Consensus: Invest 2017 is a CoinDesk-hosted event taking place in New York on November 28. Find out everything you need to know about the event today.
What Is Consensus Invest 2017?
CoinDesk is describing Consensus: Invest as “the world’s first digital asset investor outlook event.” The event will bring together 600+ institutional investors, hedge funds, money managers, banks, and “family offices”. Together, these people – along with attendees – will “get connected with how to invest, store, trade and judge value in this new asset class.”
The ultimate goal is to help attendees walk away “with a richer idea of what to expect in 2018.”
In more straightforward terms, Consensus: Invest aims to help attendees decipher the exploding world of digital assets and ICOs. The digital asset industry has exploded into a $100 billion market in 2017 – and these assets aren’t likely to disappear anytime soon.
Today, the majority of sophisticated investors don’t participate in the digital asset marketplace. Consensus: Invest seeks to change that by making digital assets more mainstream.
