Afterparty, swag, & livestreams: How to connect with Mars contributors at Cosmoverse

September 23, 2022

In three earth days, Martians throughout the galaxy will descend on Cosmoverse to explore the vision for Mars v2 at what may be the world’s largest gathering of Cosmos devs. Whether you’re on the ground in Medellin, Colombia, or at an undisclosed location 10,000 kms away, there are plenty of ways to be a part of what’s coming.

Regardless of where you are, attenuate your receivers for a critical transmission on Sunday. 

🚨 Repeat: critical transmission incoming. 

One day before Cosmoverse, Mission Control will relay vital information to help you understand Mars v2. 

The Mars Booth, Sept. 26-28 (IRL only)

Stop by the Mars booth at any time during Cosmosverse. Learn about Mars v2, get clues for the NFT badge hunt, and meet contributors. 

Want free swag? Tweet something fun @mars_protocol or use the hashtag #marsv2. If you stop by the booth and show off your tweet at 1 p.m. each day, you’ll get some free swag. The better the tweet, the better the swag.

In-flight reading

If you’re not yet convinced of the power of IBC and Cosmos, Finding a Home for Labs should be required reading. In it, the authors dive into all the leading crypto ecosystems and lay out why they believe Cosmos could power crypto’s next wave of mass adoption. Read it before Cosmosverse to fully understand what comes next. 

Closing thoughts

The core Cosmos infrastructure has been laid. And Cosmosverse 2022 is a chance for devs to show the world how they’ve begun to use it. It’s a special moment in time when theory morphs into practice, and it very well could be the most important IRL event in Cosmos’ history. Mars contributors invite you to be a part of it – no matter where you are.

The future awaits.
