From Thursday to Saturday, a crowd of crypto loyalists will gather at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center in Miami for the Bitcoin 2021 conference.
Bitcoin 2021 perhaps holds even more significance than usual, as participants can gather in one physical location after COVID-19 restrictions forced many other crypto conferences to go virtual.
This year’s convention features a stellar cast with a total attendance of members of Congress, celebrities, cryptographers, CEOs and other crypto supporters. Estimated to be more than 50,000 people.
Some of the personalities expected at the event include Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, Bitcoin (B T c) Permabull and MicroStrategy CEO Michael Sailor, of twitter jack dorsey and the Winklevoss twins – cameroon and tyler winklevoss – among others.
mayor suarezzo recently revealed that he bought bitcoin After the United States Senate passed its $1.9 trillion stimulus bill back in March.
Bitcoin 2021 will also see pro-crypto government officials such as Wyoming Sen. Cynthia Loomis as well as former heads of US financial watchdogs such as Chris Giancarlo. Brian Brooks. Giancarlo is the former chairman of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, while Brooks most recently served as the acting controller of the currency.
Sailor, Winklevoss Twins and Anthony Pompliano Friday will be titled Two Fireside Chats, while Galaxy Digital’s mike novogratz, Paxos CEO Charles Cascarilla, Square Crypto’s Steve Lee and freelance journalist Aaron van Werdum will appear in flames on Saturday.
On topics related to scalability, Zap CEO Jack Mallers will talk about Businesses Using the Lightning Network, while Jeremy Rubin of the MIT Bitcoin Project will appear in a panel titled “Bitcoin is DeFi”.
With the recent criticisms of bitcoin mining, it is perhaps not surprising to see some panels devoted to this topic, with titles such as “The Ethical Case for Bitcoin” and “Bitcoin Mining Fixes Our Energy Problems.”
Other panels employed for the event will explore topics related to on-chain analytics, proof of reserves and banking underprivileged.
