Ethereal is an Ethereum -focused conference which attempts to bring futurists, entrepreneurs, investors, media icons, government officials, artists, musicians, and humanitarians for two days of storytelling and knowledge sharing. 
Ethereal is the nexus between technology and the disruptive individuals who change the world. It consists of a group of people who believe that the world can be organized differently. Organized in a decentralized, more efficient, and democratizing way.  Ethereal believes this world can be built on a fundamentally new technology - blockchain - which by its nature is a fluid, open, networked innovation. Its mission is to create systems that enable humanity to move with a shared purpose. Its work allows value to flow seamlessly across networks of people, distributing abundance among the many rather than concentrating among a few. Summit leaders envision a world blooming with plurality, and bound together by consensus - one where all are free to realize the highest expression of human potential. Technology can be a tool for change. Whether the world decides if this change is for good or evil, it is the catalyst that drives society forward. The tools for connecting the dots are finally here. Blockchains can be used to help us reorganize society to embody humanity's beliefs.
