A Glimpse of Web 3.0 Future

Web3 Forum - Shanghai

Oct 29th - 30th

Hyatt on the Bund, Shanghai

Web3 Forum Shanghai

Web3 Forum was organized around a call: to promote a well-functioning and user-friendly Web 3.0 network. The vision of Web 3.0 is creating next generation of the internet, allowing each user to control their own data, identities and destinies.

Web3 Forum is hosted by Web3 Foundation. Web3 Foundation aims to promote encrypted and decentralized software protocols, innovative technologies and applications, and develop the next generation of the internet, Web 3.0. This year Web3 Forum will come to Shanghai China, aimed at building a bridge of collaboration and communication for decentralized project teams.

During the two-day gathering, hundreds of developers, researchers and entrepreneurs will gather on the Bund. In addition to the big names from the blockchain field and important participants in the Polkadot ecosystem, people from all walks of life from academia including the Internet, open source communities, venture capital, trend culture, and media will gather in Shanghai to share the latest trends. So multiple ideas can be interconnected, cooperated, and linked.

On the opening day of Shanghai Blockchain Week on October 26, Web3 Bootcamp Demo Day will be held. The 15 selected teams will be displayed on the 19F of Hongkou Financial Technology Building.

Previous Highlights

Our Values

Although we plan to create as much fun as possible for this year's Web3 Forum, it is very important to remember the existence and reason of the conference.

We are jointly developing a technology that can provide users with privacy protection and coordinate new economic and social models that better represent our interests. This is a difficult task, requiring coordination of numerous agreements and obtaining support from different teams.

All open source projects, all developers, and all people from different backgrounds and opinions are welcome to participate.

In addition to the targeted invitations of influential guests, we have also opened some places to welcome people from academia, technology industry, open source communities, venture capital, trend culture, and the media to join in. Applicants for the speech can submit a 20-minute speech content, the topic of which is around blockchain technology and Web3 related advocacy plans.
