Octopus Network at ETHDenver 2022 — Let’s BUIDL!

It’s Octopus Network’s debut at ETHDenver, Feb 11–20! Learn about launching Appchains at our presentations and AMA, join us for a mini summit and after party with NEAR protocol, #BUIDL for our $15k bounty tba February 11th!

Our mission is to launch an innovation wave on Web3

Octopus Network is a new multichain cryptonetwork created to bootstrap and run Substrate-based decentralized application chains, aka Appchains.

Appchains need security, but bootstrapping PoS security is labour-intensive and expensive. The Octopus Network decreases the expense and effort to launch an appchain. By providing flexible leased security, out-of-box interoperability, one-stop infrastructure, and a ready-to-be-engaged community, Octopus Network is unleashing an innovation wave on Web3.0.

Octopus Network Appchains can interoperate with blockchains outside the Octopus Network, such as with Ethereum via Rainbow Bridge, or with any IBC enabled blockchains directly via the out-of-box IBC pallet.

Trustless crosschain interoperability sits at the core of the Octopus Network protocol stack. The crosschain hub — the Octopus Relay — is not an independent layer1 blockchain but a set of smart contracts running on NEAR Protocol that implements the security leasing market (LPoS).

Beyond the support we give appchains, we offer the Octopus Accelerator Programme which is open to Substrate Developers and Web3.0 Teams around the world who wish to supercharge their mature-stage projects with mentoring, training, expert advice, partnerships, and grant opportunities. And we recently launched our international Substrate Developer Training courses in Vietnam — the first in our country-by-country launch roadmap.

ETHDenver expands beyond the Ethereum Ecosystem

In 2020, ETHDenver opened its doors to technological diversity by welcoming other chains and technologies that aren’t directly related to Ethereum — recognizing a future where blockchain interoperability and collaboration creates limitless possibilities.

In 2022, ETHDenver has continued to expand beyond Ethereum, inviting non-Ethereum and agnostic blockchain projects such as Near, Polkadot, Polygon, Harmony, etc., to ETHDenver.

“We see 2022 as the year of mass adoption for Web3.0.” — John Paller, Founder of ETHDenver.

As a proud crosschain interoperable member of the NEAR Ecosystem, we are excited to share all of the benefits that NEAR and Octopus Network offer protocols interested in launching application-specific blockchains. Make sure to check out our events during #BUILDWeek.
