Event Details

The North American Bitcoin Conference

After the grand success of The North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami Beach,
we are happy to announce the next in our conference series, with Bitcoin Chicago. 

More than 1200 bitcoin community members will soon be converging on Chicago for
a direction-setting conference aimed at driving the currency from speculation to mainstream.
Building on the recent success of the the North American Bitcoin Conference, Bitcoin Chicago
will happen on the 19th and 20th of July 2014, in the lovely McCormick Place. 

Rich in potential and steeped in controversy, bitcoin is a radically new kind of money that operates
without governments or banks. Already available and in limited use, bitcoin has recently become a
hot topic thanks to intense value-fluctuations, political pressure and surging media attention. 

• Bitcoin has surpassed Western Union in transaction volume. 
• Bitcoin merchant acceptance fees far below credit card fees. 
• Bitcoin received a preliminary “Stamp of Approval” in the US Senate. 

In response to these changes in the bitcoin landscape, the North American Bitcoin Conference
(NABC) intends to bring focus to the divergent bitcoin community that now includes enthusiasts,
speculators, business-users and politicians. To ensure hard-hitting outcomes, speakers will include
Roger Ver, Trace Mayer, Tony Gallippi, Jeff Berwick and Charlie Lee amongst others. 

As part of its mission to grow bitcoin use, the NABC will also offer workshops targeted at merchants,
and act as a forum for vendors, exhibitors, and recent bitcoin startups to share their latest innovations
and inform discussions. In addition, regulators, banks and government officials will be on hand to lead
panel discussions that are light on fluff and heavy on content. 

Thank you for making this event happen. We've been covered in CNN, Forbes, Miami Herald, Al Jazeera,
PanAm Post and more, all thanks to your help.
