A year goes by quickly in the world of crypto, so the last four months of 2022 will undoubtedly be jam-packed with opportunities to travel the world, learn, and visit your fellow web3 nomads. 

By the end of this year, we imagine the crypto market, with all of its twists and turns, will bring us a few more surprises — and there’s no better way to stay informed than to connect with other crypto enthusiasts and colleagues in the web3 space.

If you're looking for ways to stay up-to-date with everything that's going on in the crypto space, attending these conferences can be very beneficial for you and your career. Whether you’re looking for investors, friends, developers, or co-founders, we highly recommend jumping on the the hackathon and conference circuit. 

So we put together a list of the best crypto events to look out for in the last half of 2022. We combed through the internet and found lists curated by the likes of Crypto Nomads Club and other web3 communities to find the best picks for any crypto professional out there.

How to find the right crypto conference for you

The first step to choosing the right crypto conference for you is to figure out what kind of information you want. Do you want to learn more about blockchain technology? Do you want to meet other people who are interested in cryptocurrency but don't know much about it — or are you looking for a team of devoted degen hackers to co-found your next big idea alongside you?  Events exist for developers (i.e. hackathons), traditional finance, or “TradFi” professionals, influencers, artists, creators, and investors. 

Are there any specific speakers at this event that are interesting and worth hearing from? Once you've figured out your interests and gotten a sense of what kinds of things will be discussed at each event, then it's time for the fun part: researching.

 

Learn about the best crypto conferences to attend this fall

It's important not just to look at pictures of previous conferences or review their websites. Actually join the community Discord channels and Twitter Spaces of one or two events before deciding which one you’d like to buy tickets for. You'll get an idea of how well-organized and engaging those events were through speaking with other attendees and experiencing them virtually. 

If nothing else, this process will help prepare you for the kinds of events out there (we admit, it can be overwhelming!) and help you start to decide.

 

👋🏽 We’ll see you there! 👋🏼
