El Salvador will host Adopting Bitcoin for the third consecutive year, an event that brings together hundreds of Bitcoin enthusiasts from around the world. Organized by Galoy and Bitfinex, two Bitcoin companies with a presence in El Salvador, this initiative aims to promote awareness of the digital asset ecosystem and position the country as an ideal destination for investment. The event will take place at the Hilton Hotel, formerly the Crowne Plaza.
El Salvador made history by becoming the first country to officially adopt Bitcoin, transforming itself into the epicenter of global adoption. This new status presents challenges and opportunities for current users and offers valuable insights to benefit the entire ecosystem, from application developers and protocol designers to entrepreneurs, investors, and Bitcoin communities worldwide. It follows in the footsteps of Bitcoin Beach, a pioneering project that established a Bitcoin-based circular economy.
This year’s event is set to feature prominent Bitcoin mining projects such as Volcano Energy and educational initiatives like “Mi Primer Bitcoin,” “CUBO+,” and “Torogoz Dev.”
The list of speakers includes blockchain developers like Peter Todd and industry entrepreneurs such as Max Keiser, Mark Stevenson, and Mike Peterson, among others.
Looking back at previous experiences, last year’s Adopting Bitcoin event attracted over 1,000 distinguished speakers, foreign investors, and cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Discussions centered on topics like identity protocols, custody, and transaction speed on the blockchain.
Noor El Bawab, co-organizer of the event, emphasized the profound impact Bitcoin adoption has had in El Salvador and worldwide. She highlighted the growing number of individuals gaining access to cryptocurrencies and stressed the critical role of education in the adoption process. Events like Adopting Bitcoin play a pivotal role in showcasing the vast potential behind this technology.
Adopting Bitcoin 2023 promises to be another insightful and engaging platform for the global Bitcoin community, fostering greater understanding and collaboration in the ever-evolving world of digital assets.
