Consensus 2018: The 4th annual blockchain technology summit (Consensus 2018) is to be held for three days from May 14 to May 16, 2018, at the New York Hilton Midtown. Consensus 2018 is presented by Coindesk. Cryptocurrency conferences are still a massive business, even if bitcoin’s price has plunged this year.
However, not everyone in the world is happy with this conference. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin vowed to boycott Consensus this year as the ticket price is high. The bitcoin conference that began with 400 attendees three years ago is now the centrepiece of a full-blown “Blockchain Week NYC,” an event run in partnership with the New York Economic Development Corporation.
