A 175-year-old textile factory has been converted into a dynamic hub for artists, architects and creative professionals. LxFactory can host up to 1,900 guests surrounded by restaurants, bars, shops and street art. This is the home of Breakpoint’s Ecosystem stage.
Lisbon’s historic botanical gardens span 1.5 hectares, housing hundreds of species of plants. It’s also the setting for Breakpoint’s Growth stage, where we’ll get hands-on with the DeFi, NFT and other use-cases driving the Solana world.
There are! A limited number of Developer Track tickets are subsidized by the Solana Foundation and offered at $350. To qualify for this program, you must be an active blockchain developer (but not necessarily on Solana!) that does not work at a project that has raised more than $1 million in funding. Apply here by October 1st. You will be notified if you are eligible by October 6th.
If you’re a developer under the age of 24, you should apply for the Breakpoint Global Fellows Program! Solana Labs, in partnership with Jump Crypto, will be awarding a significant stipend to promising young builders from anywhere in the world so they can attend the conference. Learn more about eligibility requirements and apply.
There are two tiers of tickets available:
Tickets may be transferred, but are nonrefundable. However if at the time of Breakpoint your country of residence has instituted a mandatory quarantine exceeding 72 hours, your ticket will be eligible for a complete refund.
If Breakpoint is postponed due to restrictions imposed by local officials, the conference will be rescheduled. If this new date does not work for your schedule, we will provide a complete refund. Please contact us at Breakpoint@solana.com to request a refund.
Breakpoint programming starts on Sunday, November 7 and runs through Wednesday, November 10. The afterparty will be on the 10th of November. Lisbon is an amazing city, full of bars, restaurants, history and activities, so we suggest flying into Lisbon early! We also expect lots of unofficial events to happen the weekend prior.
Vaccines are strongly advised and you are encouraged to get vaccinated before attending Breakpoint. The venues we’ve chosen for the summit maximise outdoor space and meet the guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting practices to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Currently, Lisbon requires face masks in enclosed public spaces, or when social distancing isn’t available. While the environment is constantly changing, Lisbon is looking to ease restrictions by the end of the summer as more than 70% of the city should be vaccinated by then.
Breakpoint will comply with all local rules and regulations regarding Covid-19.
