San Francisco’s CoinSummit is coming soon, there is less than ten days left to the best event on digital currencies in North America, and perhaps globally. During these two days virtual currency entrepreneurs, angel and VC investors, hedge fund professionals will be able to collaborate and share own experience with each other, to learn and network in the virtual currency industry.
This year CoinSummit will take place on 25-26th March 2014 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
The main goal of the summit is to improve quality and innovations on the market of digital currencies. And despite of the fact that this year speakers are really respected and interesting, the most exciting part is The Startup Showcase, where 10 hand-picked startups will be presented in front of the entire CoinSummit audience. It is a great chance for entrepreneurs to promote their startups.
What concerns speakers, CoinSummit is proud to have Marc Andreessen of Andreessen-Horowitz as the keynote speaker.

Chamath Palihapitiya is going to be a speaker as well, he is famous for being one of the largest individual bitcoin investors and being the Founder and Managing Partner of The Social+Capital Partnership (Social Capital) – a venture capital fund based in Palo Alto. Palihapitiya is one of the most credible investors, who advocates for bitcoin in recent time.
It also was announced that Jackson Palmer, the co-founder of Dogecoin, will show up with his first public speaking appearance at the conference, which is pretty exciting.
