Publishing date


The Stellar Development Foundation is taking the stage at Consensus: Distributed this year in the Foundations track, which provides established blockchain networks like ours the opportunity to share all the exciting things we’re working on and what’s coming next.

We have so much that we want to share with everyone about the work we’ve been doing (and still plan to do) this year to grow the Stellar network. Despite the quarantines underway around the world, as an organization, we’ve been tremendously fortunate to have stability, allowing us to make progress on all the strategic priorities on our 2020 roadmap. All this work is in pursuit of our vision to create a world where everyone has access to the world's financial infrastructure, and this crisis, which lays bare the shortcomings of today's system, has only strengthened our resolve to make it a reality.

For us, we’re going to dive in on how Stellar connects financial systems so they can work together on a single platform. So that systems and forms of value can be interoperable with each other, no matter where you are in the world. From asset issuance to app development, we’ll talk through the ways Stellar is making money more fluid, markets more open, and people more empowered.

In our session, you’ll hear:

  • Updates about our success to date and strategic investments in our growth from SDF leadership like Denelle Dixon, our CEO and Executive Director, and Jed McCaleb, co-founder and Chief Architect;
  • Insights from an analyst who will share their perspectives on the health and maturity of our network; and,
  • Featured speakers from our ecosystem who are building successful businesses on the Stellar network through tokenization of digital assets, creation of market-leading applications, and increased access to regulated assets.

We can’t wait to connect with the broader blockchain industry at Consensus : Distributed and share how Stellar is working towards a more inclusive, interoperable global financial system. We hope you’ll join us on May 12 at 10:30 am ET!
