Web3Assam is a web3 social community-driven initiative dedicated to promoting the adoption and understanding of decentralized technologies and their potential to revolutionize various industries and sectors in the Assam & NE region through an effective branding strategy. The community was envisaged by Digital Notice Media Labs, Linkedinlocal Guwahati & CryptoNewsPoint.
The community will be hosting a variety of meetups, hackathons, corporate events, cultural events, ambassador programs, college events, tours, NFT concerts, fests, NFT events, art exhibitions, and workshops throughout the region. The goal is to bring together like-minded individuals from across the region to share knowledge, collaborate on projects, and drive the adoption of decentralized technologies.
Shardeum is the world’s first EVM-based L1 blockchain that scales linearly i.e., the network can scale up by simply adding more nodes. Further, it can auto-scale up or down depending on the traffic in the network. It aims to be the first Web3 platform to overcome the blockchain trilemma.
