Discussions and Networking at Infra Gardens, Denver

“Building the decentralized identity layer of web3” and “Interoperability from an infra and middle layer perspective” were the central themes for networking at Infra Gardens, Denver on March 2, 2024.


Infrastructure is the connecting tissue of the web3 technology stack, serving and enabling different ecosystems, providing the rails and tools for L1s and L2s to equip builders to develop new applications. This networking session allowed the Neon EVM team to deepen relations with some of our ecosystem partners and meet teams across the industry and the host teams — DIA, idOS, Secret, Phala Network, Kwil, Subsquid, LI.FI.

ABCDE Parallel EVM Day at The Source Hotel, Denver

An entire day on Parallelization!!! We could not have stayed away. On February 27, 2024, Neon EVM team attended the ABCDE Parallel EVM Day. This day was filled with exciting panels, speeches, and opportunities to interact with industry leaders, focusing on the future developments of the Ethereum ecosystem & EVM. Discussions on scalability solutions for the EVM-based execution layer focused on parallel execution, EVM scaling, merkle tree optimization, and data engines were some of the topics under deliberation.

The day was not only intellectually stimulating but also fostered team bonding and networking with industry veterans.
