It looks as if China is preparing to host the mother of all Bitcoin conferences.
BitcoinExpo China 2014 will be a three-day conference and exposition in September in Shanghai. According to event organizers, “It aims to provide the bridge for many startups, service providers and established traders to cross the Asia gap.”
Organizers expect BitcoinExpo China 2014 will be the largest such conference ever, with at least 5,000 attendees anticipated. At least 20 speakers have been confirmed, with many more to be announced later.
"It will be the largest and one of the most important events in the bitcoin world ever,” said BitcoinExpo China 2014 CEO Matej Michalko. “I think everyone who is interested in Bitcoin should attend this event to explore all possibilities between west and east."
One particularly hot topic at the conference will be the future of cryptocurrencies. Chinese entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to make connections with businesses from around the world.
Confirmed speakers so far include:
Dan Held from Blockchain
Davi Baker and MK Lords from Bitcoin Not Bombs
Stephanie Murphy from Let’s Talk Bitcoin
