The first global conference dedicated to cryptocurrency mining, called Hashers United, is taking place October 10-11, 2014, at the Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The conference will bring together professionals, hobbyists and vendors from within mining and throughout the wider cryptocurrency sector. Attendees can expect over 35 workshops and sessions, and more than 25 speakers, including Jordan Modell, (CEO, Internet Archive Federal Credit Union), Vitalik Buterin (founder Ethereum) and Charlie Lee (creator Litecoin), specially selected for their expertise and commitment to mining and cryptocurrencies.

The official press release reads:

“For the first time, there's a conference that digs deep into the challenges that miners face. No surface level, generalist chat here. Hashers United tackles pertinent issues, delves into the technical realities and provides working solutions to how you can not only be a more cost-effective miner, but how you can improve your operations and generate greater profits.”

Whether it is Bitcoin, Litecoin or any other altcoin, at the core of a cryptocurrency are the miners. Hashers United has been created to provide a face-to-face learning environment that offers not just the benefit of networking with peers, but practical tips and guidelines on enhanced methods of coin selection; improving efficiency; beating the onset of increasing costs and generating greater profits.

The conference will feature key figures from tax, legal and regulatory bodies from the United States to provide important updates. In addition, speakers will cover topics including protocol scrutiny, algorithm analysis (for better strategic planning and operations) and live mining demonstrations. Workshops will cover also topics such as profitability, investment, cryptocurrency management and more.

The team behind Hashers United is mining contract company Final Hash LLC, who has rig facilities based in Houston, Texas. Commenting on the launch, Executive Technical Director, Marshall Long, said:

“We’re in contact with miners every day and their needs. It’s time for a ‘real world’ forum where everyone, no matter their experience, can have an open and frank discussion about the key issues of cryptocurrency mining  and how as a community we can help each other to overcome them.”

Tickets can be purchased with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Blackcoin, Dogecoin, Devcoin, Featuercoin, Maxcoin, Megacoin, Myriadcoin, Namecoin, Novacoin, NXTcoin, Peercoin, Primecoin, Quark, Ultracoin, Vertcoin, Worldcoin or Zetacoin.
