🔥 Speaker Lineup & Unpacking Agenda

We’re glad to announce our first wave of speakers from our valuable co-hosts and partners.

As the event will feature zero-knowledge tech and the movement of the sovereign individuals, the 8 panels and 4 keynotes will navigate the topics of Data, Privacy, DiD, zkEVM, ZKPs, etc., featuring zero knowledge’s implementation of Blockchain and how to navigate cryptographic primitives as a buidler.

🔥 Why ZK Matters to Sovereign Individual

Sovereignty is an often overlooked benefit of crypto adoption, owing to its unconventional nature as observed in crypto owners and tech builders. Technology will make individuals more nearly sovereign than ever before. And they will be treated that way. Developments in blockchain technology have made it easier to own your data, applications, creative work, and money which collectively allows you to own your digital self.

🔥 About Cohosts

⚡️IOSG Ventures

IOSG ventures started investing in crypto in 2017 and has been an early investor in each major vertical of Web 3.0, making early bets on L1s such as NEAR and Polkadot, and spending most of the resources in the recent years in the broader Ethereum ecosystem, from DeFi (0x, 1inch, Synthetix, MakerDAO, Liquity), over gaming (Illuvium, Big Time) and social (Galxe, Roll, CyberConnect) to Ethereum scaling (Arbitrum, StarkWare) and privacy solutions (Aztec, Sismo).


zkSync is a trustless protocol for scalable low-cost payments on Ethereum, powered by zkRollup technology. It uses zero-knowledge proofs and on-chain data availability to keep users’ funds as safe as though they never left the mainnet. While security is our paramount priority, user and developer experience are central to zkSync design. We obsessively seek out improvements that eliminate friction and complexity in order to make zkSync the most enjoyable platform on Ethereum, for both end-users and builders.


Safe is the most trusted platform to manage digital assets on Ethereum and other leading protocols. Believing in the power of decentralisation and open-source software development, we are building the Safe web and mobile applications, developer tools and an inclusive online community to foster the core building blocks of the Web3 ecosystem.


Connext is a network for fast, trustless communication between chains and rollups. It is the only interoperability system of its type that does this cheaply and quickly without introducing any new trust assumptions. Connext is aimed at developers who are looking to build bridges and other natively cross-chain applications.


The 1inch Network unites decentralized protocols whose synergy enables the most lucrative, fastest and protected operations in the DeFi space. The 1inch Network’s initial protocol is a DEX aggregator solution that searches deals across multiple liquidity sources, offering users better rates than any individual exchange. This protocol incorporates the Pathfinder algorithm which finds the best paths among different markets over dozens of liquidity sources on Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, Avalanche, Optimistic Ethereum, Arbitrum, Gnosis Chain, Fantom, Klaytn and Aurora.
