Polkadot Decoded 2022 adds Buenos Aires as fifth location
Polkadot Decoded, the network’s annual conference, is back for 2022, and is going even bigger with the addition of Buenos Aires to the four locations already announced.
Citing unprecedented interest from the South American community, the event organizer Web3 Foundation has added the Argentinian capital to Berlin, Mexico City, New York, and Shanghai as the fifth city to host live events. The news comes on the heels of Argentinian authorities’ push to include cryptocurrency businesses in its overall anti-money laundering (AML) regulatory scheme.
The annual conference for all things about Polkadot has been scheduled for June 29 & 30, with events at five international locations spanning four continents.
Polkadot Decoded 2022’s program will feature a first-time experience of in-person events, but the content is also accessible online via interactive livestream to accommodate a global ecosystem and individuals who cannot go to one of the five places.
The network’s flagship summit has previously been held as an online-only event due to Covid-19 lockdown. However, the community has grown substantially and the first wave of parachains has been published since then. These parachains will support these new, fully integrated blockchain applications.
Like last year’s event, a community vote will propose the best workshop or in-person presentation ideas they want to see highlighted. An open call for proposals (CFP) is being used to help curate the final program for Polkadot Decoded 2022 to showcase community initiatives, and educate a global audience on everything going on in Polkadot.
As an inclusive event for everyone in the community, Polkadot Decoded received more than 80,000 votes and the shortlist announcing the most popular proposals has been released.
This year’s program will feature keynote talks from those involved in Polkadot’s parachains, plus Parity and Web3 Foundation. It also offers an unprecedented networking opportunity for members of the Polkadot community through interactive and collaborative workshops across all five locations.
“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. 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,” the organizers said.
Polkadot has been emerging as a strong contender to solve this issue and one of the ways that they are looking to do this is by parachains. This is a product that contains multiple blockchains which can communicate with each other, and all of these chains are contained within the Polkadot ecosystem.
