We will likely use gather.town and do a mixed format of talks, interviews (i.e. a VC interviews a portfolio company founder), fireside chats (moderated by B@C people), and (maybe) twitter spaces

Let's repurpose and update the Ledgerfest Website

Just added some ideas and people that I think would be cool to speak below. Please add people!! Alex Pruden from Aleo and Jeff Amico from a16z said they can help connect us to most people in the space so fire away!
