From Thursday to Saturday, a crowd of crypto faithful will gather at the Raja Wynwood Convention Center in Miami for the Bitcoin 2021 conference.
Bitcoin 2021 may be of even greater importance than usual, as participants may meet at a physical location after COVID-19 restrictions forced many other encryption conferences to become virtual again.
This year’s conference features a stellar cast of members of Congress, celebrities, cryptographers, CEOs and other proponents of cryptography, and total attendance is expected to exceed 50,000 people.
Some of the personalities expected at the event include Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, the Bitcoin Permabull (BTC) and MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and the Twins Winklevoss, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, among others.
Mayor Suarez recently revealed that he bought Bitcoin after the U.S. Senate passed his $ 1.9 trillion stimulus bill in March.

On issues related to scalability, Zap CEO Jack Mallers will talk about companies using Lightning Network, while Jeremy Rubin of the MIT Bitcoin Project will appear on a panel titled “Bitcoin is a Challenge”.
