About The Event

Consensus is the world’s largest, longest-running and most influential gathering that brings together all sides of cryptocurrency, blockchain and Web3 community. Since its inception in 2015, Consensus has served as grounds for calibration, collaboration and resolution for thousands of professionals and builders from around the world forging the future of finance and the new digital economy.

The economic backdrop to this year’s festival makes this mission all the more important. A shakeup in markets has created rich opportunities to set the industry on a path to mass adoption while also weeding out the unsustainable projects built on hype rather than substance. 

Consensus 2023 is a call to action for developers, investors, founders, policymakers, brands and others to come together and find solutions to crypto's thorniest challenges and finally deliver on the technology's transformative potential. There could not be a more important time than now to do so. In the wake of the most tumultuous year in crypto history, it is a time to rebuild.
