Emily Ostbo, Director of Ecosystem Marketing and Partnerships at Parity Technologies, commented on the event. “Some of the most innovative developers in the Web3 space are from India, and Bangalore in particular, has produced some of the most talented minds in tech. The city is a perfect choice as a location for what some may feel is an overdue visit to the country. I know many in the Polkadot community eagerly anticipate a vibrant, informative event. We look forward to the valuable contributions the region’s developers can make to shape the future of decentralised tech. I congratulate the team at KILT for assembling a powerful line-up of speakers and am sure this will be the first of many major events of this scale in India, bringing together great minds within the Polkadot ecosystem.”
As the first Polkadot global conference in India, attendees can expect an in-depth understanding of the Polkadot Network and its potential to revolutionise the blockchain industry with its innovative consensus mechanism and open governance structure.
“India is an important hub for blockchain innovation, and we are excited to bring the Polkadot network’s next-generation blockchain technology to the region with our first conference in India. The conference will introduce developers, researchers, media, investors, and other stakeholders to the Polkadot ecosystem, sharing knowledge and discovering new collaboration opportunities for the entire ecosystem.” said Rishant (Rish) Kumar, Growth Lead, APAC, KILT Protocol
The global conference will include keynote speeches, panel discussions, and interactive workshops. In addition to smart contracts and decentralised identity, attendees can expect to hear about Substrate, a modular framework for building blockchains that can be easily adapted to individual needs and balance regulatory compliance and decentralisation.
