Brooklyn, NY — February 21, 2022 — Avalanche, the fourth largest blockchain as measured by total value locked, today released details for the inaugural Avalanche Summit on March 22-27 at the Poble Espanyol in Barcelona, Spain.

The six-day event will bring together the most respected thought leaders, developers, researchers, and makers building the next-generation of Web 3.0 applications to discuss hot topics and frequently asked questions.

Leaders set to speak at the conference include Emin Gün Sirer, founder and CEO of Ava Labs; Sergey Nazarov, founder of Chainlink; Stani Kulechov, CEO of Aave; Konstantin Richter, CEO of Blockdaemon; Monica Taher, Technological and Economic International Affairs Director of El Salvador Government; Anne Fauuvre-Willis, Head of Special Operations at OpenSea; Kanav Kariya, President of Jump Crypto; Harold Bosse, VP of Innovation at Mastercard; and David Olsson, Global Head of Institutional Sales at BlockFi; among dozens of other soon to be announced.

Topics to be discussed include the future of NFTs, game-changing trends in DeFi and GameFi, the metaverse, interoperability, user experience and design for Web 3.0 applications, growing a community on Avalanche, what intrigues crypto venture capitalists right now, and more. With more than 2,500 anticipated attendees, the Summit will further unite Avalanche’s global community and share the latest platform updates.

Avalanche has grown faster than any other smart contract platform since launching in September 2020, with over 500 projects building on the platform, including top-tier DeFi projects like Aave, Curve, Trader Joe, BENQi, Sushi, and Chainlink, and enterprise applications for leaders in culture and sports with Topps, Andretti Autosport, Togg, and Deloitte.

Over the last six months, Avalanche has surpassed all-time highs in user activity, including transaction volume (94M total), unique addresses (now over 2M), and assets transferred from Ethereum to Avalanche over the Avalanche Bridge ($23B transferred to Avalanche since August). Total Value Locked (TVL) has increased from $300M in August to over $10B today, according to DeFi Llama.

“Community is at the core of some of the most successful projects in crypto, and we’re grateful to finally be able to bring the Avalanche community together in-person,” said John Wu, President of Ava Labs. “As one of the fastest-growing ecosystems in crypto, it’s important for us to take a step back and celebrate progress in the first year and half of Avalanche being live. We look forward to meeting everyone and raising a glass to everything the Avalanche community has accomplished so far, and provide inspiration for what’s to come.”

Avalanche Summit will feature two types of tickets – DevCon Pass or Hackathon Pass. The DevCon Pass will give attendees access to the Summit from March 22-25. Developers wishing to participate in the hackathon should apply for the Hackathon Pass, which will give ticket holders access to both the Summit and Hackathon from March 22-27.
