“The very fabric of our financial system is being put to the ultimate stress test. Central banks are operating with the belief that there is “an infinite amount of cash.” Is this true? Can central banks continue to prop up the system? What does this mean for the future of money? Will cryptocurrencies find their moment or will the future be ruled by central bank digital currencies like China’s new digital yuan? Will we see a rise in decentralized governance solutions to fill the void left by waning confidence in major institutions.
These urgent questions have never been more important and Consensus: Distributed is where they will be answered. Tune in for dozens of sessions across multiple tracks and days to better understand what the future might look like, especially in a post-COVID-19 era. It’s the same great content you’ve come to expect from Consensus, but virtual.”
