Markets Be Damned! Let The Crypto Event Circus Roll On
Even as the cryptomarkets (especially ETH) lurch through a phase of heightened volatility and decidedly renewed bearish momentum as we head into Q4, the global crypto event jamboree continues unabated. The next big event around the corner is Consensus Singapore
. Crypto faithful can pay upwards of $2000 ($1999 to be precise) for the privilege of attending. Interestingly enough, a number of smaller events and meetings and parties happen around the main conference, and these are far most interesting and provide for the possibility of deeper, meaningful conversations, going beyond the mandatory routine of business card/telegram id exchange.
One can’t resist drawing a parallel here to Webster Hall in NYC from a couple of decades ago, when well-heeled Manhattan locals would shun this massive, very-much non-exclusive club ($10 entry fee which covered a drink as well!) as one for the BTCs (not bitcoin, but Bridge &Tunnel crowd, apparently), basically folks that came into Manhattan from Queens or Brooklyn or Long Island for a night out; The music was good, and the drinks were cheap, and that is always hard to beat.
Wish one could say the same about Consensus!
