One of the biggest conferences on blockchain will be held next week in the Big Apple. Consensus 2017 attracts the best and the brightest in the industry, blockchain aficionados, and curious newcomers alike.
The conference is being held the Marriott Marquis hotel in Times Square. And in a clear sign of blockchains continued hype cycle, Consensus attendance has more than quadrupled, from 600 in 2015 to more than 2500 participants from 20 countries this year. And the number of sponsors has shot up from 13 to 80.
“More individuals and companies are hearing about blockchain technology and want to understand what it's all about,” says Jacob Donnelly, Director of Marketing at CoinDesk. “CoinDesk and the Consensus event are both great ways to learn about the latest advancements, so they come to learn from the smartest people in the space.”
Gem will be there in full force, both to share our expertise and to learn from others. Word on the street is that we might even make some exciting announcements. Find out the must-attend events for Gem at this year’s Consensus in our roundup post.
