Polygon Coming in for Landing at Consensus 2022

After a two-year stint in the metaverse, CoinDesk’s Consensus 2022 is back in the flesh! Polygon is a proud sponsor and the team will be a major presence at what’s being billed as a “festival for the decentralized world.” 

Consensus 2022, which will run Jun. 9 - 12 in Austin, Texas, is expected to attract over 15,000 guests, feature more than 500 speakers and offer activities ranging from networking to an NFT gallery and a metaverse space. Key Polygon team members will give sessions on zero knowledge proofs, Web3 gaming and DeFi and much more. Polygon JAMPAD will serve as the home base during Consensus. At the heart of the hustle and bustle, Polygon JAMPAD is your very own corner to sit back, relax and exchange notes with fellow Web3 folks. Here are some of the things you can expect:
