Meridian 2023: Unlocking Human Potential


Stellar Development Foundation

Publishing date


It’s another year, another Meridian! We’re excited to gather folks for the fifth edition of our annual conference this September 26-28 in Madrid, Spain.

Yes, you heard Idris right. Actor and UN Goodwill Ambassador Idris Elba will be opening Meridian 2023, but that’s not the only exciting thing on the agenda. Expect sessions tailored to your interests as a developer, entrepreneur, or general crypto enthusiast, networking, and more.

But let’s avoid agenda spoilers for now and talk about this year’s theme instead: Unlocking Human Potential. Today, our collective human potential is not being fully realized. In part, that’s because traditional systems generating value often exclude people.

But ideas are borderless, and opportunity should be too. Blockchain technology can help unlock human potential and create access to the global financial system – driving opportunity for everyone on the value chain.

Real world solutions have been top-of-mind for the industry this past year, and we want to celebrate the builders who’ve made these tools, products, and services possible. Each of these builders is unlocking access in innovative ways through blockchain technology and by extension, empowering people to meet their potential in real, tangible ways.

At SDF, we believe that fractured systems stack the deck against people’s potential based on where and how they were born. We believe that the Stellar blockchain can help unlock that human potential. And we want to devote this year’s Meridian to celebrating the builders in this ecosystem and industry who prove it every day.

So join us in Madrid for the celebration! Registration is now open, and you can purchase your tickets here. We’ll also be sharing more details about Meridian 2023 leading up to the date, so don’t forget to follow us on Twitter for all the updates.
