Cryptocurrency conferences suspended due to Covid-19 will continue with the world’s largest Bitcoin event to take place in Miami
Cryptocurrency conferences suspended due to Covid-19 will continue with the world’s largest Bitcoin event to take place in Miami.
The Bitcoin 2021 conference will be held in Miami in June with a number of attendees and respected keynote speakers, including politicians, regulators, celebrities, Bitcoin advocates, and investors in the cryptocurrency industry.
The event was originally scheduled to run from April 30 to May 1 in Los Angeles. However, due to the second wave of COVID-19 and the availability of vaccines, the date and location have been changed. This week, Bitcoin 2021 will take place between June 3 and 5 at Wynwood’s Mana Convention Center in Miami.
Although the conference is an annual event, it could not be held in 2020 due to the pandemic that swept the world. The Bitcoin 2021 event will have a capacity of 21,000 attendees. As of now, organizers expect at least 12,000 attendees to make Bitcoin 2021 the biggest Bitcoin event ever.
According to Bitcoin 2021 organizers, the uncertainty around Los Angeles after Covid-19 made it impossible for the city to host the conference this year, despite all efforts. Looking for another city to host the event, organizers decided on Miami. It is an excellent choice considering the city has become a hub for many innovative technologies, including blockchain and cryptocurrencies. And as it is known, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez was kind of pro-Bitcoin and asked the organizers to host the 3-day conference in his city.
Earlier this year, the Bitcoin Whitepaper appeared on Miami’s official website. President Suarez has 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.
There Are Important Participants
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 prominent speakers include Floyd Mayweather Jr, 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 adoption of Bitcoin by giving people the opportunity to use the cryptocurrency in a real-world setting.
