About Event

Chain Abstraction Day is an ETHDenver 2024 event, hosted by Agoric, Frontier Research, and the NEAR Foundation, where we bring together the researchers and key stakeholders focusing on building a more integrated, inclusive, and accessible digital ecosystem.

Imagine a world where the complexity of blockchain is just a whisper in the background while you, the user or developer, play in a digital space that's as easy to navigate as your favorite social media app. That's the dream we're discussing at Chain Abstraction Day! We're talking about a seamless Open Web where secure assets, economic opportunities, and a global identity are at everyone's fingertips, no PhD in crypto required. 🌐✨

Join us for this one-day event where we bring together the brightest minds in the space to unpack the chain abstraction thesis through a series of panels and presentations from industry leaders. We'll dive into the current landscape of blockchain adoption, the hurdles that are stalling progress, and the range and scope of solutions being proposed to pave the way for a more accessible Web3 experience. Don't miss this opportunity to engage with experts, gain insights into the potential of chain abstraction, and be part of the conversation shaping the future of the Open Web.

**Registrations will be approved in waves. Please be patient!
