There, ‘Whales’ enter into discussions with experts, speakers and sponsors in an intimate setting during network sessions.
Europe at the forefront of financial and technological innovation
“Demand for Bitcoin from investors and institutions is among the highest in the world,” said David Bailey, CEO Bitcoin Magazine.
Despite Europe lagging behind in regulatory and government adoption, the European community of Bitcoin developers and innovators is helping shape the future of the world’s leading digital currency.
“Europe has been at the forefront of financial and technological innovation for more than 500 years. Amsterdam has played a major role in the development of modern banking. Amsterdam is therefore the perfect place to host our first European Bitcoin conference” so continues David Bailey.
