Consensus: Distributed is the free, virtual version of the annual event by CoinDesk. It runs from May 11 – 15. To join sessions and network, you need to register here. Once you are registered, please plan to stop by the Hyperledger virtual booth to connect with members and staff or to see demos of Hyperledger technologies in action.
