DISCON 1 Beyond the Hype

The energy and excitement around digital currencies is hard to avoid. Rumors of a massive technological leap forward have fueled an epic wave of tall promises and speculative investments. Despite the turbulence, a new wave of applications and protocols are emerging. Join us as we go beyond the hype to explore and expand on this emerging field.


We're tracking down the most interesting line up of speakers we can find! This is a great way to bypass the noise and get to what's real. With a focus on innovation and original research we attempt to better understand the decentralization movement.



What makes digital scarcity so cool? Will these technologies move digital identities forward in a meaningful way? What challenges lie ahead for decentralized marketplaces? We will explore these topics and more.


Commitment to Attendees

The DISCON mission is rooted in the idea of moving the Digital Currency & Distributed space forward through original research and ideas. With that, it's extremely important to us that DISCON is not a platform for product markeing and ICO pitches. While we are accepting a limited number of sponors for the event, we are commited to assuring that you are not the product.
