Brooklyn, New York— ConsenSys, the global blockchain company, is excited to announce the  Ethereal Summit will return to New York City on May 8-9, 2020 and will be hosted at 1896 Studios in Brooklyn. The Ethereal Summit has become a signature event of New York City Blockchain Week, creating a vibrant space for the industry’s leading voices and the builders of the decentralized future. This will be the sixth edition of the Ethereal Summit, following successful events held in New York, San Francisco and Tel Aviv. 

The Ethereal Summit is the nexus between technology and the people who change the world, bringing together technologists, enterprises, startups, entrepreneurs, investors, and artists engaging with the latest developments in Ethereum, blockchain, and decentralized finance. 

This year, the Ethereal Summit will feature two stages for attendees to navigate a curated array of topics on the future of decentralized finance (DeFi) and scaling Ethereum. Attendees will learn from the leading experts about the fast-growing DeFi movement that’s seen over $1B in value stored in new money applications. DeFi entrepreneurs and developers will showcase how the most powerful and gated legacy finance instruments like options, insurance, market making, derivatives, and margin trading are being rebuilt in a peer-to-peer fashion for anyone to access. Ethereal will also feature conversations on Ethereum-powered gaming applications, Ethereum 2.0 research and development, and the most robust enterprise Ethereum implementations. 

Speakers include Taylor Monahan of MyCrypto, Mariano Conti of MakerDAO, Robert Leshner of Compound, Flori Marquez of BlockFi, and CEO and Founder of ConsenSys, Joseph Lubin. Defiant creator Camila Russo and The Block’s Matteo Leibowitz will share insights from their market-leading reporting and EthHub co-founders Eric Conner and Anthony Sassano will host a live recording of Into the Ether podcast. The Ethereal Summit will also showcase developments from core ConsenSys products such as Codefi, Infura, PegaSys and MetaMask

We’ll be partnering with sponsors who share the same enthusiasm for Web3 technology and DeFi such as ZenGo, Zerion, RealT, Orchid Labs, Pepo, AAVE, Compound, HTC Exodus. Web3 outlet Decrypt is the premier media partner for the Ethereal Summit, and for the first time, we will be partnering with Pepo as the official social media dApp of the event.
