The biggest event of this month, the BTC conference, which is set to be held in Miami, is being touted by crypto enthusiasts as the largest event in its history. This is due to the fact that a massive turnout is expected at the three-day event set to start from June 3.
As Wynwood neighbourhood’s Mana Convention Center prepares itself to host the mega event, the manager has said that many high-profile executives and experts are expected to attend the event.
Some of the big names attending the Bitcoin conference include Square’s Jack Dorsey, MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor, and a prominent crypto supporter and former senator Ron Paul.
Per latest news report, the management expects as many as 50,000 people. In the last few years, Miami, especially the Wynwood area, has evolved into a catalyst of innovation and technology.
Initially, the management had planned to host the event in Los Angeles, but later, decided to move the event to Miami, citing availability issues. In a public statement, it said,
In addition to moving cities, we are also pushing the conference back slightly to June 4–5, so as to allow ample time for the second wave of COVID-19 to pass and for vaccine rollout to take place.
The Whale Pass
With a starting bid at three Bitcoin, the management offers a “Whale Pass” to enter the mega event and enjoys other perks, including a ticket to a five star celebrity suite for the highly anticipated boxing contest between Logan Paul and May Weather.
Besides that, the pass further includes a meet session with Tony Hawk, a famous skateboarder. Plus, the holders also get to have three premium Dom Pérignon bottles from 1996.
Another big highlight of the event is Francis Suarez, the mayor of Miami, who has been a public advocate of crypto assets and the new blockchain technology. Only recently, he announced his willingness to allow institutions in the state to pay their levies in crypto assets.
