The Chainlink Community Rapidly Expands Around the World, Driving Ecosystem Growth
Use our Community Events Page to find all Chainlink meetups, conferences, and online content
Since the launch of the Chainlink Community Advocate Program three months ago, the Chainlink Advocate community has thoroughly embraced spreading the message of connected smart contracts globally. A testament to this outgrowth is the rapid expansion of multiple community-hosted meetups around the world each week. We’re invigorated by the enthusiasm of our volunteer Advocates both online and at offline events. They have inspired more community members, ecosystem integrators, and developers to get involved with Chainlink.
In the three months since the Advocate Program launch, we now have:
30+ Chainlink advocates in 15+ countries. Our Advocates cover all corners of the globe and speak a variety of languages.

The Exciting Future Ahead
This is only the beginning of an exciting future for the community-fueled growth of Chainlink.
