Event description
KryptoSeoul is back, this time to Osaka! The KryptoOsaka event will introduce and connect representative projects of East and West.

About this Event

KryptoSeoul is more than excited to host its 4th global meetup in Osaka during Devcon Week. KryptoSeoul is a major blockchain community building team based in Seoul, South Korea, and has been consistently introducing promising global blockchain projects to the Korean community. It hosted global meetups such as KryptoNYC, KryptoTokyo, KryptoSF in the past. The next quest is KryptoOsaka!

In the KryptoOsaka meetup, the general mission is to introduce and to connect projects coming from East and West. Through the meetup, we are able to meet the top BUIDLing projects of East and West, the East with Klaytn and Terra and the West with Cosmos and Blockstack. The event is co-hosted by CoinMarketCap and sponsored by Terra and Klaytn, top projects in South Korea.

We will have time for questions, discussion, and networking. Popular Korean snacks will be served, and the popular (and RARE) item BUIDL T-shirts created by KryptoSeoul will be there for you, first come first served! The event is free but we can only accommodate a limited number of guests. Please RSVP early and see you there!
