus on steering the Cosmos rocket in the right direction. Speakers will lift the hood and provide deep insight into topics such as governance, interoperability and decentralization in general.
Day three will be about welcoming new cosmonauts on board – milestones ahead for leading projects and what it takes to develop and scale the next generation of “killer decentralized applications.”
The event’s partners span the top companies using Cosmos and IBC technology today and leaders across the digital asset space, including Halborn, Flow Traders, Fraction, SubQuery and more.
Cosmos Hub is the gateway to a rapidly growing ecosystem of independent interconnected blockchains built using developer-friendly application components and connected to the groundbreaking Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol.
