Next week the Consensus conference (www.Consensus2019.com) will deliver over 200,000 digital tokens to Blockchain week attendees.
Each attendee will receive a virtual Swag Bag of “NFTs” — Non-Fungible Tokens that redeem for T-Shirts, time with a Speaker, Hats, Collectible stickers, CryptoKitties, Ledger Nano hardware wallets and even a chance to win real gold.
CoinDesk has partnered with NFT.Kred (www.NFT.Kred) to produce the virtual NFT Swag Bags. Consensus attendees can redeem, trade or even sell their Swag on OpenSea.
Jodee Rich, NFT.Kred CEO, said:
“This is the first time a major conference organizer has chosen to distribute Swag on the blockchain… no more plastic bags or brochures!”
Peter Bordes, CoinDesk’s Managing Director of Global Events, has been in the event industry for over 15 yrs, and said:
“The Consensus NFTs will provide attendees with both added value and a direct connection with their favorite sponsors and speakers.“
The Consensus Swag Bag (www.ConsensusSwag.com) is powered by NFT.Kred, a web app used by brands and influencers to turn their valuable digital assets into Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
Nolan Bauerle, Director of Research of CoinDesk says:
“Over 50 Consensus sponsor partners have contributed to the NFT.Kred swag bag. Attendees can redeem the NFT Swag at our Conference. They can swap with other attendees, and even sell their NFT Swag to other attendees on OpenSea”

Consensus is the annual gathering of the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology world. Since 2015, Consensus has attracted every major company, developer, founder and investor in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world to engage in an annual discussion about the future of the industry. Consensus is designed to be a big tent for the industry: it convenes industry participants ranging from enterprise consortia to cypher punks. This convening power breaks down the barriers that separate companies in the industry and allows everyone working on the technology to spend three days learning from their peers.
Previous speakers reflect the richness and diversity of the Consensus crowd, ranging from titans of Wall Street and rulers of the Fortune 500, to pioneering cryptographers and the core developers who power the world’s most valuable cryptocurrencies.
