Highlights of Devcon, Bogota – featuring Vitalik Buterin’s talk on Layer2

In Brief

It’s the last day of Devcon Bogota 2022

The event hosts guests like Brewster Kahle, Danny Ryan, and Vitalik Buterin

For the past four days, Bogota, Colombia, has hosted a major IRL blockchain event, the Ethereum Developer Conference. Organized by the Ethereum Foundation, the event aimed to foster collaboration via technical discussions, knowledge sharing, innovation, and debates. 

“Devcon is an intensive introduction for new Ethereum explorers, a global family reunion for those already a part of our ecosystem, and a source of energy and creativity for all,” the Devcon Bogota’s description reads. The event is created to “educate and empower the community to build and use decentralized systems.”

The speakers brought up topics like UX and design, staking and validator experience, opportunity and global impact, privacy, identity, and infrastructure. Then, industry experts talked about crypto economics, developer infrastructure, governance and coordination, Layer 1, and Layer2s.

Besides the main stages, the event also features workshops and the “hacker basement,” where visitors could experience demos of the last cutting-edge projects, find out the latest developments of fully on-chain games, and more. For instance, one of the performances featured generative artist Ix Shells, who performed live coding.

Keynote speakers included Brewster Kahle, Danny Ryan, Aya Miyaguchi, Pia Mancini, and many others. Notably, the Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin was also present at Devcon. He highlighted the importance of Layer 2 technology, which could support account abstraction. For instance, it would allow users to transact without paying gas fees directly and using any token. “There’s a lot of reason why L2 is our very natural testing ground for account abstraction,” Buterin said.

“I don’t see many competing approaches for how to solve the problem of ‘I have a smart contract wallet and I want to be able to send something without going through a third party.”
