2014 is shaping up to be the year of Bitcoin. From large venture capital investments to mainstream coverage to merchant and consumer adoption, Bitcoin is quickly achieving escape velocity as a standalone digital currency.

So naturally, Bitcoin businesses are heading to CES in Las Vegas to network and show off their product offerings.

Butterfly Labs, a manufacturer of Bitcoin mining equipment, is exhibiting at the show. BitPay, a Bitcoin payment processor, is hosting a booth. As is Blockchain.info, one of the largest hosted Bitcoin wallets. And BitGo, provider of the industry’s first multi-signature Bitcoin secure wallet, is attending.
