Bitcoin News After a long hiatus from crypto conferences due to COVID19, the world’s largest Bitcoin event will take place in June in the crypto-loving city of Miami.
The Bitcoin 2021 conference will be held in Miami with keynote speeches by a range of attendees and dignitaries, including politicians, regulators, celebrities, Bitcoin advocates, and investors in the crypto industry.
The event was originally planned for April 30 – May 1 in Los Angeles. However, the location and date have been changed due to the second wave of COVID-19 and delays in the availability of vaccines. This week, Bitcoin 2021 will take place between June 3 and 5 at Wynwood’s Mana Convention Center in Miami, Florida (USA).
Although the conference is an annual event, Bitcoin 2020 could not be held due to the pandemic that swept the world. The Bitcoin 2021 event will have a limited participant capacity of 21,000 people due to COVID-19. As of now, organizers expect at least 12,000 attendees to make Bitcoin 2021 the biggest Bitcoin event ever.
Los Angeles to Miami
According to Bitcoin 2021 organizers, the uncertainty around post-COVID Los Angeles made it impossible for the city to host the conference this year, despite all their efforts.
Looking for another city to host the event, organizers thought Miami would be the perfect choice, considering that Miami has become a hub for many innovative technologies, including blockchain and cryptocurrencies. As Miami Mayor Francis Suarez is pro-Bitcoin, he was kind enough to ask the organizers to host the 3-day conference in his home city.
After hosting the official website of the Bitcoin Whitepaper Miami earlier this year, Suarez endorsed the cryptocurrency, saying the city supports Bitcoin as an “acceptable currency” and hopes to invest in it in the future. In March, the mayor said he would very much like Miami to become a bitcoin mining hub as it will leverage the city’s nuclear power capacity.
Top-notch Speakers at Bitcoin 2021
Bitcoin 2021 will host keynote speakers such as former congressman Ron Paul, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, Senator Cynthia Lummis, MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey. Other featured speakers include Floyd Mayweather Jr, the Winklevoss twins, Max Keiser and Warren Davidson.
The conference is an educational Bitcoin event focused on celebrating the largest cryptocurrency and decentralized technology, while also exploring the technical progress of Bitcoin with the collective contribution of some of the brightest minds in the industry.
The event also aims to drive mainstream Bitcoin adoption by giving people the opportunity to use cryptocurrency in the real world environment.
