The Community Ethereum Development Conference 2020 (EDCON), one of the most anticipated conferences of the year on Ethereum and Blockchain technology, was canceled by a sudden decision.
Officials stated that the coronavirus epidemic, which has caused many deaths and is currently untreated, is the reason for the cancellation of the event. Although there was no coronavirus case in Vienna, where the event was to be held, the organizers did not want to take this risk.
In the statement made by the organization company, it was stated that the decision was difficult for both the company and the WU University where the event will be held, but they did not have anything to do with this and therefore had to make such a decision.
On the other hand, in China, where the coronavirus epidemic was first seen, deaths due to the virus continue to increase. The epidemic in many countries in Europe finally appeared in Iran and 6 people died due to the virus.
