Consensus Conference 2019

3 day(s)
New York Hilton Midtown, NYC


Invest Barbados (IB) will exhibit at the Consensus Conference, which takes place from May 13-15, 2019, at the New York Hilton Midtown.

The conference, now in its fifth year, attracts CEOs, developers, founders, investors, and others from major companies around the globe involved in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. This includes diverse groups ranging from Wall Street and Fortune 500 giants, to cryptographers and core developers.  This year, the conference will feature several key presentations, a number of exhibitors  and on-stage discussions on very timely issues.  


Some of the topics to be discussed at the conference include 'Reimagining the Future of Money: Science Fiction and Blockchains’‘Cat and Mouse? Securing Digital Assets and the Future of Adoption’‘Bank to the future? Earning interest on crypto’; and ‘Are Banks Disrupting Themselves Yet? A DLT Reality Check'.


Invest Barbados will be exhibiting at the three-day event and also attending will be Barbados service providers, who will use the opportunity to showcase why the country is a sound choice for fintech companies.  Barbados is home to the first blockchain start-up in the Caribbean, Bitt Inc, co-founded in 2014 by two visionary Barbadians who are also working with other Caribbean territories that are keen to embrace this evolving technology.  The country has since attracted a number of international fintech companies and has launched a regulatory sandbox to facilitate further growth of the sector.
