Lisbon, Portugal, has been chosen as the setting for Breakpoint, the first conference held by the Solana Foundation. The event will occur between November 7 and 10, in three distinct locations: LxFactory, a former textile factory that currently functions as the setting for creative events, the Estufa Fria, which is next to Parque Eduardo VII, and SUD Lisboa.

According to Solana, the chosen settings have open spaces to allow visitors’ safety regarding Covid-19. In addition, all have restaurants, bars, and historical and tourist sites nearby. On the program, the Solana ecosystem will be discussed at the LxFactory, solutions such as DeFi and the future of NFTs at Estufa Fria and development at SUD Lisboa.

The conference will be attended by FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, the CEOs and founders of Solana Labs, Anatoly Yakovenko and Raj Gokal, Cicle co-founder Jeremy Allaire, among others. Transfero, creator of stablecoin BRZ, will also be represented by its CEO Thiago Cesar at the event.

More than 100 panels and technical workshops are planned. Registration is already open, and those who want to organize a presentation during Breakpoint should contact Solana to propose the theme.
