As the events arm of CoinDesk, the leading crypto and blockchain-focused media company, we treat Consensus - and all of our other events - as an extension of our newsroom. As such, we emphasize the editorial nature of all content that is produced on stage. What this looks like in practice is that all of our content and programming decisions are made independently of sponsorship or other considerations. There are no "pay to play" considerations made.
Please note that we do offer sponsored session opportunities. These are handled separately by our sales team, lie outside of the content team’s purview and are clearly identified in onsite branding. You can learn more about these opportunities here.
