November 29, 2014 09:58 UTC

Contrary to fears that Russia’s hostility toward Bitcoin would inhibit its growth and adoption, the St Petersburg Bitcoin Conference will take place on December 4th, 2014.

The St Petersburg Bitcoin Conference is spurred on by the success of last fall’s Cryptoforum Conference also held in St Petersburg. The event will host some of the brightest industry minds, experts, and thought-leaders from the world of cryptocurrency as well as legal and foreign experts, who will share their vision of cryptocurrency’s development in Russia and the world on December.
