Magical Crypto Conference: Saturday - Sunday
Magical crypto conference features 2 days, 2 stages and 40+ speakers from all around the world including many of the industry's top experts! Our aim is that everyone leaves the conference with the feeling that they've learned something new. It doesn't matter if you've been in Bitcoin since 2009 or 2019 this conference will have something for everyone.
Consensus: Monday - Wednesday
Consensus is the annual gathering of the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology world. Since 2015, Consensus has attracted every major company, developer, founder and investor in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world to engage in an annual discussion about the future of the industry. Consensus is designed to be a big tent for the industry: it convenes industry participants ranging from enterprise consortia to cypher punks. This convening power breaks down the barriers that separate companies in the industry and allows everyone working on the technology to spend three days learning from their peers. Previous speakers reflect the richness and diversity of the Consensus crowd, ranging from titans of Wall Street and rulers of the Fortune 500, to pioneering cryptographers and the core developers who power the world’s most valuable cryptocurrencies.
We will be hosting Changelog, a one-stop shop for updates on all the development roadmaps for the projects that are driving the industry. If you are Consensus make sure you stop by and see what people are building.
Digital Asset Summit: Wednesday
Digital Asset Summit is a conference that helps bridge the gap between the legacy financial system and the nascent world of digital assets.
DAS is different from other blockchain industry conferences because it is designed with financial market and investment professionals in mind. Familiar concepts such as market infrastructure, trading and liquidity, and derivatives will be front and center, but they will be discussed in the context of distributed ledger technology and the emerging field of “decentralized finance”.
Token Summit: Thursday
Organized by William Mougayar and Nick Tomaino, the 4th Token Summit (link to www.tokensummit.com) takes place in midtown NYC, and includes a carefully curated roster of 48 speakers, spread over 17 sessions and 12 show-and-tell presentations on blockchain products and technologies. The Token Summit prides itself on being a coveted gathering forum for the top insiders, entrepreneurs and influencers in the blockchain space. Among the speakers, some notable ones include former CFTC Chairman Timothy Massad, Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures, Olaf Carlson-Wee of Polychain Capital, and Steven Becker, president of MakerDAO.
We’ll see you out there!
