Miami Mayor Francis Suarez made a push to bring the Bitcoin 2021 Conference to Miami, and now it's official.

Background

In December 2020, Mayor Suarez announced that the City of Miami plans to convert 1% of their treasury reserves to Bitcoin, marking the first significant interest of any municipality or government entity in the United States. Mayor Suarez is intent on making Miami not only the Bitcoin hub of the United States, but a major tech hub. He has even made a push to start paying public workers with Bitcoin. Adding more to the hype, the City of Miami added the Bitcoin White Paper (a document informing readers about the creation and purpose of Bitcoin's existence) to their website.

What is Bitcoin 2021?

Bitcoin 2021 will feature a massive collection of the best and brightest minds in the space. There will be panels, events, artwork on display, and endless collaboration opportunies. The conference was initially supposed to take place in Los Angeles, CA, but due to Covid-19 procedures in the state of California, the committee decided to move it to Miami. It's the second time the conference has been held in Miami (first time was 2017).

When is it?

June 4th-5th.

The website notes that this is subject to change, barring the Covid-19 re-opening procedures going upside down.

Where is it?

This is yet to be determined at this time (March 5th, 2021).

A conference call yesterday hinted that a venue will be selected by March 12th, 2021. It's rumored that Hyatt Regency in Miami's downtown district will be hosting the event. If you're traveling from out of town, refrain from booking your accommodations until this is established.

Speakers

There will be over 50 speakers. Here are the headliners:

  • Michael Saylor - Chairman & CEO, Microstrategy
  • Jack Dorsey - Co-Founder & CEO, Twitter and Square
  • Chamath Palihapitiya - Managing Partner, Social Capital
  • Tony Hawk - Skateboarding Legend
  • Mayor Francis Suarez - Mayor of the City of Miami
  • Nick Szabo - Legendary Cryptographer
  • Cory Klippsten - CEO, Swan Bitcoin
  • Sam Bankman-Fried - CEO, FTX
