Two months after the successful edition in London, the Inside Bitcoin Conference crypto-meeting is back in Europe with many prestigious guests featured. The main purpose of this highly anticipated conference is to address the various topics that create the debates in the digital currency ecosystem. Nicolas Cary, Blockchain.info CEO, will provide the opening keynote that will be followed by two days of panels and sessions on various topics such as regulation, bitcoin adoption, and the future of altcoins.
This conference is timely, especially in light of the recent postponement of EuroBitcoin to early 2015. EuroBitcoin wanted to be the first Bitcoin conference ever entirely conducted in French and is somewhat being trumped by Inside Bitcoin. Inside Bitcoin adopts a more global approach, where ¾ of the sessions will be held in French, the remaining part will be held in Shakespeare’s language. However, the international dimension is still very present as indicated by the organizer, Rising Media:
“The conference will be held at the CAP15 space near the Eiffel Tower, and Inside Bitcoin will features speakers and attendees from over 15 countries for what will be the largest conference to date in Europe. Twenty sessions led by more than 30 Bitcoin visionaries and followed by nearly 400 enthusiasts will set a new standard for conferences on this subject in France.”
French bitcoiners, which are among the most active in Europe, can therefore rejoice themselves to see the appearance of an international conference on the french soil and its accompanying cohort of sessions and panels. See for yourself:
