This year's sold out summit was a networking bonanza and a gold mine of blockchain and digital currency content.

Here’s what some of our attendees had to say:

  • Consensus was the blockchain event to attend in 2016. The caliber of attendees, presentations and networking provided the most significant return on investment that we’ve seen from any conference. Needless to say, we will be back in 2017. Ben Reynolds, VP Business Development & Digital Banking at Silvergate Bank
  • By far the best bitcoin event I attended in a long time. Ola Doudin, Co-Founder & CEO at BitOasis
  • Consensus is where the best and brightest minds in blockchain congregate to help shape the future of this exciting new frontier. Matthew Roszak, Co-Founder & Chairman at Bloq
