About event

While the rollup-centric roadmap continues to successfully scale Ethereum, other infrastructure considerations remain - interoperability chief among them. IBC Istanbul is an educational event featuring technical workshops, talks, and panels to empower Ethereum developers to use the most decentralized and battle-tested interoperability protocol, the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol (IBC), to achieve a greater degree of secure connectivity between Ethereum, its rollups, and other chains than ever possible.

​📣 Agenda
​The full IBC Istanbul agenda will be released soon! In the meantime, know that you can count on participation from leading engineers from Polymer Labs, the Interchain Foundation, and other teams working at the intersection of Ethereum, IBC, and adjacent technologies.

📍 Location

​The Emek Stage at Grand Pera, a historical theater located in the heart of Istanbul’s historic Beyoğlu neighborhood, has highlighted the best of cinema and performing arts since 1924 and now hosts more than 1000 special events per year.
