The EDCON (Community Ethereum Development Conference) is the nonprofit global conference organized by LinkTime, a company that is part of the Ethereum community in China. The purpose of the conference is to improve communication and integration between the various global Ethereum communities. EDCON is organized as a conference series, and happens once a year in different countries. It is not associated with the Ethereum Foundation which is a Swiss nonprofit. The first
EDCON was held successfully in ESCP Europe, Paris, France on February 17-18, 2017, and this time, the event will be taking place in Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada on May 3-5, 2018.
The conference will cover the latest in Ethereum Blockchain technology and research (PoS / Casper, scalability, cryptography / privacy, security, etc), current trends as well as Ethereum and blockchain based projects and applications and community building and development. There will also be a superdemo as part of the event.
We sincerely welcome and invite friends from Ethereum communities worldwide to participate in this event. We welcome anyone to register to speak, and the topics collected will be reviewed by our consultant team to make sure that we are creating a top-quality event and can be as inclusive and fair as possible. We hope that we can make EDCON Toronto even more of a success than EDCON Paris last year. Still, the profits if we received from the event, will be used in the future Ethereum meetups and other releated events to support our communities.
