The Consensus Experience

Consensus strives to be the premier ‘Big Tent’ event globally for the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry as it intersects with the worlds of legacy finance and commerce. Since its inception in 2015, Consensus has striven to be the annual “state of the industry” event, providing an introspective look at the previous 12 months and paving the way forward for the next 12. We’re called “Consensus” for a reason: we are the main forum where the industry discusses the most pivotal matters of the day, highlights the biggest successes and debates the most critical conversations. Our goal is to reflect the best ideas and highlight the brightest minds in a manner that showcases the geographically and technologically diverse nature of the industry.
