TRUST-LESS 2020

A Proof of Stake (PoS) Validator Summit

Sat Feb 1th - Sun Feb 2nd | Virtual / Decentralized

Learn To Build A Staking-As-A-Service Startup

This is a pivotal moment in blockchain history. With Ethereum 2.0 & multiple blockchain networks launching early 2020, now's the perfect time for devs to learn about PoS mining & how to build their own staking-as-a-service startup.

The Opportunity Today Is Like Getting 

Into Bitcoin Mining Back In 2009

Early participants who run validators / mine will play an important role in the infrastructure of multiple blockchain ecosystems.


Because of this, many foundations are running incentivized testnets & giving out grants in order to get more early technical participants. This lowers the barrier to entry since developers won't need a lot of capital to be a validator.

The learning curve for blockchain is steep. Developers are not incentivized to get deep into the space because it's too much work with too little reward. 


By changing the edu narrative, we propose getting developers to invest a few hours learning how to set up a validator, start earning (and losing) $$ rewards, and then have them dig into the tech.

Every session & speaker at this summit will teach you something actionable that you'll be able to use IRL. Sales pitches not allowed.

Attendees Will Learn

  • What The ETH 2.0 Roadmap Looks Like  + How Staking Will Work
  • How To Stake On Different Layer-1 Blockchain Networks
  • How To Participate (As A Validator) Via Incentivized Testnets
  • How To Build Your Own Staking-As-A-Service Startup

The virtual conference will work like this:

  • The speakers have 30min to speak; they can tune in from anywhere in the world to share their knowledge. 
  • The audience can interact with the speaker and ask questions (there is a 15-30min Q/A slot per speaker). 


Due to video bandwidth issues, there actually will be limited spots (so we can make sure things won't crash). So in all seriousness, please don't wait till the last second to sign up. Make sure to claim your ticket asap to reserve your spot.
