Due to the COVID-19 pandemic worsening throughout the world, we have decided to pause the involvement of Lisk at events until the end of June 2020. Therefore, we will not be attending, organizing or sponsoring conferences, workshops, hackathons or meetups during this time. Moreover, several changes to the upcoming events have been announced by the organizers. Teamz Blockchain Summit was postponed to September 28th-29th, 2020. Consensus 2020 will still take place on May 11th-13th, 2020, but it will be a virtual experience and free-of-charge for attendees around the world. WeAreDevelopers World Congress was postponed to a later date.
Lisk’s participation at events in 2020 has the purpose of onboarding developers using the Lisk SDK, offering research and development updates; and furthermore growing the Lisk community through networking opportunities. In order to reach these goals, Lisk not only participates at conferences, hackathons and local meetups, but also organizes blockchain and developer events. As the blockchain weeks take place in major innovation hubs around the world in 2020, Lisk is going to participate in the most relevant ones, which for the first half of 2020 are listed below.
