The Bitcoin Conference, a two-day, in-person gathering of some of the most prominent voices in the Bitcoin ecosystem, is heading to Amsterdam for the first time.
Bitcoin Amsterdam Is Upon Us
Organized by Bitcoin Magazine and BTC Inc. in collaboration with Amsterdam Decentralized, the event will kick off on October 12 at Westergras, one of the most significant cultural venues located in the heart of the Dutch capital.
The aim is to provide a forum for discussion on Bitcoin, blockchain technology, and the future of money, as well as to promote the theory of “hyper-bitconization,” or the idea that Bitcoin will become the default value system of the world thanks to its borderless, censorship-resistant, and permissionless properties.
Recognized as the most significant Bitcoin event in the world, attendees will mingle among some of the most important figures in the industry, including key public advocates, politicians, celebrities, and more. Notable names will include Adam Back, Co-founder and CEO of Blockstream; Peter McCormack, Journalist and founder of the What Bitcoin Did podcast; and Stella Assange, the wife of activist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Among the topics to be explored are Central Bank Digital Currencies (CDBC), Bitcoin as an inflation hedge, the Lightning Network, and the integration of Bitcoin into today’s payment networks.
The bulk of the keynotes, panels, and fireside chats will take place over the first two days of the conference. The event will close with the Sound Money Fest, featuring games, Bitcoin giveaways, and performances from a lineup of artists and DJs.
Bitcoin Amsterdam’s predecessor, Bitcoin 2022, took place in Miami in April of this year, which united 26,000 Bitcoiners in the largest gathering of this kind the world has seen to date. Bitcoin 2023 will return to Miami next year on May 18. Passes to next year’s conference can be purchased here.
Event passes to Bitcoin Amsterdam are available now at the event’s website. Passes may be purchased with Bitcoin on the main chain as well as the Lightning Network.
