The Cardano summit is scheduled to begin tomorrow, Saturday, September 25th. The summit is scheduled to run for two days, the 25th to the 26th, and promises to be a one-of-a-kind event. Meetups are available in six locations around the world. But the summit will feature both live and virtual events where anyone from around the world can attend. Local groups are also available with community-led events.
Events at the Cardano summit are split by the worlds they fall into. Currently, the summit features seven different worlds in which individuals can choose to participate in. These worlds include Cardano World, Utility, Impact, Governance, Adoption, Catalyst, and Community.
The Cardano community is still giddy with the recent launch of smart contracts capability on the network, and with good reason. This summit promises some bigger announcements following this incredible feat. Details of what might be expected from the team are still sparse. So right now, it really is a waiting game as the opening of the summit draws closer.
The partly virtual event features avatars for participants to communicate with one another. While also featuring notable keynote speakers from the crypto space that will speak throughout the two-day summit. In addition to these will be the availability of limited edition NFTs minted on the blockchain to be collected throughout the summit. Founder Charles Hoskinson will provide the live opening keynote across all seven worlds to mark the beginning of the summit.
Hydra 2, DeFi, And The Cardano Network
Cardano recently announced the launch of the Hydra Layer 2 solution that will enable developers to build and deploy their decentralized apps (DApps) in a safe and secure environment. With the launch of Hydra, Hoskinson tweeted that more information will be available about the solution at the summit.
More information about decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols launching on the network, with updates expected from decentralized protocols like Minswap and SundaeSwap, which are both built on the blockchain.
Founder Charles Hoskinson celebrates how far the blockchain has come up until this point. “The Cardano summit 2021 follows the launch of smart contract capabilities on Cardano, and a remarkable six years of intensive development and perf-reviewed academic research to create a third-generation blockchain platform which is not only eco-friendly but provably secure,” the founder said.
