    ConsenSys creates applications on the Ethereum blockchain. Our mission is to use these solutions to power the economic, social, and political operating systems of the future.

  • About Us
    ConsenSys is a global formation of technologists and entrepreneurs working to build decentralized software on the Ethereum Blockchain. Our vision is that blockchain technology will allow us to progress to the next generation of the Web, that we call the “Web 3.0”. We are a global 'mesh' working across 30+ countries who operate on self-organising principles, moving away from the top-down command and control system, encouraging teams to create their own governance models based on principles of transparency, feedback and autonomy. At ConsenSys, you'll have the opportunity to learn, contribute, build, and play alongside a supportive and likeminded community.
