Jeff Denton, the global secure supply chain senior director, said, “It’s expensive, but it’s the largest one in the U.S., so hopefully that brings the value for the cost,” he continued: “My company is very interested in blockchain and how it can be applied to health care.”
Will Consensus Summit NYC Create a Bull Run?
Bitcoin price (BTC) grew almost $2,000 during last years consensus conference, and the coin reached its all-time high in the following seven months. BTC had also gained notable momentum during the first two calls that were held in 2014 and 2015.
Though the cryptocurrency market hasn’t made any notable movement yet, stakes are high for the bull-run. Experts like Tom Lee are predicting that BTC price could rally 70% in the short-term, he said, “Already one of the largest crypto conferences in the world, attendance this year is up dramatically and coming at a time when Bitcoin/Crypto is down YTD. Hence, we expect the Consensus rally to be even larger than past years.”
