• Shelley will herald a new era for Cardano (ADA).
  • To celebrate the decentralisation of the network, a virtual summit will be held from 2 to 3 July 2020.

The Shelley Mainnet is scheduled to be activated between 29 and 30 July 2020. A historic moment, because therefore the decentralisation of Cardano should be completed. After that, however, we will continue directly.

Even if you are lagging behind the roadmap a bit in terms of time, there are still some interesting points on the agenda that represent important steps towards new use cases. These include smart contracts, better scaling, and governance.

To give a foretaste of what is to come in the near and distant future, the Virtual Summit 2020 will be held in a „Shelley Edition“.

Cardano Foundation, IOHK and Ermugo are hosts

The panel for the planned event is very top-class. The speakers include Vinto G. Cerf, commonly known as the father of the Internet. Cerf is Google’s Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist.

Also invited are Caitlin Long of the Wyoming blockchain Coalition and Stephan Wolfram, the founder and CEO of Wolfram Research. The panel is completed by Aggelos Kiayis and John O’Connor. Both are active in different fields for IOHK.

Who also cannot be missing is Charles Hoskinson himself. Further participants are to be announced.

Registration is free of charge

The event is aimed at interested parties from various disciplines. No matter if DApp developer, Stakepool operator or simple hodler. Everyone is invited to participate and can take the opportunity to be there.

Lectures and workshops will deal with various topics. These include business, science, governance and community building. However, participants from the DACH region should be prepared for a long night.

Due to the time difference the event will take place on both days between 15:30 and 03:30 CEST.
