Blockchain enthusiasts are gathering from around the world for the return of Consensus Festival, the annual premier blockchain technology summit hosted by CoinDesk. The event brings together a diverse mix of experts, developers, investors, entrepreneurs, and aficionados from all over to explore the latest trends, advancements, and challenges in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sectors.
However, the main event is not the only thing creating a buzz. Just like the previous years, some of the most exciting offerings can be found at satellite events. This year that includes both Grit Daily House and Filecoin Network Base, which have allied to provide the best experiences possible to Consensus goers this year.
Grit Daily House is a physical location in Austin and a mere four blocks from the convention center. It is also an official satellite event to Consensus run by Grit Daily, where more than forty of the top names in the blockchain industry will take the stage or head into the studio to record panels and podcasts that run throughout the day on April 26th. A few of the panels currently planned include:
- AI: Crypto’s Spoiler or Bulwark?
- The End of Crypto Theft
- Crypto Investors Brace for More Crackdowns from Regulators
In addition to panels, podcasts, and great food and beverages, there will be a pitch competition held at the house. It will feature startups competing for tens of thousands in prizes in a “Shark Tank” style competition and a panel of experienced investors that will include CEO of Republic Crypto Andrew Durgee and CEO of BizFamous.com ERock Christopher. Startup hopefuls can apply here.
Grit Daily House promises some of the best content you will find, with moderators and panelists from CoinDesk, The Defiant, Entrepreneur.com, Souq, Metallicus, and Nodle. Head to Grit Daily House’s site for up-to-date programming, details, and to get tickets. But if you want even more great content, look no further than Filecoin.
As a top player in the blockchain industry, Filecoin knows what the community wants. Most days, it provides a game-changing decentralized storage network that is transforming the way we store and share data. But during Consensus, it is running the Filecoin Network Base, another sanctuary during Consensus week that gives people a place to relax and take in an enormous amount of content away from the bustle of the convention center. There will be offerings including the following:
- Lightning talks
- Coaching sessions
- Networking opportunities
- Workshops with developers
- The latest info on the Filecoin Virtual Machine
The base spans three floors at The Riley Building and will be open daily from April 24th to the 26th from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Register now to get the Early Bird Ticket while it’s still available.
