DeFi Security Summit

November 7-9 2024 @Devcon

Bangkok, Thailand

 

DeFi Security Summit (DSS) is a unique, marketing-free annual event for education and technical advances in securing decentralized applications on top of blockchain technology. The forum brings together hackers, protocol builders, and tool providers who are interested in technologies and disciplines to make blockchain applications safer, both off-chain and on-chain components. The summit is inspired by security meetings like CCC and Defcon, which focus on security researchers, bringing together security providers and consumers. DSS 2024 is our third annual conference following two successful events in 2022 and 2023.
