Polkadot adds Buenos Aires as FIFTH location for flagship Polkadot Decoded event

April 24, 2022 in Events, Community

Polkadot is delighted to announce that its biggest annual event, Polkadot Decoded, just got even bigger.

Responding to unprecedented interest from the South American community, event organizer Web3 Foundation has added Buenos Aires to the four locations already announced.

The Argentinian capital, a hotbed of interest in Web3 and blockchain, joins Berlin, New York, Mexico City, and Shanghai as the fifth city to host live events on June 29th and 30th.

The network’s flagship summit, Polkadot Decoded, has previously been held as an online-only experience due to pandemic measures.

In the meantime, the community has grown substantially and Polkadot has launched the first wave of active parachains, supporting a range of new, fully integrated Web3 projects.

To celebrate the progress made so far, Polkadot is putting together something unique in the world of blockchain: five simultaneous gatherings around the world across four continents.

Polkadot Decoded 2022 will be a hybrid event, catering for the requirements of a truly global ecosystem and reaching those unable to travel to one of the five cities.

The summit will feature:

  • Keynote talks from those involved in Polkadot’s parachains, plus Parity and Web3 Foundation
  • Immersive, interactive and collaborative workshops across all five locations
  • An unprecedented networking opportunity for members of the Polkadot community

Although Polkadot Decoded will have a strong emphasis on being an in-person experience, a fully immersive and interactive live stream will also be available.

Reflecting the philosophy of decentralization, the community was invited to propose - and then vote on - ecosystem innovations and initiatives they wanted to see highlighted.

Nearly 82,000 votes were received and the shortlist announcing the most popular proposals has been released. It reflects a broad cross-section of active parachain participants.
