Bitcoin 2021 Conference in Miami is expected to become the biggest crypto event in history.

Miami is set to be the host of the Bitcoin 2021 Conference, which is being touted as the largest-ever gathering of crypto enthusiasts about the digital token. The event is going to be holding from June 3 to June 5.

According to organizers of the event, over 50,000 attendees are expected to grace the event, which will run within the first week of June, at the Mana Convention Center in Miami, Wynwood neighborhood.

The historical event will be hosting eminent personalities and industry executives, as well as crypto experts, such as Ron Paul, MicroStrategy’s CEO Michael Saylor, Wyoming Senator Cynthia Lummis, Jack Dorsey of Twitter, and leading cryptographer Nick Szabo, and many others.

The previous crypto conference was held in Los Angeles; however, the three-day event was moved to Miami because of the expected large turnout. In recent times, Miami has been at the forefront of technology, especially Wynwood, which has grown into a technology and innovation hub.

The organizer, in an official statement published on the website, wrote:

“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.”

Attendees can purchase a “whale pass” ticket for 3 units of the leading crypto asset. This ticket comes with a four-in-one benefit allowing holders to have access to the much-touted Mayweather vs. Logan Paul upcoming boxing match, they would also have access to meet the renowned Tony Hawk who has made his name as a professional skateboarder. Apart from that, holders would get three vintage bottles of 1996 Dom Perignon.

Miami Has a Pro-Bitcoin Look

Miami is one of the few cities in the United States that has a pro-Bitcoin outlook. The city, alongside its Mayor, Francis Suarez, has become famous for their stance toward accepting and adopting crypto.

It is worth noting that the Mayor had earlier declared that employees of the state could begin to get their salaries through the virtual asset. He also made a stunning declaration that he could be financing his re-election with the leading coin.

Another statement ascribed to the Mayor had reported that he said that “we want to be one of the most crypto-forward and technological cities in the country,” he said. “So we’re looking at … creating a regulatory framework that makes us the easiest place in the United States to do business if you’re doing it in cryptocurrencies,” added he.
