“In the last 4 years, we have witnessed the Ethereum community’s growth, and the rapid progress of technology. The Ethereum community is what drives us to continue to make this conference every year. ”

EDCON (Community Ethereum Development Conference) is an Ethereum community conference originally started and organized by LinkTime in 2016. EDCON has since been held every year in different countries worldwide, and has had a great influence on the Ethereum community’s growth and development.

  • Goal: promote the Ethereum ecosystem’s health and development, and become a bridge between the Ethereum foundation and community;
  • Culture: freedom, fairness, impact, communication, cooperation;
  • Date: March or April every year, to serve as a complement to the EF’s Devcon in the fall.

We hope to bring more Ethereum contributors together to boost the communication and interaction of Ethereum communities worldwide. We believe, with the spirit of sharing and mutual growth, we will see an even better Ethereum ecosystem and bring more people to this unbelievable wonderful decentralized world.

Together with the help of our supporters, EDCON has made a large influence in its previous years in EDCON2017-Paris, EDCON2018-Toronto, and EDCON2019-Sydney. and we hope this year’s event will be even more significant.
