After the highly anticipated July 2020 mainnet launch, Polkadot is ready to showcase its real potential in front of the thriving DOT community. According to the official announcement, the network will hold its first official event, Polkadot Decoded, on December 3, 2020. This will be a one-day virtual event and will feature blockchain innovators like Ampleforth. As a no-fee event, it might continue to be a mainstay event on the calendar.
The highlight of the event will be the Ampleforth representatives talking about the potential of DeFi on Polkadot. It is being anticipated that Ampleforth and Polkadot might be entering into a deeper relationship. Furthermore, the event will showcase platform’s ecosystem, governance, and the workings of parachains. In addition to that, major projects like Acala stablecoin and Ontology’s digital ID solution that are being built on the platform will be discussed.
Interoperability continues to be the most discussed topic in the blockchain space. Thus, at Polkadot Decoded, interoperability will take the center stage. Some of the notable discussions will be:
- Snowfork-developed Polkadot-Ethereum bridge
- PolkaBTC bringing wrapped BTC to the platform
- Polkadot in multi-chain future
