The inaugural Blockchain Oracle Summit: Berlin, held in June 2022, was the world’s first conference to focus on nothing but oracles. For three full days, the close-knit summit was home to in-depth, technical discussions about oracles, with oracle teams and end-users discussing how to move data more securely, more efficiently, and in a more decentralized way. 

All the content from our summit is available for free right here, with accompanying articles to make sense of the more technical concepts. If you find any mistakes, or if you don’t understand anything in particular, please don’t hesitate to reach out! We’re always ready to talk oracles.
