The Ethereal Summit is the nexus between technology and the people who change the world, bringing together futurists, technologists, entrepreneurs, investors, enterprises, humanitarians and creatives for a day of storytelling and knowledge sharing. It provides a platform for the cultural and humanistic aspects of the decentralisation movement. Israel has a rich history of technological innovation, and ConsenSys is thrilled to bring the Ethereal Summit to such a vibrant and dynamic ecosystem.
The event will take place in the heart of the city at Cultura / Sheva. It will bookend the inaugural Tel Aviv Blockchain Week, an industry gathering where leading Israeli and international blockchain and crypto companies will convene to explore networking opportunities and push the industry forward.
Ethereum will be at the forefront of the blockchain conversation. For the first time, Vitalik Buterin, founder of the Ethereum blockchain, will be speaking at the Ethereal Summit and he will be joined by ConsenSys founder and Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin.
Additional speakers include Dovey Wan, Founding Partner of Primitive Ventures, Eli Ben-Sasson, Co-founder of Tel Aviv-based StarkWare, Chen Zur of Ernst & Young’s Blockchain Practice, and Ethereal Summit founder Amanda Gutterman. More speakers to be announced in the coming weeks.
Lubin adds: “Israel is a hotbed of technology advancement and central to the development of modern cryptography. Blockchain technology and Ethereum has blossomed in a decentralised fashion, and in the year since launching ConsenSys Israel, we have witnessed incredible traction amongst developers, enterprises, and individuals who are passionate about our shared vision of decentralised technology. We are proud to be a catalyst for Ethereum development in Tel Aviv and look forward to ConsenSys’ first international Ethereal Summit.”
ConsenSys is honoured to be supported by event sponsors eToro, VMware, Orbs and Quorum. MarketAcross and BlockTV will be official media partners of the Ethereal Summit. “As one of the leading Web3 events, the Ethereal Summit has always been a space for collaboration, experimentation, and thoughtful debate amongst industry leaders. We are dedicated to bringing this ethos to Tel Aviv and are actively engaging local partners to showcase the excellence of the Israeli blockchain ecosystem,” says Dror Avieli, Head of ConsenSys Israel.
