Consensus 2024 by CoinDesk

Amid the first Bitcoin winter, CoinDesk launched its first-ever Consensus gathering to unite the budding blockchain industry and explore its transformative potential. Now in its tenth year, Consensus has become the global platform to discuss, dissect and drive the narrative of a new digital revolution; from DeFi to Web3, AI and emerging technologies to regulation and more.

What is Consensus?

Consensus, known as the global epicenter for all things crypto, blockchain and Web3, has held its ground as the biggest and most established gathering of its kind worldwide. It is the only event that brings together all sides of the disparate crypto and Web3 ecosystems under one roof. Since its inception back in 2015, Consensus has been the go-to event for the DeFi community to meet face-to-face and take stock of industry developments, applaud groundbreaking innovations and get on the same page for the year ahead.

From the early days when bitcoin was just a fledgling with a value in the mere triple digits, to the frenzy of the last bull market, the FTX fall-out and beyond, Consensus has been there, front and center. It's been the place where minds meet, ideas collide and resolutions are born, right in the midst of some of crypto and Web3's most defining moments.

What’s in Store for Consensus 2024?

The tenth annual Consensus is taking place May 29-31 in Austin, Texas and is shaping up to be the biggest and most important year yet.
