Must-attend crypto and blockchain events in 2022
If you are a blockchain startup or enterprise interested in expanding your networks in the blockchain sector, you might be wondering which industry events to attend this year.
Although we’re now nearly halfway through 2022, there are still many blockchain events happening throughout the rest of the year.
Some of the biggest are still a few months away. A lot has been happening in the world of blockchain and these events are among the best ways to stay up-to-date and network with other projects.
Many important panels, presentations, announcements and connections happen during these conferences. In this list, we'll go over some of the most relevant events that remain on the calendar.
We've selected events in different parts of the world so you can find those close to your region.
1. Blockchain & Sustainable Economic Growth
Blockchain & Sustainable Economic Growth will be held in Washinton DC from May 25 to 27. It'll be an in-person conference focusing on the impact blockchain technology can have on sustainable industries. The event will be attended by private and government entities. In fact, there will be representation from Argentina, Saudi Arabia, the Czech Republic, Singapore and many other countries.
The event has great emphasis on using blockchain technology to address societal and environmental issues such as global warming, supply chain challenges and agricultural traceability. The event’s goal is to bridge the gap between blockchain technology’s public and private use cases.
2. Consensus 2022
Consensus is one of the biggest blockchain conferences every year. Consensus 2022 is shaping up to be an important milestone event. From June 9 until 12, most of the industry will gather in Austin, Texas to hear the latest news and developments from major projects. Many are waiting for this event to hear more news regarding ‘the merge’ which will see the transition of Ethereum from Proof of Work (PoW) to Proof of Stake (PoS). Additionally, many of the largest platforms in the space will present panels and talks.

Some of the attendees include the Hyperledger Foundation, Europe Blockchain Alliance, Cointelegraph, Dutch Blockchain Coalition and others. It's expected that the event will set the tone for the blockchain industry in Europe.
4. Token 2049 Singapore
Last year, Token 2049 was held in London and in 2022, it’s Singapore's turn to host the event. It’ll be a major focus for the blockchain industry in Asia, as over 150 speakers are expected to present during the two-day event, September 28 to 29.
Some of the major speakers will be:

The conference tends to be dominated by Ethereum but there will be many representatives from other projects as well. Additionally, it's at Devcon that most of the agenda for the Ethereum network is set, so it remains a major date for all those involved in the ecosystem.
