The conference is set to take place on the tails of the New York State Department’s announcement of its consideration of permitting regulated Bitcoin and virtual exchanges in New York. NYSDFS superintendent Benjamin Lawsky has taken a further interest in Bitcoin and digital currencies, especially following the NY hearings this past January. Following last year’s Inside Bitcoins Conference in July 2013, the NYC Bitcoin Center also launched to transition the tri-state area into a Bitcoin hub.
