What We're Building

ConsenSys is a blockchain venture production studio building decentralized applications, mostly on Ethereum. We are currently building foundational tools for emerging business models in the cryptocurrency or Bitcoin 2.0 space. These tools will be packaged into separate ventures that are individually funded and skinned for different business niches.
ConsenSys is presently comprised of a number of core personnel -- some of whom are based in New York City, but several are in other cities around the world -- who are focussed on the identification, acquisition, and development of talent and projects, in addition to the development of our own internal projects and some focus on consulting work.
ConsenSys spawns, coordinates, incubates and accelerates single purpose vehicles (SPVs) through internal development, acquisitions, investments, or the formation of joint ventures.
