The Stacks ecosystem is approaching an incredible milestone: The Stacks 2.0 mainnet launch. Stacks 2.0 brings secure apps and smart contracts to Bitcoin, unlocking a new wave of innovation upon the world's most robust, most valuable blockchain.

The launch will be just the beginning of an exciting new era for the Stacks community and crypto broadly, as developers leverage Stacks to build a user-owned internet on Bitcoin.

To celebrate this milestone, the Stacks ecosystem entities are hosting a global launch event. We'll have app launches, musical performances, surprise announcements, limited edition swag, guest speakers from partners like OKCoin, Staked, Blockchain.com, and many more.

We look forward to celebrating all the hard work you all have put into Stacks 2.0 mainnet. Cheers to the exciting new chapter as we continue our mission together!
