Matic Network hosted a Seoul Community Meetup on Wednesday, July 24th in South Korea where Co-Founder & COO Sandeep Nailwal got the chance to interact with the Korean community and discuss Matic’s current progress towards project developments as well as any upcoming plans for Matic.
It was a huge success as Sandeep was able to engage with the Korean blockchain enthusiasts. Like-minded individuals were given the opportunity to network with each other on top of sharing their common interest in Matic Network. Sandeep, as well as a few key speakers from the industry, took the stage to present their insights on blockchain.
The Seoul community meetup was a great opportunity for users and developers to learn about the conception of Matic Network and explain the different features that Matic offers to accelerate mass adoption of blockchain as well as bring more developers on board to BUIDL on Matic.
Sandeep emphasized the current focal areas that Matic Network intends on integrating in which is Decentralized Finance (DeFi), Gaming, Payments, and Marketplaces. For the developers that attended, we showcased some of our Ecosystem Dev Tools such as our Matic wallet, Dagger, and Hermione.
“If you are an Ethereum developer, then you are already a developer on Matic Network.”
