Comprised of over 750 blockchain experts, entrepreneurs, computer scientists, designers, engineers, consultants, educators, and business leaders with delivery experience across six continents, ConsenSys is the world’s largest blockchain venture production studio. Its vision is to use blockchain technology to create a world in which distributed applications and the Ethereum world computer support a new class of frictionless, global commerce with inclusion for all.
Oliver Bussmann, President of the Crypto Valley Association, said: “We are delighted to welcome ConsenSys as a Strategic Partner. With its size and scope, ConsenSys occupies a special place in the blockchain community, both in terms of development of public blockchain on Ethereum as well as in the enterprise and government blockchain space. The company has an incredible depth of understanding and expertise not just in the technology, but also in the universe of blockchain use cases as well as the broader implications of decentralization. As a Strategic Partner, we believe ConsenSys will bring great value to our members and to the wider Crypto Valley ecosystem.”
Joseph Lubin, CEO of ConsenSys, said: “We are very excited to become a Strategic Partner of the CVA. ConsenSys has always had a special affinity for the Crypto Valley, which has been the home of the Ethereum Foundation since its founding in 2014. We have watched the Crypto Valley ecosystem grow to become one of the most important and respected pillars of the global blockchain community. The CVA has played a key role supporting this growth through its community building activities as well as thought leadership. We look forward to working closely with the CVA on its mission to promote a successful and sustainable blockchain industry in Switzerland as well as support the broader global crypto community.”
As a Strategic Partner, ConsenSys will chair the CVA’s new Enterprise Blockchain working group, which will serve as a forum for CVA enterprise, corporate and other members to share case studies of enterprise blockchain projects and examine current and future use cases.
Ken Timsit, Managing Director at ConsenSys, said: “Over the last 12 months, ConsenSys has been very active in Europe, where we now have four offices and subsidiaries, and over two dozen ongoing projects in eight countries. We are delighted to be supporting the CVA and look forward to working with peers as we examine the use of blockchain technology to reinvent industry value chains and create new business models.”
ConsenSys, which through The Brooklyn Project and other initiatives has been actively involved in the blockchain policy debate in the US and in Europe, will also be joining the CVA Regulatory and Policy Working Group.
