[dropcap size=small]M[/dropcap]oney 2020’s presentation of (Bit)coin World:
(Bit)coinWorld at Money2020 is a platform where leaders in distributed payment protocols and crypto-currencies and leaders responsible for driving commerce innovation can interact, learn and forge critical partnerships. To help accomplish this objective, we’re:
1. Creating a dedicated agenda track to include extensive coverage of distributed payment protocols and crypto-currencies, featuring the pioneers and leaders in the industry,
2. Increasing exhibitor and sponsor presence, showcasing the latest organizations and innovations, and
3. Introducing targeted networking events designed to connect critical stakeholders and industry participants.
Though the event is half a year away, Money 2020 has already assembled hundreds of speakers and sponsors. Of those hundreds, several dozen are fully dedicated Bitcoin/cryptocurrency companies such as bitpay, Coinbase, Bitnet, itBit, Circle, and Ripple Labs. Every Bitcoin related company is on the bleeding edge of fin-tech, whether they are aware of it or not.
The keynote speakers for (Bit)coin World are Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. The Winklevoss brothers have been ardent Bitcoin supporters for years now. Previously, they were also the keynote speakers for the Bitcoin 2013 conference in San Francisco last year. Together, they own millions of dollars worth of Bitcoin and have applied to the Securities Exchange Commission to create a Winklevoss Bitcoin Fund for average users to invest in. They’ve also created a Winkdex, one of many measures for the “exchange rate” of Bitcoin that is calculated by using APIs from across the board.
All in all, Money 2020 will feature 400+ speakers from around the world. Bitcoiners will be particularly interested in hearing from people like the Winklevoss Twins. Jeremy Allaire of Circle, Vitalik Buterin of Ethereum, Nic Cary of Blockchain.info, Fred Ehrsam of Coinbase, Tony Gallippi of bitpay, Vinny Lingham of Gyft: The list goes on. (Bit)coin World will also feature speeches from individuals such as Kenneth Chenault, CEO of American Express and David Marcus, the President of PayPal. Last year, attendees of 2013’s Money 2020 reported that “Bitcoin” was the buzz word at the conference. The conference organizers recognized that and have created (Bit)coin World in response. I won’t be surprised if “Bitcoin” is still hyped at the event: We are still in the nascent stages of Bitcoin adoption.
