Secret Heads to DCentral

Secret attended our third DCentral conference, this time in sunny Miami just ahead of Art Basel! We had such a great (and productive) time at the past two conferences, we were excited for round three, and DCentral did not disappoint.

Like at the previous DCentral events, Secret Network made a HUGE splash. Agents and other community leaders made their presence known, and by the end of the event, it was like looking at a sea of Secret swag!

But that’s not where Secret’s impact ended. Secret Foundation Founder Tor Bair also spoke about Secret, the Cosmos, and Web3 privacy.

Special thanks to our Agent Coordinators and the excellent Secret Service team for representing the network, helping us staff our booth, and making this a memorable conference!
