Last week was Crypto Week in NYC, and among other things, the team attended the Consensus Conference at the Midtown Hilton.
Wow, what a huge event! Over 8 thousand people attended the conference from all over the world. We had the pleasure of meeting lots of crypto investors from Europe and Asia interested in new technology. There were also many interesting companies, both new and old, presenting. Ripple Inc. had set up a whole lounge to demo its latest product offering:
(It’s always great to meet fellow tech architects in person.)
Besides Consensus, several other great events took place nearby, including an event by the Security Token Association, organized by Jeff Pulver and the guys from Alchemist, which attracted several interesting people including Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock and TZero.
And, of course, there were the afterparties.
A lot of other exciting things happened during Crypto Week – suffice it to say that the following weekend was spent paying off the sleep debt.
