The near 1-week long event will play host to the highly respected thought leaders, developers, researchers, and makers building the next generation of Web 3.0 applications.
“Community is at the core of some of the most successful projects in crypto, and we’re grateful to finally be able to bring the Avalanche community together in-person,”. “As one of the fastest-growing ecosystems in crypto, it’s important for us to take a step back and celebrate progress in the first year and half of Avalanche being live. We look forward to meeting everyone and raising a glass to everything the Avalanche community has accomplished so far, and provide inspiration for what’s to come.”
