The Cosmos Network has come a long way since the Cosmos Hub launched in March 2019, with more than 40 IBC-enabled blockchains to date, and many more expected to launch their mainnet soon. The ecosystem has gained significant traction over the past year, providing ample opportunity and demand for a dedicated developer conference. In line with this, Rockaway Blockchain Fund is announcing Gateway to Cosmos, the largest Cosmos conference and hackathon in Prague.
Gateway to Cosmos will be held in Prague on the 16th and 17th of May and will be the largest Cosmos-dedicated in-person event since the November 2021 Cosmoverse in Lisbon. Leaders from the blockchain industry, including key ecosystem speakers from Cosmos, Interchain, Informal, Agoric, Axelar, Evmos, Celestia, Sommelier, CosmWasm, and Quicksilver will dive into pertinent topics such as Inter-Blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC), shared security, Run Protocol, EVM compatibility, liquid staking, and cross-chain bridges. Attendees of this community event will have the opportunity to meet Dean Tribble, CEO at Agoric; Zaki Manian, Co-Founder at Sommelier Protocol; Sergey Gorbunov, Co-Founder and Engineer at Axelar; Billy Rennekamp, Cosmos Hub Lead; and Federico Kunze Küllmer, Co-Founder and CEO at Tharsis, among many others yet be announced soon. Developers in attendance can also spend some quality time coding in the hacker’s lounge, which will be separate from the main stage and foyer.
This two-day hackathon consists of many exclusive small bounties that will be presented on the website for the duration of the conference. Collecting these small and easy bounties is a strong opportunity to gain invaluable coding experience while being guided by projects at the forefront of the industry including Agoric, Axelar and RBF Labs. experienced hackers and bounty collectors can leverage the time by attending ‘Office Hours’ with Agoric and Axelar, gaining powerful insight into collecting larger, more professional bounties. Dean Tribble and Sergey Gorbunov will be on hand to provide valuable project feedback and in turn, guide your project in the right direction.
To round off this vibrant event, attendees will also be able to party with their beloved Cosmos friends and extended network. This will be the largest Cosmos party to date - stay tuned on our Twitter and website for the big reveal of this gathering’s time and venue.
Gateway to Cosmos is the one-stop-shop conference for all Cosmos Network evangelists. The ever-growing Cosmos community deserves a place to connect and network with one another in person to foster these special relationships that have stemmed from the Internet of Blockchains. Tickets for this two-day conference can be purchased here - this is a community event right at the heart of the cosmos!
