Largest Bitcoin Event In History Coming To Wynwood Next Week, With Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Keynote Speaker

Wynwood is set to welcome the largest Bitcoin event in the history of cryptocurrency next week.

Bitcoin 2021 will take place at the Mana Convention Center from June 4-5.

The annual event, which is relocating from Los Angeles, is expected to bring thousands of visitors and fintech industry leaders to the area.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and Mayor Francis Suarez are among the keynote speakers. Other speakers will include Bitcoin pioneer Nick Szabo and former skateboard athlete Tony Hawk.

“Wynwood’s tech scene has grown exponentially in the past decade and being selected to host the largest Bitcoin conference to date solidifies the neighborhood’s evolution into South Florida’s hub for artists and innovators,” said Albert Garcia, Chairman and Co-founder of the Wynwood Business Improvement District.

Wynwood has seen a growing number of tech and financial companies moving there, including venture capital funds Founders Fund and Atomic, start-up OpenStore, audio streaming giant Spotify and PayPal’s former CEO’s latest fintech venture, Nirvana.

BitBasel, Miami’s local CryptoArt community and blockchain start-up, have commissioned area artists to create a 120-foot mural outside the Mana Convention Center, showcasing the history of currency and impact of digital currency.

Amazing what Wynwood has turned into. Now, please bring the rail transit (metromover and tri-rail), and please bring bike lanes so they can all scooter everywhere.

Should be able to fit in the hurricane-proofing budget somehow. Wires on poles are suburban/country infrastructure.

More like third world to me.
Even suburban development is burying all utilities and we can’t do it in Wynwood????

Where are the bike lanes going to go when Metromover flyovers take up half of the street, and what will be the point of undergrounding the utilities then?

More Miami tech hype to help inflate Mana’s eventual property flips after years of stagnation doing nothing good for those properties nor for the communities they’re located in

Sorry, hard currency only.

Hard to say what constitutes a “hard” currency at the rate the Fed’s balance sheet is expanding. It never ends well for the currency, as devaluing is the only way to shrink the real value of debt.

Do you take trains ? Nobody hardly does — Miami infrastructure is setup for cars not for trains

Los Angeles was developed for the streetcar, with a system making San Francisco’s look like the Metromover. It was retooled for the freeway. You can do the same, except in reverse. Over two thirds of the City of Miami proper was platted before World War II and widespread automobile use.
