What to expect at the fourth Ethereum developer conference (ETH) starting today in Prague


The fourth annual developer conference, organized by the Ethereum community (ETH), started today in Prague, Czech Republic. Simply known as DevCon4, the four-day event will run until November 2nd. The annual conference is where Ethereum designers, developers, researchers and artists meet to further educate and empower the community in creating more and better decentralized applications.

Topics on DevCon4

The main topics of discussion during the developer conference are 6 and are as follows:

  • scalability
  • Safety
  • private life
  • Developer experience
  • UX and design
  • Society and systems

All about scalability

Many developers, enthusiasts and investors of Ethereum are particularly interested in the state of improvement of the entire network. Many investors believe that a breakthrough in the downsizing of the platform will bring the price of ETH to regain past glory in the encrypted markets. To meet this, the agenda includes the following sessions during the four days of the event:

  • Swarm Team Update (October 30th): Under the guidance of Aron Fischer of the Ethereum Foundation, participants will be updated on the progress of SWARM: a layer of data storage and distribution of the native content of the "Web 3.0"
  • STARK (October 31st): a workshop to expose Ethereum developers to STARK technology and science. The co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, had proposed the use of ZCash technology to scale the platform
  • Optimization of Smart Contracts by reducing the commissions of gas (October 31st)
  • Raiden Network (November 1): How the Raiden protocol can enable the network to become fast, economical and scalable. Raiden is an off-chain scalability solution that enables near-instant, low-cost, and scalable payments
  • State of Plasma (November 2): the speakers will update the community on the current state of plasma research and work currently underway. A Plasma variant called Plasma Cash will be discussed. This last one allows high performance sidechains
