Evolving to a new digital landscape

Tezos Community Update - April

As we continue to march on through the year in these unprecedented times, we urge people to stay home and do our best to flatten the curve. With that being said, we are starting to see the Tezos community is evolving just like the protocol as contributors in the ecosystem are pivoting to online events and working remotely such as the virtual meetup hosted by Tezos Berlin. We strongly support these initiatives and will be launching our online programs this month in efforts to grow the Tezos ecosystem and community.

TezTalks is back and now virtual!

Just last year around this time we hosted our first TezTalks at Draper Universty in San Mateo. We hosted featured speakers from the Tezos Ecosystem such as Kathleen, Meltem, and Alison discussing on how Tezos can evolve in the future.

This year we are extending TezTalks to the digital space with TezTalks Live, which will be our live stream meetups and TezTalks Radio, a conversational-style video podcast that features discussion and guests from the Tezos ecosystem.
