Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao is slated to kick off the virtual Ethereal Virtual Summit at 7:15am EST Thursday. Zhao, aka "CZ" to his many fans, is the first of 100 speakers and panelists at the two-day conference. Anyone can attend, for free, via their computer, by registering here.

Thus far, over 4,000 have registered for the Ethereal event, which has historically been sort of the Burning Man of Web3 confabs. This year, the conference will focus on everything from decentralized finance to Ethereum 2.0. A who's who of speakers has been wrangled and will participate from their respective locations in quarantine, including Ethereum co-creators Vitalik Buterin and Joseph Lubin. Lubin is also the CEO of ConsenSys, which funds both the conference and Decrypt.

Decrypt will be covering the event gavel to gavel, livestreaming it on our homepage and even live-tweeting the good bits. Because that's how we roll.
