On August 9, IOHK announced it would host Cardano Summit 2021, describing the Summit as “our biggest ever.”
This phrase applies to 2021 in general for Cardano. This year saw the continued rollout of Cardano Goguen, and the implementation of smart contracts via the Alonzo Hard Fork. ADA currently sits at $2.47 (via CoinMarketCap).
Here’s everything we know about Cardano Summit 2021.
Cardano Summit 2021 Date and Time
The Cardano Summit 2021 will take place on September 25-26, according to the website.
Featuring a “mix of virtual and live events”, those interested can now register via the Summit’s site. Tickets for the event will be completely free.
According to Sidney Vollmer, Cardano's Head of Brand and Communications, the Summit includes partnership announcements that "will blow people's minds."
Aside from these details, IOHK has revealed little else about the next Cardano Summit. The Cardano Summit in 2020 contained various talks and keynotes from those at the heart of Cardano’s operations, Wyoming legislators, and blockchain experts.
We don’t know what time the 2021 Summit will begin, but the 2020 event started at 7 AM MT/9 AM ET/1 PM UTC.
We’ll keep this page updated with more details as they come out.
Cardano Summit 2021 Location
While the Cardano Summit 2021 includes virtual events, it appears IOHK also intends to host physical, in-person events.
The summit will include six events across the world in the following locations: London, Miami, Berlin, Cape Town, Wyoming (the location of IOHK's headquarters), and New York.
These details of these events are included on the Summit website.
This is a chance for Cardano users, the local crypto community, tech enthusiasts and crypto holders to unite for two days of networking and collaboration. Key figures from the Cardano community will be there, along with leading research and engineering teams.
There are 38 in-person, community-led meetups happening across six continents during the Cardano Summit. You can see the details of these events here.
This lends itself to IOHK's ethos, which describes itself as a “fully decentralized, remote-working organization” that has employees in over 50 countries.
