Bringing Technology and Catholic Thought Leaders Together
The Catholic/Crypto Conference 2022 brings together Catholic thought leaders, technologists, crypto enthusiasts, and evangelists-at-heart for two full days of seminars, Meet-ups, strategy sessions, networking, and fun.
We aim to help individual Catholics and Church leaders understand the future…today.
The conference is for those both new to crypto and those who are fully immersed in it.
Addressing topics such as blockchain, Bitcoin, Web 3.0, NFTs, and the metaverse, conference speakers will educate on technological developments that will affect Catholics and all of humanity—and then will focus on how they can ultimately serve the Church and the Common Good.
Why Catholics should care…
…because we are our brother’s keeper (Gen 4:9) and called to build up the Kingdom and serve the common good.
…because we are called to claim all things for Christ and sanctify the temporal order.
…because Catholics need to be at the center of the conversation with new technologies or we will forfeit them to those who seek power, mammon, or agendas contrary to the Faith.
…because we are called to be good stewards of our resources.
…because Catholics believe that human ingenuity is often a spark of the Divine.
We Catholics must look at both the opportunities…and limitations.
Join us as we begin the conversation.
Topics to be covered at the conference
We are partnering with renowned crypto and blockchain subject matter experts to provide information on these new technologies, including where they are headed, and how the Church can benefit.
Not all our speakers are Catholic. They come from varying backgrounds. They were chosen primarily for their technical experience, ability, and vision.
We also invite deeply committed Catholics—theologians, philosophers, and evangelists who love the Lord and the Catholic Church. They will help us connect Catholic teaching with the potential of new technologies.
Small group strategy sessions, networking, and reflection time is strategically woven into the conference, giving attendees opportunities to discuss and process what they’ve heard.
Attendees can also explore resources from Catholic and secular exhibitors.

A Unique Moment in Time
According to technological historians and futurists, technology-focused societies experience sweeping technological changes approximately every twenty to forty years:
- In the late 1800s, inventors developed electric power, prototypes of automobiles, and radio.
- Forty years later, in 1927, the first television technology came about.
- Twenty-five years later jet airplanes changed global transportation.
- Thirty years after that, personal computers entered homes,
- Twenty years later, in the late 1990s, the internet would forever change the world.
And then we created blockchain.
In 2009, a peer-to-peer distributed monetary network called Bitcoin was introduced to the world. Blockchain was its basis.
Other use cases would follow—other cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, the tokenization of property, decentralized finance, and Web 3.0.
As Catholics, we must be ready to explore what these technologies mean—so we discern how they can be leveraged for common good and the mission of Catholic evangelization.
