August 28, 2023

sub0 Europe 2023 is around the corner! It’s a developer conference focused on the Polkadot ecosystem, Substrate, Web3, and blockchain technologies. The event will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, at Lx Factory, a historical industrial complex and creative center in the Alcântara neighborhood, on September 19-20, 2023. 

The event boasts a diverse lineup of keynote speakers, deep-dive sessions, and hands-on workshops, making it the ideal learning ground for both seasoned developers and newcomers.

Attendees can immerse themselves in demo stations, engage in meeting rooms, and form meaningful connections in dedicated networking zones. This is a great opportunity to interact with Web3 innovators and discover new projects firsthand.

Every talk and panel will be streamed live, ensuring online attendees don't miss a beat.

From exploring Substrate-based blockchains and dApps to deep dives into smart contracts, infrastructure, and cross-chain solutions, the conference offers a holistic view of the future of multichain networks. sub0 is the platform to refine skills and foster meaningful connections.

Goals and Objectives

1. Foster innovation and collaboration within the Polkadot ecosystem.

2. Provide a hub for knowledge-sharing and learning about Polkadot, Substrate, Web3, and blockchain technologies.

3. Offer interactive workshops, presentations, and panel discussions to cater to various skill levels and interests.

4. Showcase cutting-edge blockchain tech and tooling, as well as the benefits of building on Polkadot and Substrate.

Key Topics and Themes

At the sub0 Polkadot conference, some of the main topics covered include:

Substrate: Substrate is a blockchain development framework that allows developers to build customized blockchains, which can be easily integrated into the Polkadot ecosystem. It offers flexibility, performance, and robustness, enabling the creation of specialized blockchains for specific use cases.

Deployment of Substrate networks: The conference discusses the deployment of Substrate-based networks, which can be connected to Polkadot as parachains, benefiting from shared security and cross-chain interoperability

On-chain privacy for Polkadot: Privacy is an essential aspect of the Polkadot ecosystem, and the conference explores various initiatives and projects aimed at enhancing privacy within the network, such as Manta Network, which leverages zero-knowledge proofs to offer plug-and-play privacy features.

These topics are crucial for the Polkadot ecosystem and the broader blockchain community, as they address key challenges and opportunities in the development of decentralized applications and next-generation multichain networks. 

Keynote Speakers

In the previous sub0 Polkadot conference, one of the keynote speakers was Dr. Gavin Wood, the founder and CTO of Parity Technologies. Wood is also a co-founder of Ethereum and the creator of Polkadot.

More than 50 speakers will cover a wide range of topics, including decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), infrastructure, and interoperability. Some of the notable speakers at Sub0 Europe 2023 include:

  • Rob Habermeier, Founder, Parity Technologies
  • Adam Nagy, CEO, Moonsama
  • Alberto Viera, Developer Relations, Moonbeam
  • Seraya Takahashi, Grants Evaluator, Web3 Foundation
  • Seun Lanlege, Founder & Mad Scientist, Polytope Labs
  • David Pethes, Head Ambassador, Polkadot
  • Maciej Baj, the Founder and CTO of t3rn

Maciej will delve into the critical role of oracles in maintaining data accuracy and the challenges they pose. He'll spotlight t3rn's innovative approach in reshaping the oracle landscape within the Polkadot ecosystem, emphasizing the utilization of Eth2 light client data to guarantee on-chain data alignment and fetch precise price feeds from top-tier DEXs such as Uniswap.
