Over the past month, the Phala team proudly sponsored and joined 6 guild meet ups across Europe as part of the DevX Global EU Tour.
These EU guild meet ups were live events where devs showcased their expertise and ideas for groundbreaking decentralized apps. Attracting global participants, all were eager to influence the next tech revolution
In Amsterdam, Zagreb, London, Paris, Lisbon & Berlin, our team showcased technical capabilities of PhatContract and garnered great feedback.
Overall around thousand attendees were met in all cities, several deals were closed and around 100 new developer activities were tracked.

In the Americas tour we are looking forward to participating in the online hackathon to reach thousands of Polygon and Ethereum developers to use Phala’s product releases.
Partnership with Developer DAO
Developer DAO is one of the most active web3 developer communities. With a developer first approach, this community holds over 10,000 members and over 80,000 followers.
