Cardano Summit 2021

It’s that time of year again where the global Cardano community will be coming together for a jam-packed schedule of exciting news announcements, technical talks, and networking opportunities at Cardano Summit 2021 on September 25th and 26th (US time zones).

EMURGO as one of the founding entities of Cardano, will be supporting and giving talks at Cardano Summit 2021 as a partner.

With the recent successful Alonzo hard fork to the Cardano mainnet bringing smart contracts, there is expected to be many promising developments coming from Cardano summit made by the three founding entities.

EMURGO’s Plans to Foster the Cardano dApp Ecosystem

Of the talks scheduled, EMURGO will be giving one about our grand vision and upcoming plans to help accelerate the Cardano dApp ecosystem.

The launch of smart contracts on Cardano has now paved the way for developers and projects to start building a variety of decentralized applications including DeFi, NFTs, and more for Cardano ADA users.

Just recently, EMURGO announced a joint venture - Astarter - to build a DeFi infrastructure hub on Cardano, including launchpad, DEX, and other tools.

With that in mind, EMURGO will deliver an address to the global Cardano community touching on Astarter and our other plans to bring these dApps to fruition for ADA users.

Yoroi Wallet as a Bridge for Cardano dApps

As the developer behind Yoroi Wallet - an official lightwallet for Cardano ADA and Ergo ERG users - EMURGO will also be giving a technical talk on Yoroi’s upcoming features.

Recently, to much fanfare, Yoroi Wallet announced plans to release the dApp Connector to Cardano ADA users.

With Cardano smart contracts now functional, interactions between users and blockchain-based dApps on the Cardano blockchain will require a bridge, precisely what Yoroi’s dApp Connector will provide

As a result, users will be able to simply access such dApps and do so from their preferred web browser via a plugin

After enabling the dApp Connector, the user will be able to participate in any activities that the dApp permits such as purchasing or selling tokens, gaining access to resources, or using other features offered by the dApp

This communication bridge between both platforms facilitates the validation of ownership of specific assets and can allow the execution of transactions for the dApp.

In addition to the dApp Connector, viewers can expect to learn more about other upcoming features in Yoroi’s short and mid-run roadmap.
