Blockchain Week NYC features Snoop Dogg, Jack Dorsey

Crypto conferences and Snoop Dogg are definitely the main highlights at Consensus during this year's New York Blockchain Week.


NSFW    NEW YORK CITY — Blockchain Week in the Big Apple is in full swing as financial bigwigs, tech whizzes, and experts come together to talk shop.

No doubt the biggest among the dozens of events is Consensus in Midtown, a three-day bonanza hosted by CoinDesk, reports Bloomberg.

The event features an impressive roster of speakers, which include Top Twitterhead Jack Dorsey, St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President James Bullard, and FedEx CEO Frederick Smith.

Rapper Snoop Dogg will also be making an appearance — headlining the Ripple after party at a secret location in the Meatpacking District.

Snoop may be THE celeb at Blockchain Week, but he's not the only famous entertainer who's into them coins.

A number of celebs have started endorsing crypto startups. There's Paris Hilton for Lydian Coin, Jamie Foxx for Cobinhood, and even Steven Seagal for Bitcoiin2Gen, before authorities cracked down on it.

Over 4,000 people are expected to show up for Consensus, a big step up from last year's 2,700 attendees.

But with each ticket currently priced between $1,499 and $2,999, it's going take a heckuva lot of commitment to get in.
