Highlight of the Week: North American Bitcoin Conference!


         Highlight of the Week: North American Bitcoin Conference!

On Friday through Sunday of this week, many Bitcoiners will gather in Miami, Florida for the North American Bitcoin Conference. Following the successful organization of the European Bitcoin Conference in Amsterdam this Fall, conference organizer, Moe Levin, concentrated his efforts on a winter international Bitcoin conference in the heart of Miami Beach, FL. With attendees and speakers from around the world, once again, the global message of Bitcoin is clearly demonstrated in this premier conference and setting. It is NOT too late to sign up. You can even purchase your conference pass with bitcoinhere.

On Friday evening, to kick off the conference, all attendees are welcome to a pre-conference reception at the iconic Clevelander Hotel to network and get ready for two. Additionally, the Clevelander Hotel recently signed up as a BitPay Merchant to accept payment in BitPay. From planes, to cars, to now hotels, one can travel fairly easily with Bitcoin. As the price of Bitcoin goes up more and more are looking to utilize this unique currency for daily expenses.

Starting on Saturday, the conference will be broken into two tracks. On Saturday the conference will feature a free workshop for merchants to learn about accepting bitcoin. Leaders in the industry such as BitPay, New West Technologies and 3dcart will be demonstrating how one can easily incorporate bitcoin into their businesses. Alongside the Bitcoin merchant workshops, individuals can attend sessions featuring speakers including Ken Metral of Coingig, Chris Odom, Venture Capitalists, Jeffrey Tucker, Tony Gallippi, and a VC Panel and Startups Panel. The evening will conclude with another party at the Clevelander hosted by Triple Zero Media.

Some of the highlights of Sunday’s lineup include presentations from investors, a regulations panel, a Latin American panel and even a Mystery Speaker! The North American Bitcoin Conference will serve as the kickoff conference for 2014 and hopefully as a catalyst to further increase the size of the Bitcoin community in the US and abroad.

Remember, it is still not too late to sign up! Do not miss out and sign up here. Also, feel free to stop by the Bitcoin Magazine table while you are at the conference.
