The world’s largest cryptocurrency conference will take place in Miami over the next two days.
Bitcoin 2021 takes place through Saturday at the Mana Convention Center in Wynwood, the region’s booming arts district. The event is limited to 13,000 tickets but is expected to attract more than 50,000 attendees.
The event features keynote speakers such as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Bitcoin pioneer Nick Szabo.
The conference is Miami’s largest in-person event since the beginning of COVID-19, with Miami branding itself as a tech destination.

Bitcoin project manager Brandon Green says Miami City Mayor Francis Suarez played a huge role in bringing the event – which was originally supposed to take place in Los Angeles – to South Florida.
“We asked him, ‘Can we bring the conference to Miami? We’re looking for a place where we can actually hold a face-to-face conference, ”and he said,“ Definitely. We’d be honored to have you here in the classic way while no one in the world would speak to us, “said Green.
“Mayor Suarez said, ‘Bring it here. We will work with you. We will make it.'”
