Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon, said of Polygon Connect’s inaugural India event, “India has a huge potential to build a good Web3 ecosystem.” The country is a developing developer land, and empowering the Indian developer ecosystem is critical for constructing the next-generation Web3 world.
“Polygon Connect aims to bring the Web3 community together and provide them with the opportunity to participate in live events, workshops, and panel discussions that will help them kickstart their dream projects.
“We are excited to bring our global initiative to our home country of India, where we will continue to guide and support the local developer communities.”
Polygon will host ‘Guild Events,’ community-driven events, in seven cities leading up to Connect in India, beginning with Kochi on November 5 and continuing with Jaipur, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and Delhi.
The roadshow aims to bring together some of the blockchain world’s brightest minds to provide in-person, hands-on blockchain education at Guilds across the country.
