Meet the ecosystem members attending the Rootstock Summit

Build on or integrate with Rootstock

The Rootstock blockchain has always been community-run, from operating nodes to securing the network through merged mining. Now, Rootstock is moving to become completely community-owned.

It is the next step in the evolution of the blockchain that will ensure its resilience and longevity, and it all starts in Buenos Aires at the Rootstock Summit!

In July, the community voted on Discord for what they wanted the new Rootstock brand to embody.

Media partners

On November 10th, in Sans Souci, Buenos Aires

The new brand will be officially rolled out, and you can be a part of the event!

If you can't make it to Buenos Aires but still want to be part of the event,
a live stream will be available throughout the day on the Rootstock Discord server.
