The city of Miami, Florida, made headlines in the cryptocurrency community not too long ago when its mayor, Francis X. Suarez, announced that the city has plans of becoming a sort of crypto hub not just for the United States but for the entire world. Since that announcement, Miami has been steadily expanding in terms of influence, support, and continued development as it looks forward to being the city to host 2021’s upcoming Bitcoin event. Suarez, the Mayor of Miami is so supportive of cryptocurrency that he had, in fact, granted various employees with the option to have their respective salaries be paid in BTC rather than the traditional USD not too long ago.
This event, also referred to as the 2021 Bitcoin Conference, is expected to be a big Bitcoin-related event, perhaps the biggest one in the entirety of cryptocurrency’s history. Organizers are therefore anticipating a massive turnout, with more than 50,000 people expected to attend the event in Miami.
The event shall run from the 3rd to the 6th of June, and will be held at Miami’s own Mana Convention Center. It is likely to be hosting various big-time personalities and executives from the industry as well.
50K attendees expected
Among those scheduled to attend, we have the CEO of MicroStrategy, Michael Saylor, along with Senator Cynthia Lummis, Nick Szabo (cryptographer), the co-founder of Square, Jack Dorse, and also a former congressman by the name of Ron Paul. These are just some of the top industry personalities expected to attend, with the overall attendance predicted to be 50,000+.
Miami really has done wonders for itself in terms of emerging at the forefront of technology innovation and cryptocurrency progression, eventually transforming into the aforementioned hub.
Also, the fact that it will indeed be Miami that shall host this year’s Bitcoin conference is significant also because it is the 1st time that the city will be playing host to such an important event for the cryptocurrency industry. Previously, the event took place in Los Angeles. However, that was not an option for this year due to issues relating to the availability of viable venues.
Tickets for whales
In related news, whales shall be receiving a special entry ticket with bids beginning from 3 BTC. This pass shall grant entry to the conference, as well as five tickets (celebrity suite) to the Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather boxing match and a chance to meet the legendary skateboarder and the famous personality Tony Hawk.
Mayor Suarez is also scheduled to make an appearance and will be one of the speakers at the conference as well.
